Nothing is more beautiful or relaxing than a farm celebration.
At our east Austin location, just eight miles east of downtown, we've hosted weddings, bar mitzvahs, birthday parties and countless celebrations for more than 10 years. Our goal is to host similar events at our River Farm by 2022. (To learn more about our farm, see Better Homes and Gardens magazine, which featured us in its July 2011 issue)
A portion of all wedding payments are used to support our farm-based education efforts.
Many venues limit rentals to 4 hours. At Green Gate Farms, there’s no need to rush. For weddings, you have access to the farm for 12 hours the day of, 6 hours the day prior, and 6 hours the day after. You can even come out before your wedding for engagement photos—feel free to sit on the tractor or feature the antique windmill and 1902 Big Red Barn as a backdrop.

Guests may dine here under the stars or under tents. This long lawn nestled between two lush vegetable fields is where we set up outdoor feasts or dance tents. Seats 200+ guests.
