Event Producer

Event Producer

At Holly Farm, you are our top priority. That’s why we have a dedicated event team from On The Edge of Urban to tend to your needs. We are a working equestrian farm and an animal farm with alpaca, llama, mini ponies, sheep, goats, chickens, a cow and a bee hive at the edge of our 17-acre property AND our On the Edge of Urban team to make sure your experience with us is as you planned.

When you come to Holly Farm you will know you are on a real farm. In the distance below our event barn you will see dozens of horses enjoying time grazing and perhaps some riders in our outdoor area.

We consider our event clients friends for life because once you and your guests experience our hospitality, our beautiful 96-year old historic barn, our fiber farm display room and our animal farm you will return for special occasions throughout the rest of your life. Perhaps it will be a birthday party, riding lessons, team building corporate events, an anniversary, a medieval festival or our private – invite only barn dinner and dance evenings. No matter what the reason, Holly Farm will find a place in your heart and you will return in years to come.

On our farm, we will provide you assistance throughout your event.
