Introducing an Exciting Opportunity for 2021!

From our beginnings at Shaggy Dog Farm, Al and I knew that we only wanted to take on 4 or 5 events each year. That number allows us to stay fresh and focused on each event and allows us to continue to enjoy our “semi-retired” lifestyle. But, as we continued to grow and learn about the farm and the community, we soon realized that the demand for this beautiful venue is very high and that we reached capacity very quickly. It also became clear that it was a shame to let this beautiful barn sit empty for so much of the season.

So, we are very excited to announce a new opportunity that will allow many more families to share life’s special moments at Shaggy Dog Farm. We have teamed up with Michelle Rudeen to open up several more weekends each season! While Al and I will continue to manage a limited number of events, Michelle will be an exclusive vendor for additional events. As previous owner of Shaggy Dog Farm (formerly Freehands Farm) Michelle brings extensive knowledge, long experience and continuing passion to managing successful events at the farm. Michelle and her crew will offer full-service packages to include our wonderful venue, event coordinating, all your catering needs and flowers by In-Depth Design. She offers a truly full service wedding experience at Shaggy Dog Farm.

We are all very excited about these new additions  and cannot wait to share them with you. Please continue to contact Shaggy Dog Farm through our website or call us directly at 218-760-2716 or you can contact Michelle at 715-563-0323. Please help us spread the word. Like us on Facebook and share our post. We are very much looking forward to the 2021 season.

Shaggy Dog Farm A Place where EVEN MORE Memories are Made!
