Although newly built, “The BARN” at MARTIN FARMS naturally takes its place within the surrounding rustic 85 acres which make up the Martin’s farming and ranching home. This 3000 sq.ft. farm structure consists of exterior walls covered in corrugated metal, and interior walls covered with a combination of metal and reclaimed wood. Ceiling fans are suspended from individually constructed trusses, which support our 26 feet high roof. “Lighter” trees, harvested from nearby woods, are the main support poles for “The BARN”. Each “lighter” pole is individual in character, bringing a central rustic theme to the entire barn. The alleyway floor is concrete, and the ‘wing’ floors are wooden. Each bathroom has an area designated as a dressing room (if needed) or as a sitting room. Distressed copper pails and pump-handle faucets add a distinct ‘country’ appeal. Guests may enter “The BARN” through large double barn doors situated at the front and rear of the building. Seating accommodations within “The BARN” range from 150 to 200 guests, depending on choice of tables and set up. Parking is plentiful with the Ceremony Site visible when guests arrive. The Ceremony Site is located approximately 200 feet south of “The BARN” in the hayfield. The wedding ‘altar’ is decorated with a wooden cross, an arch made from trees, branches, and grapevines, and a ‘backdrop’ which consists of a 10-acre pond, the remaining 85 acres of pasture land, and occasionally, cows passing by. The entire BARN site is surrounded by nature, including the Ocala National Forest to the north.
