The Orchard Wedding Venue:
Beautiful, Serene, Unique, Romantic, Exclusive, Delicious and Fun

The Kuipers family invites you to consider their orchard as an amazing backdrop for your wedding or special occasion. This working farm is over 230 acres of diverse crops with the apple orchard nestled in rolling hills left by the glaciers long ago. Spectacular views not commonly found in this area make for a one-of-a-kind gathering place for your orchard wedding.

Your wedding guests can relax on the long front porch taking in the picturesque view, enjoy lawn games or a train ride on a summer evening and taste the flavors of our delicious farmstead cuisine in the comfort of the Orchard Barn. The serene venue is perfect for a ceremony and reception that will make a statement about the special couple that chooses it. Amazing wedding photo opportunities will help to create the lasting wedding memories you’re dreaming of.

The farm and orchard is located in beautiful Maple Park Illinois just 12 minutes from Interstate 88 and many hotels and other accommodations – even though it feels like you are far away from it all.

In addition to hosting your Kuiper’s Family Farm Wedding, our orchard is also a perfect location for class reunions, corporate mixers, family celebrations and community events. The farm has many additional activities to help you create a fun and unique experience to charm your guests.
