  • My daughter and son-in-law were married in the winter. The ceremony and reception were held in the same building which is clean and beautiful. It is also full of natural light with all the french doors facing the countryside. It feels like your outside! In fact it was a nice February day that guests stood out on the front porch overlooking the old oak trees. Children were running over to the barn to see the goats. Paul and Kari are so easy to work with and felt like I've known them awhile! They are proud to share in the history of the farm and what they have done to make it a beautiful venue! The granary is where the wedding party and families get ready, it is one of a kind! Almquist Farm has something for everyone!

    Thank you Shelly! We enjoyed the day as well. You had a great group of people and it was fun to get to know them. The brunch wedding was a great idea. People really enjoyed it. We will be recommending it to our couples who are looking to change up the traditional wedding day.

  • We toured quite a few farm/barn wedding venues from minneapolis area to rochester area and we couldn't be happier with our choice of ALMQUIST FARM! Here are the main reasons we choose Almquist: 1. One large main heated/air conditioned reception hall with bathrooms (Thus, event enjoyment would not be weather/temperature dependent.) 2. Family owned and operated 3. Best price around! (We feel other places charged more while offering less.) Once we booked it was nothing but smooth sailing. Paul and Kari were very professional and super responsive to any questions we sent via email. The day of our wedding the place was absolutely beautiful! All the buildings were clean and tidy. The lawn, landscaping, and pathways were perfectly maintained. We could not have asked for a better venue or people to work with! Thank you Almquist Farm for helping make our wedding day so special and enjoyable!

  • Our wedding day took place at Almquist Farm on Friday, September 18th 2020 and we can honestly say that it was PERFECT! Almquist Farm was the first venue that we toured and it was also our last stop. Paul & Kari were so helpful and involved through out the entire planning process. They made it stress free with wonderful vendor recommendations, no hidden fees and their genuine passion and work they personally put into helping their couples create the wedding day they envision at their breathtaking venue. They are extremely timely in responding to any questions and offer great advice for planning. Even in the midst of the current many unknowns and uncertainties of this wild world, they were so easy to work with and did everything they could to create the special day we envisioned. The venue in general including the property, the buildings, and the landscapes are simply and naturally gorgeous and are so well taken care of. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the space, the amenities and the st... Read more

  • We had our incredible & beautiful wedding on September 6th, 2020! 110% + Recommend Almquist Farm for a wedding venue! We needed a new venue last minute due to Covid-19 and Paul & Kari were communicative & open with us from Day 1 of calling and helped us feel calm throughout the process. They always had answers to our questions and we appreciated their kindness & fast responses! The venue reception space, granary, ceremony site, baby goats & bonfire were beautiful, clean, and we received nonstop compliments throughout the day & night! Staff were incredibly kind and helpful and responsive! We appreciated every moment of our wedding day!! If we wish to repeat our wedding cheers in the coming years, we’d love to return to Almquist Farm in Hastings, MN!

  • We can't say enough good things about Paul, Kari and Almquist Farm. Paul and Kari were quick to respond to any questions we had during the planning process. The venue is beautiful and perfect for every part of the wedding day. The granary is a great spot to spend the day getting ready and the ceremony location is unbelievable. We had our wedding during COVID and Paul and Kari were amazing throughout the whole process. We are so thankful we choose the Almquist Farm for our wedding and how they responded to the extra complication of COVID just solidifies our decision. We had a storm rolling in right around the ceremony time and Paul was there to explain all of our options, while also examining the radar the whole time. Paul was as invested in the outcome as our family was, which was amazing to see. We missed the rain and the sun came out for a perfect sunset. Thanks Almquist Farm!

  • My husband and I just got married here & had the most amazing day! We knew we wanted a barn venue & this checked off all of our wants and needs. The moment we toured it we knew it was the perfect place. We received non stop compliments from our guests on how beautiful Almquist is and how much fun everyone was having enjoying the goats, the outside hangout space, and the beautiful barn. The owners were so nice to work with from day one of wedding planning. Their whole family was so wonderful to us! They made all our wedding dreams come true!

  • Almquist Farm made all my wedding dreams come true. Paul and Kari were great to work with, they answered all our questions in a timely manner and were supportive during the pandemic. I loved everything about my wedding day and received a ton of compliments on how beautiful the venue was and how nicely everything was done.

    Thank you Mary! We really appreciate the way you and Tyler handled the uncertainty of the various government restrictions leading up to your wedding day. You were patient and thoughtful and in the end it paid off as you were able to have a beautiful wedding day with a large group on your original date. Best wishes to both of you for a long and happy life together!

  • Almquist Farm was the perfect place for our wedding! Everything inside and out is so beautiful and well maintained. We got so many compliments on what a beautiful venue and location it is. Paul and Kari are so genuinely nice and easy to work with. They made sure we had everything we needed and all the answers we needed before and during the big day. We fell in love with Almquist instantly and couldn't imagine a more perfect place for our wedding. We would absolutely recommend having a wedding at Almquist Farm. Our day was beyond perfect!

  • I cannot recommend Almquist Farm enough. The venue is absolutely beautiful, from the gorgeous ceremony spot to the reception barn - it is seriously the prettiest space. More than being a breathtaking property, the owners, Paul and Kari, are the kindest, most accommodating people. They were always warm and welcoming, prompt in responding to calls/emails, and encouraged us through planning our wedding amidst COVID. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was the most perfect day! We could not be more grateful for them and our decision to book at Almquist Farm.

  • My husband and I had our wedding reception here in February and it was an absolute dream. Owners Paul and Kari were fantastic to work with and answered any questions we had promptly and professionally. A few weeks before the wedding we went to tour the grounds and walk through the day of schedule with Paul and Kari. They discussed many details to consider and took thorough notes on our day of plan to ensure we were all on the same page. Amazing couple, amazing venue. Definitely recommend to anyone considering Almquist Farm.

  • Paul and Kari were an absolute dream to work with. They were so quick and responsive to e-mails and phone calls and made the whole process of planning our ceremony and reception easy. They were incredibly flexible with us the morning of our wedding, as we had hoped to have an outdoor ceremony, but unfortunately it began to snow with a wind chill in the 20s mid October. We waited until the last possible minute to decide to have our reception indoors and it still turned out just as beautiful as we had imagined. We ended up going back to our venue the morning after to grab some items we forgot and we ran back in to Paul, and honestly talking with him felt like talking with a good friend He was so genuinely appreciative we had chosen Almquist for our wedding and had such personal and kind things to say to my husband and I about our wedding. The getting ready, ceremony and reception spaces are simply breathtaking, and our guests fell head over heels for the tiny goats they had. I highly rec... Read more

  • It was so nice being able to have the entire event in one location instead of getting dressed, then driving to the ceremony, then shuttling to the reception. Having the entire wedding party get ready in the granary was a lot of fun. You can take a shower, have lunch, listen to music and shoot some pool then walk right outside for photos. Also, we went back to the granary for a private champagne toast after the ceremony. There are so many opportunities for great photo backdrops in every direction, and the grounds are very well maintained. Approved vendor list has plenty of options for catering to accommodate a wide range of tastes and budgets. A/V equipment provided for the ceremony worked out great. We loved the wooden tables and chairs provided for the reception- besides a table runner we didn’t even decorate with linens and decided to show off the wood instead. Another point to note is that the venue can absolutely handle larger groups, but also caters nicely to smaller part... Read more

  • Almquist farm is so beautiful and under such great care of Paul and Kari. We didn't need to do much decoration for all guests to appreciate the views. Paul and Kari also have a great selection for recommended vendors, do talk to them if you have any questions regarding any of the vendor on the lists, they give great advice based on your needs. Both me and my husband are so glad we could host our wedding there.

  • We had a very large wedding reception here and Paul and Kari were incredibly helpful!! We had such an easy time planning because they were always so responsive and ready to help! This venue is very beautiful. Our photos and our guests' photos turned out great as this venue is set up so beautifully. The drinks the bar made were also amazing, our guests had so many positive things to say about the way the drinks were made and the service they received when ordering. Overall, we had an absolutely perfect day all thanks to Paul and Kari!!
