Red Tail Farm is a wedding venue which perfectly embodies the ‘city meets the countryside’ atmosphere’ giving couples that unforgettable and romantic feel on their special day. Located on an island between Goshen’s Millrace Canal and the Elkhart River,  the farm is on the center of a magnificently renovated 1935 English three-bay threshing barn that’s been updated with up-to-date amenities. This place offers modern convenience while giving off that tranquil and rustic vibe of the countryside. It is also surrounded by lush pastureland and forest with an intimate outdoor ceremony grove and a grassy lawn that will be ideal for games and bonfires.

Red Tail Farm was the most perfect wedding venue for us! As you cross over the one car bridge to get to the venue you would NEVER believe you’re in downtown Goshen. The beautiful twinkle lights throughout the barn, the huge bonfire and outdoor entertaining space, and the circular grove for a private wedding is an ideal venue for those who want an entirely magical experience! We received soo many compliments about the location of our venue. We’re so thankful for Anna, Adam, and Joni. They made every part of scheduling and rescheduling due to the pandemic A BREEZE. Highly recommend RTF!

LOOK NO FURTHER! This venue is perfect for an outdoor wedding! We did the simple Sunday package, and it turned out beautifully. Anna, Adam, and Joni all went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They went above and beyond to help us set up exactly the way we wanted. They are positive and professional, and are willing to work with you to ensure you have a perfect wedding within your price range and time frame. It’s family owned and operated, and unlike other venues they care more about your special day than draining your wallet. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend Red Tail Farm.
