Planet Goat is pleased to offer wedding celebrations in our historic barn and on our farm grounds.
Drs. Lauren and Ed Ruddell live on the property and offer couples the opportunity to have memorable weddings in an historic, scenic, and serene rustic setting. Our barn is part of Utah history (the Bush Ranch) and is located on the Lincoln Highway. From our 25 acres, the view to the north is largely unobstructed by buildings. The Stansbury and Onaqui Ranges to the west and Oquirrhs to the east create a skyline that frames our farm. On many evenings the only sounds to be heard are cattle lowing and the occasional coyote howl.
The property is only 19 miles away from Tooele and 55 miles from Salt Lake City. The distance from Salt Lake City blesses us with clear air and sparkling night skies where the Milky Way and numerous constellations are easily viewed. During the day, horses and goats complete the country feel. Our farm animals are very special and very friendly. Animal lovers as well as history buffs will find much which appeals to the heart and mind.
The grounds are sustainably managed and the vegetable, flower, and herb gardens are organic. The barn has been carefully restored and contains a small store/warming kitchen, dance floor, and picnic tables. In case of inclement weather, the barn can easily accommodate wedding party and guests in comfort. More picnic tables are available in the lawn area just behind the house and barn. The views from that area include not only the mountains, pastures, and livestock of the area, but are on major migratory bird flyways. For closer bird watching, aviaries with exotic birds are adjacent to seating areas north of the main lawn. Evening ceremonies can include a campfire if desired. Hayrides (pulled by horse and not tractor) are also available, weather permitting. We are the perfect venue for intimate gatherings, accomodating 30 guests inside the barn and up to 50 on the grounds.
We are glad to welcome you to our farm and are ready to accommodate you in any way that we can. We welcome all folks from all religions/philosophies and walks of life. From Salt Lake City to Provo, we are just about the most unique, affordable and friendly country venue around. If a restful setting and a glimpse of old Utah during your celebration of love appeals to you, then please consider us for your ceremony and reception.
