ABOUT HALEY FARM
We opened in 1993. At that time, we operated primarily as a B&B. Over the years, we have expanded the Inn and added jacuzzis and fireplaces in the suites. Our wonderful breakfasts and the lovely rooms make it a memorable experience. We hired innkeepers for a number of years, but have been running it ourselves in the last three years as we transition to a retreat center. We love the idea of helping couples make their special day memorable. In addition to barn weddings, we also conduct health retreats, yoga and exercise classes, and cooking classes.
Q+A WITH HALEY FARM
WHAT IS A HALEY FARM WEDDING?
The Haley Farm wedding is usually a smaller, intimate affair where guests feel at home and everyone has tons of fun. A perfect wedding here is one that meets the couple’s expectations and showcases the natural beauty and relaxing vibes of the farm.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN COMMON WITH YOUR CLIENTS?
All our guests are different. We’ve lived across the country, in big cities and small towns, and can always find common ground with just about anyone . We have attended events of all sizes and share our clients the desire for a beautiful and flawless event. We also love to showcase the farm!
WHAT IS THE HIGHEST COMPLIMENT A COUPLE CAN GIVE YOU?
We love when they say that they feel relaxed and at home here. Who says weddings have to be stressful?
IF YOUR BUSINESS WAS A BEVERAGE, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?
Probably a blackberry mint julep, with mint grown right on the farm. We take something purely Americana like bourbon, and make it upmarket, refined, and just a little fruity!
WHAT TOOL CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
Smartphone. If we are in the kitchen, definitely can’t live without a Vitamix blender.
WHAT MADE ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE EVENTS SO SPECIAL?
Way too hard to choose one event! We love when brides and other guests take advantage of our spa and bridal fitness offerings. That’s when we really shine and can build a relationship prior to the event.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
We’re constantly inspired by the love people have for each other, as well as their friends and families. We’re humbled by the opportunity to play a part in the most special day of our clients’ lives.
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE.
Haley Farm is located on a 65-acre farm featuring lush green fields, organic gardens and grazing horses. Our main event barn is rustic and cozy, while our manor house accommodations are spacious and eclectically decorated with items from across the globe. Overall, the atmosphere is relaxed, natural and pastoral.
WHY SHOULD A COUPLE MARRY IN THE DEEP CREEK AREA?
The Deep Creek area is a beautiful area surrounded by mountains, rolling farmlands, lakes, and streams. There are options for outdoor recreation, dining out and simply spending time in a quiet, relaxed setting. It’s also a great option for guests from D.C., Baltimore, Pittsburgh and surrounding areas, since no air travel is required.
WHO IS YOUR BUSINESS’S STYLE ICON?
Oh tough! We fall somewhere between hunter boots (functional, well-made, and ok with a little dirt) and Burberry (classic, elegant and always stylish).
