Pick The Perfect Spot

Cherry Basket Farm is an iconic wedding and event venue on the Leelanau Peninsula in northern Michigan. The 120-year-old farm is located on M-22 between Suttons Bay and Northport, just 30 minutes north of Traverse City. The ten-acre property has been restored specifically for hosting events and is exclusively yours during your celebration.

The centerpiece of the farm is the white, gambrel roofed two-story timber-framed barn – its stunning vaulted interior has hosted barn dances, concerts, wedding receptions and ceremonies for years. Also on site are open lawns, gardens, paths to the spring-fed pond, the converted former farm stand, accessible restrooms and room for limited parking.

Explore The Venue

Reverberating with northern Michigan’s proud heritage of cherry production, the barn’s rooftop cupola, gorgeous restored floors and vintage signs capture the charm of a time past, while also featuring modern updates.

The farm’s original barn offers classic, stone-inspired rustic charm that links our central courtyard to the Main Lawn, fields and orchards beyond.  An internal stairwell connects this atmospheric space with the Upper Barn above.

Our flat, grassy tenting site is the ideal location for dinner, enabling three distinct gathering spaces to be seamlessly connected regardless of weather - an invitation to flawless event design.

Nestled in the cool, shady hub of the farm, our tree-lined lawn offers a green backdrop for wedding ceremonies and al fresco dining.
