Facilities & Grounds
Bellwether Farm is a unique and affordable option for your next gathering. The center offers brand new facilities featuring a green technology, renewable energy, and water reclamation systems.
We worked with Ohio Valley Barn Salvage to repurpose a 40' x 64' barn built in 1863 into a place to hold worship services from the late spring to the early fall. However, because the seats are moveable, it makes a great place for meetings and other events — including dances. The barn seats over 100 people, and the wall of windows along the northwest side overlooks the bluff down to the swimming pond for a beautiful view.
