Rustic Weddings & Receptions on a Working Farm
Every Love Story Is
Carlee Farm is nestled on a 53 acre working farm located in Granville County. Carlee Farm has so much to offer as your venue of choice for weddings or receptions. This rustic working farm wedding venue is secluded away from the hustle and bustle of highways and public view which gives you privacy for your special wedding day.
The rustic barn offers and allows plenty of room for guests as well as a dance floor where you can dance the night away! For those who are interested in a blank canvass to DIY for a wedding or reception, Carlee Farm is the place to be! Never-mind the hay, tools or feed in the barn, it becomes a part of your decor!
As you begin to meander through the woods along a paved stone walkway, you come to a beautiful covered bridge which leads to a field that is perfect for any sort of ceremony with a covered altar and lush green fields. Within the woods, there are hiking trails that are perfect for hayrides or long walks. There are also places in the woods that would be perfect for small intimate receptions in the great outdoors! All efforts to maintain this as a working farm and educate others about the importance of farming is our main goal.
Carlee Farm has just recently became members of North Carolina’s Department of Agri-tourism.

What Do People Have To Say…
What a beautiful venue hidden off of a dirt road. Our friends arranged for a last minute wedding due to weather and said that Gena (the owner) was AWESOME! – K. Kaid
The farm is absolutely breathtaking and is an event planner’s dream venue. As a former professional meeting and event planner for a large pharmaceutical company in RTP, Carlee farms is the ideal setting to host any wedding, charitable event or corporate function. It’s cozy down home feeling is only matched by the warm southern hospitality of those that own it. A true Southern gem. – A. McGrady
Beautiful, rustic location and fantastic staff who go above and beyond. Just all around an amazing venue.

I cannot say enough about John and Gena, the owners of this beautiful venue, Carlee Farm. It all started with a frantic call from myself (the bride) due to a hurricane (Matthew) that was approaching with the potential to ruin/stop our wedding. We had planned an outdoor event with tents, but due to winds etc, we needed to cancel everything.
Talking with Gena, who was someone I never met gave, me a sense of calm. After a few seconds of tears, her voice was so sweet and she told me “Everything is going to be ok, you can have you wedding here, and we will help you make it everything you want”. Their kindness, passion and care for clients surpasses any venue we visited. We didn’t care about the distance (we live in Apex), working with them was worth it!
They made sure we were happy and comfortable throughout the process. They went above and beyond to save our day on a very short period of time! The venue is beautiful, elegantly rustic with the most wonderful team of people. Even though some of our guest couldn’t venture out in the hurricane, our wedding day was exactly how we pictured it. Get married here, you will be so thankful you did! We didn’t just find a perfect venue to begin our life together, we also made wonderful friends!
Thank you Gena and John, you are wonderful people and I wish there was an option for a higher star rating!!! ~ Tammy and David Carpenter
What an amazing place for a wedding! Just had our wedding and reception here at Carlee Farm and it could not have been more perfect! Gena and her staff were extremely professional, helpful and accommodating. We are so grateful for them participating in making our special day run so smoothly.

The pictures from my niece’s recent wedding were wonderful with Carlee Farm as an amazing backdrop from the wooded altar to the hay strewn fields to the pond and finally the barn itself – thanks for the great memories!
When I got engaged last year, me and my then future mother-in-law went to view Carlee Farm. I was specifically looking for a rustic chic venue that was in the country.
I was scheduled to view another venue that day but as SOON as I stepped into the barn, I fell in love. I instantly knew this was the venue space where I would get married! Throughout the entire planning process, Gena and John were AMAZING. They were so accommodating and made my husband, Derek, and I feel like family.
One of the best things about our reception was being able to eat alone upstairs in private. I am sure all brides can attest that things get so hectic on your wedding day, it is hard to steal away a few moments for you and your new husband. (Let alone find the time for the two of you to eat!) So, I am definitely pleased that Gena had that option for us. I did not understand the value of it until the actual day!
From taking our engagement photos there to the actual wedding day where they executed everything flawlessly, I could not be happier that I chose Carlee Farm for our wedding! I would highly recommend Carlee Farm to anyone seeking a wedding venue.
