My family held a celebration of life at the barn and it was quite memorable. The venue was beautiful. A gem in the heart of Maplewood

Our extended Family hosted a 90th Birthday party for my mother-in-law at Bruentrup Farm in June. I'm digging for words to say how overly pleased we were. Thanks Bruentrup Heritage Farm!

A gorgeous place for a wedding. The staff was on top of everything we needed or wanted, and the whole venue was stunning.
