Sinkland Farms: Elegant and Eclectic, with the Rustic Charm of a Working Farm
By Rita Pike
Sinkland Farms provides guests with an experience so unique that your guests will be talking about it for years. The landmark venue in southwest Virginia offers an extraordinary setting for weddings and other events with unmatched service and experience like none other.
Sinkland Farms was originally established as a dairy farm, receiving accolades for best practices in farming over many years. After the death of her husband, Susan Sink transformed the property to agritourism with a focus on weddings, events, and festivals. Since this conversion, the farm has received recognition and awards, including “best farm to visit,” a “top 10 epic wedding venue” in Virginia, and “the best pumpkin festival” in Virginia. Susan is also a sought-after speaker on agritourism.
The 125-acre working farm, complete with farm animals, pumpkin fields, and corn mazes, welcomes guests with vibrant gardens and a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains from multiple vistas. The lovingly tended, authentic farm is ideal for anyone seeking a rustic, immersive experience and a magical wedding.
The farm, nestled in New River Valley, is reminiscent of the French Provençal countryside with its rolling hills, verdant meadows, and gardens. Everywhere you go on the farm, another photo opportunity awaits; from the silo structure often chosen for the “first look” to the ceremony lawn and adjoining patios.
At the center of the farm, the stunning 5,000 square foot, farm-built barn affords couples a gorgeous setting for their celebrations. “With its original pitched roof, large dramatic doors, and hip vintage-inspired bar, every detail of the barn has been carefully considered.” The ceremony space and Event Barn have an adjoining terrace that can host hundreds for a larger celebration. A recently added, expansive white pergola on the terrace invites guests into comfort for socializing and celebrating.
“Our terrace is an ideal space for a cocktail hour, where your guests can look out to the lush natural landscape while enjoying libations. To the south, the barn doors open onto a beautifully manicured lawn, a firepit which can also host a seated, al fresco farm-to-table meal. All Idyllic, sophisticated, and sublime, Sinkland Farms is a perfect venue for any wedding, special event, or corporate celebration.”
Another sweet touch from the farm’s original roots is the old dairy parlor that’s been renovated, primarily serving now as a “first night of the honeymoon” suite or Friday night space for bridesmaids before the big day and Saturday morning preparation room.
For Sinkland Farms owner and staff, weddings are “commemorations of love and family.” The Farms offer many spaces for festivities, like the Tuscan Garden, the Manor House, game areas, and elegant overnight accommodations for the wedding party. The facilities and grounds are centrally located and provide vistas with both mountain and water views.
