Welcome to The Conrad Botzum Farmstead.
Right up in the banner at the top of this page it says, ‘Come back to the country!’ and we really mean it. Can you believe it? We have 25 acres of beautiful farmscape, and we’re only 15 minutes from downtown Akron, and 40 minutes from downtown Cleveland. If you want to host an event…wedding, reception, reunion, birthday party, corporate meeting…and you’ve had enough of the country club/banquet hall scene, The Botzum Farmstead is the place for you. Please check out our Photos page and take a walk around the Farmstead. In 2011 we hosted 37 wedding/receptions and 11 other events. We are about to wrap up 2012 with 39 weddings & receptions…and we’re already over half booked for 2013, and working on 2014! And we’re having so much fun. Join us!
The Botzum Farmstead seeks to be a very family friendly facility, so our website, especially the things we communicate to you will have a ‘down home’ feel. We want our facility to be warm and inviting and we hope the same for the website.
Our Summer Concert Series ‘Music at the Farmstead’ got so popular that it moved to a larger venue for a larger audiance…Cuyahoga Valley National Park. You can read more information on our Events page.
The new ‘permanent’ toilet facilities are up and functioning on the property. The handicapped accessible toilets and lavs are a welcome addition to the farmstead. There are two identical rooms each with a vanity, electric lights:), hot and cold running water in the lavs, flush toilets, mirrors made out of old window sashes and old barn wood ceilings. You have to see them to appreciate. We know all of our brides and quests do!
Check back with us often and please drop us an email, through the website, with questions or comments.
Check out the Music @ The Farmstead page for our upcoming music events.
Candle lit tables for a lovely summer wedding reception.
A 2002 view of the Botzum Farmstead from the air. The 1898 Bank Barn and Canopy Covered Deck is to the right with the 1885 Sweitzer Barn just right of the center. Our circa 1890 Machine Shed is below the barns. To the left of center is the ‘turn-of-the-century’ milk house. Running diagonally across the top are the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad tracks. The scenic North Meadow is at the bottom with the South Meadow behind the Barns.
Beautiful autumn leaves behind the 1898 Bank Barn.
