A perfect venue for the budget bride!
Celebrate with friends and family on 37 acres of woods, hills, pastures, creeks, and meadows in the heart of Saxapahaw. Cane Creek Farm is a working farm that’s home to pastured pigs, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, geese, guinea hens, and turkeys. Hang out among the hundred year old beech trees, walk along the creek, marry down in the meadow, and party on the hill with a view of the big night sky.
We’re just a few minutes walk from all the action in Saxapahaw. In the wonderfully restored textile mill on the Haw River, you can find:

Please note: This land is our home and home to many animals that we rely on for our livelihood. We have farm dogs and barn cats with important roles on the farm. Please – do not bring pets, do not enter any animal pens, and consider all fences potentially electrified. We live in the loft above the event space, and we’ll be present during your weekend – feeding the animals, tending the farm, and enjoying our home.
