What does it look like at night?

I get asked this question a lot. I thought that I would try my skill with taking night pictures and had some success. I took these pictures tonight (Dec.5th) around 8:30.

Christmas parties

During the month of December we are busy with a lot of Christmas parties. Tonight the company "Muddy Boys" had a party in the barn. They had a dinner followed by a dance. They really know how to have a good time!

The barn is getting a makeover

This month we closed our doors to give some TLC to the barn. We are installing a slate floor, bigger windows, wood beams and columns, and applying a fresh coat of paint. Our next event is on November 21st, and we are ahead of schedule and excited to open our doors again. Here is a sneak peak of what is occurring right now.

The new floor installed

The columns are ready for wood beams

The slate floor. Its dirty, but gives you an idea on the size and color

We carved through the rock to install larger windows

It has been a busy year

We are constantly improving. This past year was no exception to the previous.

Last spring we completed an addition on the south side of the barn. This allowed more space and light into the main reception hall.

Last spring we also installed a greenhouse in the north/west corner of the barn garden.

This spring we added covered porches over the North and East entrances and also put in a stamped concrete sidewalk.

This summer we completed the entrance into the garden area. I think it came out beautifully! Great job Matt!

We recently completed the parking lot entrance.

Back in the begining...

Wadley Farms began about 15 years ago, officially about 8 years ago. The first wedding reception we hosted was in our barn. A relative asked if they could have their wedding reception in our barn, "Okay, let us pull out the tractor and rearrange the hay". It has evolved from that moment to what it is today.

My family bought the family farm in 1988 and has been remodeling, constructing, and creating ever since.

This is what the family home looked like when we moved in

This is the about where the parking lot driveway is now

The Railroad house. This was once a railroad station and also at one time served as a schoolhouse. It was moved in from Toplift Utah
