Our Farm

Golden Oak Farm is a rustically elegant event venue in Southern Minnesota, perfect for weddings, family reunions, crafting retreats, and so much more - conveniently located twelve miles west of Northfield on Highway 19 + just 30 miles south of the Twin Cities in the rural countryside. We offer an antique barn and lodging for fourteen in our main villa, all nestled on one hundred acres of rolling hills. 

Our Story

Over 100 years ago a brave + adventurous family decided to make their homestead in Webster, Minnesota. They worked tirelessly, building with materials they found on the land. Trees were cut, boulders were moved, and this paradise was created.

Through the years babies were born, children were raised, families came and went + the cows still got milked.  

Golden Oak started as a dairy farm, transitioned to a horse farm, became a safe place for rescued horses and now, llamas peacefully wander the grounds.  Generations of kids explored our woods + hiked the hills.  I can only imagine, like our kids, past generations of children playing in the creek on a summer day, drenched in mud and Minnesota sunshine.

Over the last few years the farm has taken on yet another identity.  We've been working tirelessly to create a magical place for families to celebrate weddings and other events.  During our journey, we've met other families who were raised here starting back in the 1940's.  We've seen tears of joy as people tell us their stories + memories of growing up on our farm.

You'll see touches from the past at Golden Oak.  You'll find original, hand hewn boards in our barn.  The historic farm house is still the core and foundation of our villa. Our guest house was once a corn crib + now offers a lovely space for brides to get ready for their big day.

The farm is ours for now.  Who knows what generations down the road will be inspired to do.  Our goal is to continue making memories at Golden Oak Farm to give future generations a gift that they will forever be able to cherish + nurture.
