Smoking & Fire
The barn is made out of wood. Wood burns. It is crucially important to not have any flame or fire source in the barn during your event. This includes smoking
As such we do not allow candles, smoking, firewood or any other source of fire in the barn or within 20 feet of the barn.
There is a smoking area marked between the barn and the red garage. There are metal bins present for butts. Considerate smoking is permitted near the fire pits on the property and butts can be disposed of there.
There are fire pits on the property that maybe used based on arrangements made prior to your event.
The kitchen area in the Food Service Area features a fridge, a freezer, a double sink and faucet, and a stove with an induction cooktop. It is not a commercial kitchen. Food is expected to be brought pre-cooked or cooked on sight with caterers approved equipment.
The induction cooktop will only work with the pots and pan provided on the shelves.
Garbage, Recycling, & Organic Waste
Garbage, Recycling and Organic Waste can be left on the property for disposal, but it is important that it is contained in an organized way by yourself or your caterers. We provide garbage bins and bag, blue bins for recycling, grey bins for alcohol (cans and bottles) and green bins for organic waste.
It is critical that the waste be sorted into its proper place. The green bin must only contain food; no paper or other garbage. The Blue bin must only contain recyleable materials; clean paper and plastics. Other materials should go in the garbage bins. There are additional large garbage bags under the kitchen sink if needed.
