We had the most amazing time shooting at this location. The owners, Bonnie and Patrick, are the sweetest and most generous people. The amenities made it feel like multiple locations in one. We feel very lucky to have been able to shoot here for our music video. Thanks Patrick & Bonnie!

I love this space, it's so unique and unlike anything else in the area. We made a short film this past weekend here, primarily using the theater as well as the living room area. The owners, Patrick and Bonnie, could not have been more accommodating and helpful.

About Ranch venues

A ranch is a large farm or estate, typically devoted to raising livestock such as cattle and horses. These sprawling acres have also become increasingly popular event spaces that offer a unique blend of rustic charm and modern amenities. Typically, these properties are located in rural areas with access to wide-open spaces, sprawling green pastures, and natural beauty. This can provide a sense of peace and tranquility that is hard to find elsewhere.

The expansive open spaces are what make ranches perfect hosts for large gatherings, with plenty of room for activities like horseback riding, archery, or team-building exercises. Most of these locations also feature rustic buildings such as barns and cabins that make ideal settings for ceremonies, receptions, or other special events.

Other amenities such as fire pits, BBQ grills, and picnics are an added plus when hosting occasions like reunions. Ranch venues also often come equipped with plenty of parking space and well-maintained gardens full of lush greenery, which provide a unique backdrop for photos and videos during events.

The Best Events for Ranch venues

  • Wedding
    Weddings are a classic event to hold at a ranch. With a spacious outdoor area and garden, the bride and groom can create their dream nuptials with an aisle for the bride’s entrance and even hay bale seating or benches for guests. For activities, traditional favorites like horse rides or corn hole tournaments are ideal options. The grounds are also suited for lawn games such as croquet, bocce ball, and even horseshoes.
  • Birthday Parties
    Ranch venues are also ideal locations for themed birthday parties. Some great options include luau or western barbeques complete with live music, bonfires, and delicious food choices that everyone will enjoy! The space can accommodate several different types of games or activities, including a petting zoo or pony rides. Guests can take turns on a mechanical bull or use the area to play volleyball or badminton.
  • Corporate Events
    Ranches make excellent locations for corporate events like team-building days and retreats. Activities like archery tag, laser tag, and paintball are fun ways to encourage teamwork. They are also perfect settings for offsite meetings, product launch events, and end-year parties.
  • Music Festivals
    The space ranches provide makes them great venues for festivals to be held in their location. The vast open space allows festivalgoers to pitch tents for multi-day events, and organizers can also set up multiple stages with sound systems and invite diverse vendors to set up booths at the location.

What to Look for in Ranch Venues

  • Location
    The specific area where the ranch is located should be convenient for guests, with easy access to major highways and close proximity to nearby towns or cities for lodging or additional activities. If parking is required, make sure that the venue provides ample space.
  • Amenities
    Look for a ranch that has amenities suited to the type of occasion you’re planning. Consider features like a pool or spa area, outdoor activities like horseback riding, hiking trails, fishing, or golfing, a restaurant on-site, meeting rooms, entertainment options such as live music performances, features like ramps or elevators, and any other amenities you think would make the function more enjoyable for your guests.
  • Layout
    When evaluating potential venues, look into the layout and if it suits your needs. For example, how far apart are restrooms located from other areas? Is there enough seating available throughout? Are pathways around certain parts of the property too narrow? These factors will help ensure that all attendees can move freely around the entire venue during your event so everyone stays safe and happy throughout their stay.
  • Environmental Considerations
    Take into account how much disruption the noise level from your event may cause to nearby residences and any potential ecological risks associated with large numbers of people being on site. When looking at ranches, ensure that they have sufficient access to water resources and waste management facilities if needed, along with any other necessary environmental certifications that may be required depending on the type of function being held.

How to Make Ranch Events Better

  • Use Natural Resources
    One of the advantages of hosting any occasion at a ranch is the access it provides to natural resources. Take advantage of that by incorporating greenery and woodsy elements into your decorations. Consider creating flower bouquets with wildflowers picked from the ranch or using branches as centerpieces on tables.

  • Plan Suitable Activities
    Choose activities that cater to guests of all ages and abilities, while upholding the environment of the ranch itself. Consider hosting hay rides or horseback riding lessons for more adventurous guests. Games like horseshoes can also be great fun while keeping everyone’s feet firmly on the ground. If the occasion calls for it, organize an educational session where guests learn about how a ranch operates, including feeding the animals.

  • Make Use of Available Facilities
    Reap the benefits of a ranch by taking advantage of its open green spaces, picnic tables, barns or stables, ponds or lakes (for swimming and fishing), and animals such as horses or cows for petting zoos and more! Exploring these options can contribute to creating a stand-out function while offering guests unforgettable experiences.

  • Serve Ranch-Inspired Foods
    Give guests unique offerings that tie in with nature's bounty and the theme of the occasion. Serve dishes made with ingredients grown at local farms and ranches around the area or offer themed desserts like homemade pies or cupcakes topped with cowboy hats made out of fondant or marzipan.

  • Be Mindful of Nature
    Hosting an event at a ranch requires respect for both man-made structures and natural resources alike, so be sure to leave no trace behind you! Remind your guests to take their trash with them upon leaving and keep any fires contained within designated areas if used at all. Additionally, take measures to protect the soil on the ground from erosion caused by vehicles crossing wet terrain during heavy rains or snowfall!
