History of Our Farm
According to county records, the farmhouse located on the grounds at The Barn at Kent Farms was built in 1912. The farmhouse has seen several families and many visitors over the years with locals recalling childhood stories of visiting and playing at the farm. It has gone through several renovations by the previous families over the years including additions using wood from an old nearby schoolhouse. The latest renovations done by Jim and Tammy Kent have added a bathroom and updated all of the amenities but preserved the country charm of the farmhouse.

How our Barn Venue and Farmhouse Started
Jim and Tammy Kent hosted weddings for two of their three sons and encountered the many challenges of an all-in-one day wedding event, they envisioned the dream of offering the opportunity for couples to enjoy their special occasion over a few days on the farm. And so began the reality of The Barn at Kent Farms. They focused on an affordable venue that could be used and loved by the entire community and surrounding areas.
In 2018, The Kent’s fell in love with the history and charm of the Century-old farm with farmhouse and saw that the location would be perfect with its magnificent views of the SW Iowa countryside and majestic sunsets. They wanted to keep the rustic feel but include modern conveniences, so they sought out AM Building to make their dream into reality. The Farmhouse and each building has been specifically updated to reflect and accommodate everyone for a perfect event while still offering affordability.
The Barn at Kent Farms hosted their first wedding in 2019 and have continued to make additions to benefit each client along with functional upgrades. The property is managed and maintained by several family members. The Kent’s attribute their success to their strong faith and family.
Today, The Kent’s goal is to still provide a beautiful but affordable venue for the entire community so their pricing is simple with a 3 Day Wedding Package that is all inclusive use of the entire property and no added charges.
