About Us

Brief History of the Farm

The farm has been a work in progress since 1986, made available in late 2016, the event barn and lake

encompass six acres as you drive on a forty-acre farm located at460 Logging Road, Ohatchee, AL 36271.

We offer indoor and outdoor events and rental of the property entitles you to both for the

event period. The lake is stocked with koi fish. Future plans are to construct a wooden bridge over the

lake.

 

Located at the end of a county road, B & R Farms is a working farm which concentrates on exhibition

poultry. Currently we have rabbits, geese, guineas, chickens, quail, doves and pigeons. We are not just a

building with a farm name. If you enjoy farm sounds, we can accommodate. In addition to the event

building we can provide live doves for the event and a white bird release is also available.

Sitting around the farm is antique horse drawn equipment and several antique tractors are also on the

farm. Just below the event barn is a working sawmill which was used to cut all the wood that is inside

the barn. Tell your guests to come early and enjoy touring a working farm.

Cindy Genz, Your Event Host

I have been planning parties and weddings for friends and family as long as I can remember. I love the

fun of taking the rustic setting, like an old barn, and transforming it in to the magical setting for your

special day. If you can dream it, I can help you make it come true. I love making a magical, whimsical,

fairy tales come true. At B & R Farm Weddings & Events, we are here to help you in any way to make

your wedding, reception or special event as magical as you want it to be. I would love to show you our

event barn and the surrounding grounds. Give me a call today and we can get started on planning for

your big day.

The Venue

Are you planning an indoor event? If so this 8,000-square foot space has countless options. The open

floor area is ideal for tables and chairs to be arranged to best accommodate your event. On the right as

you walk in is a serving area, where setting up a reception is ideal.

Remember when the day ends and your personal items are removed we will clean up the rest.

The General Store

At B & R Farm Weddings & Events, we have a unique feature inside our Barn. As you walk into the west

end of the barn, you are greeted with the view of the General Store, the front porch sets the stage for a

real country theme. Just imagine the porch decorated with lights, flowers and greenery for a spring or

summer wedding, with the store front serving as your backdrop. Or, the large windows that look into

the store; how beautiful it would look to have trees of lights in each window with the glow of the lights

setting the perfect back drop for your fall or winter wedding.

The General Store is not just a “front porch” feature; there is so much more to it. Once you go inside

you will see a collection of small cast iron farm engines, complete with a period cash register, just like

you would expect to find in an old general store and other collectibles that Bryant and Renee have

acquired over the years. There are two public restrooms inside. The store can be used for many things

during your event such as a refreshment station for your guests as they arrive. Or the groom and

groomsman can use this as a place to gather before the big event. There are many different ways to use

this unique area of the barn.

Remember when the day ends and your personal items are removed we will clean up the rest.

Bridal Dressing Room

Upstairs, above the general store, we have two private rooms for the bride and the bridal party. One

room is furnished with antique dressing tables and mirrors. The second room has a full bathroom and

two built-in bunk beds. These two rooms serve as a nice little hideaway for you to relax and have

refreshments with your bridal party before the big event.

Remember when the day ends and your personal items are removed we will clean up the rest.
