Built in 1903, the Barn Lives on...

In 2007 Ty & Kay Meyer began the adventure of making it a wedding venue. Take a look at the history, dedication, and love the barn hold in it's century old timber frames.

Kay & Ty Meyer
Ty and I moved back home to the Meyer Farm and Ranch in 2007 with a dream to transform the family barn and homestead into a country event venue. Our kids Jackson and Maggie were just 5 and 3 years old at the time and didn’t know we were going to embark on this new adventure. We had our landscaping plans, funds saved up, and passion to make this a reality. We broke ground in May with our first festival event planned for August. We made it to our first event which marked a major milestone and over the years we’ve held many more memorable and special events here. Our family is still very involved with the farm, our daughter Maggie is our main grounds keeper, with help from Ty, Jackson, me, and Ty’s parents Barb and Greg. We help with preparing for the weddings and are blessed to have wonderful wedding coordinators that help make the day perfect. After college we moved to many places in Washington and California, and everytime we came home to visit we realized what a special place this was. We love raising our kids in the same community we were raised, surrounded by family and friends. We welcome you to our family farm and hope you enjoy the peacefulness and a little slice of country life.

Red Barn Farms
Growing up I was told to find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life. I did just that and became a mom, teacher, and event coordinator. My husband Cory and I love the outdoors, drives on dirt roads, camping and raising our sons Tyler & Chase. It is a blessing to be apart of the Red Barn Farms family and helping couples make their wedding dreams come true!
While I initially moved to Moscow in 2016 to attend the University of Idaho to get my bachelor's degree in marketing entrepreneurship, I quickly fell in love with the community beyond the campus. I have enjoyed finding my sense of home on the palouse particularly within the hospitality scene, working at The Black Cypress since 2018. On a day off you can likely find me baking bread, in the pottery studio, or starting some diy project around the house. I love any project that lets me organize and create! Being a part of the wedding industry has provided an opportunity to fuel both of those passions and share so many special moments with engaged couples and their families. I am thrilled to get to work with the Red Barn Farms team in the season ahead!
