Letter of Agreement for the Use of Oakland Green Farm (Weddings)

1. Rental fees are based on an event duration of eight hours. Additional time is allowed for set-up, as mutually agreed upon.

During the hours of the event, use includes the grounds, the log house (upstairs and downstairs) and the first floor of the main house, including the kitchen. The second floor private quarters are not open.

2. A deposit must accompany the signed letter of agreement. The deposit will be refunded if the event is cancelled within 90 days of its occurrence.

3. The organization or individual using the property must engage a caterer who should be in contact with Oakland Green 90 days prior to the event to go over arrangements.

4. The caterer will provide all personnel, food, drinks, linens, coat racks, tableware, flowers, extra furniture, etc. as needed. We provide protective pads to be used under linens. Adequate personnel for setting up, taking down, and moving furniture shall be provided by the caterer and supervised by Oakland Green Farm personnel. No furniture or objects belonging to Oakland Green Farm may be moved without the approval of the owners. The caterer or the contract organization/individual should also supply suitable trash receptacles and must remove all trash and empty bottles/containers after the event. We must charge $100 if this is overlooked.

NOTE TO BARTENDER: Please do not empty liquid onto grass — it kills! It would be appreciated if liquid could be emptied into a pail or bucket and then disposed of at the driveway (where there is gravel to absorb).

5. A family member of Oakland Green Farm will be present to supervise the main house during the event, to answer questions of historical nature, etc.

6. Amplified music is permitted until 11:00 p.m. A dance floor may be rented only if set up the day before and removed the day after the event because of damage to the grass. We regrettably cannot permit dancing in the house.

7. SMOKING IS PROHIBITED IN THE HOUSE. Smoking areas outside will be well marked.

8. Please throw grass seed at weddings as we do not allow rice or confetti.



Mo! Get out of the flowers!
