It started with dear friends who wanted to get married at our farm, followed closely by our beautiful daughter who's dream it was to have a barn wedding: suddenly Heart of Rock Farm was hosting weddings.
With over 20 years in the wedding industry (Lisas is a deejay and Phil is an officiant), the transition to hosting a venue came easily.
Our reception hall in the old Onion Barn includes a 28' x 55' dance floor with mirror ball, seating for 100-150 (depending on the season), a 10-foot bar with kegerator & wine refrigerators, an overhead display stage for decorating, prep space for catered-in meals, and dressing rooms for the bride and groom.
The outdoor area includes a beautiful wedding pavilion with rustic bench seating, a fire pit surrounded by benches, horseshoe pits & plenty of space for lawn games, a '51 flat bed hay truck, plus some of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see.
We're recently completed a project we've been dreaming of since we opened our doors: two 8-ft glass french doors open onto a huge deck facing Mt. Hood. The view is beautiful and the deck is a wonderful place to relax and visit with friends.
We offer several optional house services to make your planning journey simpler, including DJ, catering, officiant, and day-of support; plus we have relationships with some amazing local wedding vendors that we're happy to recommend.
The farm is perfect for indoor & outdoor weddings, showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, potlucks, birthdays, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, celebrations of life, and almost any other event you can think of.
Close to Portland, Tigard, Sherwood, Newberg, & Tualatin; and only about 45 minutes from McMinnville, Salem, Hillsboro and Vancouver.

The view of the mountain is spectacular! The location is pretty, unique, and private. We're surrounded on three sides by the wildlife refuge, with a filbert orchard on the remaining side. (Late-night music isn't a problem...the ducks don't seem to mind!)
Our "country dirt-road" driveway is almost a quarter-mile long. Once you're here, it feels like you're way out in the country, but we're actually just outside the Sherwood city limits. To the East we have a beautiful territorial view of Mt. Hood. In the winter, the wetlands flood and the water comes nearly to our property line. It's beautiful...like living on a lake. The ducks and geese are our only neighbors, and there are plenty of them.
The property is easy to get to. It's right off Highway 99W, about halfway between Tigard and Newberg. In-and-out access is easy, with plenty of parking. We use lighted signs at night to help guests find their way.
The Onion Barn is a beautiful place to host an indoor wedding or other event of around 100-120 guests, any time of year. Late spring through early fall, the outdoor area is a wonderful place for outdoor ceremonies, group activites, picnics, games, and just relaxing. Our summertime capacity is 150 people.
Our prices are really reasonable, with a lot of inclusions. We offer optional in-house DJ, day-of coordination and officiant services, and we also have a photobooth with props available. Think "package dea!" Our house caterer, Flour Power Catering, offeres special rates for Heart of Rock Farm clients.
