Gorman Heritage Farm

The Gorman Heritage Farm in Evendale, OH is a 122-acre working farm and non-profit outdoor education center that has two outdoor wedding areas and a reception areas to choose from. The first, the West Lawn, has a space overlooking the Children’s Garden. In October only, a patch is opened up in a field of sunflowers, creating their aptly named Sunflower Field space. For receptions (and ceremonies in inclement weather), the Pavilion and Marquee Tent provide space and shelter for your party.

Rentals include tables and chairs. Hay bales are available for rent for ceremonies. All set-up and clean up is the responsibility of the renter. There are also many county-style add-ons available including hay rides, wagon rides, field cut flowers and sunflowers, and fire pits.

The Pavilion and Marquee Tent, where receptions are held, and if needed, ceremonies in bad weather.

The Gorman Farm’s wedding ceremony locations are completely uncovered and obviously not climate controlled so keep that in consideration particularly if considering spring dates. There is no rescheduling offered in case of bad weather, and ceremonies would have to take place under the pavilion or tent in that case.
