Farm Weddings and Events
Over the past few years we have hosted private events and weddings of friends and family on our farm with great success, and we are excited to open our venue to the public for bookings in 2019. We are located in a semi-rural neighborhood in Windham, Maine, just 20 minutes from downtown Portland. If you are interested in learning more about hosting your event at Bumbleroot, please email Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to Bumbleroot
Our farm’s mission is to connect people with the land and food that sustains them. We believe that one of the best ways to accomplish this is to welcome people to our farm to share in the natural beauty of the space and the bounty of fresh, organic produce and flowers that we grow. We work closely with our preferred vendors to provide you and your guests with an unforgettable experience. You will enjoy a true field-to-table meal featuring vegetables produced on our farm, and our floral growers and designers will create stunning arrangements using flowers freshly harvested from our fields. We’re eager to share with you the magic of this vibrant piece of land, and we hope you feel energized and inspired by your time here.
Bumbleroot is a working organic farm and is often bustling with activity. Many of our fields are plowed, planted, and filled with crops, and the rest are rolling pastures. Upon arriving, you’ll notice greenhouses, outbuildings, and tractors that are central to our farm operation. Two families own the farm and live on the property, and our homes are the heart of everything that takes place here. All of this contributes to the character of our space and makes it a unique venue for your event. We hope you feel at home on our farm and enjoy sharing in the beauty and bounty of regenerative agriculture.
When you book your wedding or event at Bumbleroot, you will have exclusive access to space outside of the commercial farming operation. The field behind our homes looks out over the 89 acres of rolling hills and forest that we own. It is a flat, grassy area bordered by a picturesque stone wall and framed by a little building set upon our water cistern. This is the perfect place for a tent of almost any size, or tables can simply be set for dining under the stars. You will also have access to our barn and front yard for cocktail hour or mingling. We have worked with event planners, caterers, photographers, rental companies, and portable restroom companies to host events for anywhere from 20 to 200 people. We would be happy to share details of our process and pricing; please email Melissa at email@example.com if you’d like to learn more.
Bumbleroot Produce and Flowers
We work year-round to grow the highest quality vegetables, herbs and flowers for our community, and your event will highlight all of our home-grown goodness. Bumbleroot events are unique in that they fully incorporate our farm’s offerings; our goal is that the vegetables on your plate and the flowers on your table were all harvested from our fields. We require that your caterers use Bumbleroot produce, and we are happy to provide you with our list of preferred vendors who are familiar with our farm and our philosophy. We also ask that you select from Bumbleroot’s various floral offerings; our flower manager will walk you through the whole process to bring your floral dreams to life. Hosting events on our farm is another step towards making our business an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable venture that is aligned with our values and our goals. We truly appreciate your support of our small family farm.
