Jorgensen Farms is by far the most popular wedding venue in Columbus. This venue is unique because its actually a working certified organic farm. They believe in nurturing the land while educating its visitors about the connection to the gift of food. Jorgensen has 100 acres of property with two distinct areas where you can get married here, Oak Grove with a greenhouse and the Historic Barn. The property is beautiful with lush gardens, natural sun-kissed open fields, and beautiful buildings to host your guests.
History of Jorgensen Farms
The whole purpose of the property was for Val to teach her sons about the joy of growing, cooking and eating organic foods. Val bought and started this farm in 1992 and opened it to events in 2002. What I love about this venue is their underlying message of teaching and providing amazing produce. This belief crosses over to the event space. You can expect your culinary experience here to be exceptional because most of the cuisine that is served, uses produce grown at the farm.
Venue Space: Oak Ridge
By far one of the best spaces at the farm! It’s been very popular for luxurious weddings for the last few years, and it’s one of my favorites! When you rent this space, here’s what you should expect to have access to.
