The Barn at Walker Homestead
THE BARN AT WALKER HOMESTEAD is home to exquisite events all year round. This newly constructed venue sits among the picturesque rolling hills of eastern Iowa farms. With distinct and unforgettable views throughout every season, this venue provides a unique setting no matter the time of year. Whether you are hosting an intimate gathering or a grandiose celebration, the sophisticated simplicity, fresh-air, and remarkable views of this working farm and winery will create the perfect backdrop.
This exclusive venue is only allowed twelve weddings a year due to zoning restrictions.
THE GROUNDS on this 85-acre farm are perfect for an outdoor ceremony, some friendly competition with one of many yard games, a stroll through the vines, or a relaxing sit by one of the movable fire pits. You and your guests will have ample space among these rolling pastures for al fresco dining and 3-season lounging. In addition, the barn features five glass doors that open to almost 2,000 square feet of covered patio where you can easily enjoy the open-air freshness of the outdoors.
IN-HOUSE CATERING is provided by our partner, Provender and Chef Chris Grebner. Known for their open-fire cookery, wood-fired pizzas, and warm hospitality, Chris and his team enjoy giving personal attention to each event, ensuring quality of food and service. Sourcing the finest in-season ingredients from the farm on site as well as other regional producers, every menu is custom and highly product driven for an unforgettable dining experience. From a classic buffet to a laid back barbecue to a multi-course seated family-style dinner, each event and menu is curated to your needs.
