Polen Farm, a beautiful and historic 19th century farmhouse and barn situated on 15 picturesque acres at 5099 Bigger Road, is a favorite with area residents for weddings, receptions, meetings, luncheons, small conferences, retreats, reunions and other social affairs.
Polen Farm is operated by the Kettering Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department. Groups may rent portions of the farm or the entire facility, depending on the number of people involved and the type of event. Ample parking is available.
The Polen Farm house includes a roomy living room, dining room, sun porch, and banquet room. A seasonal tent covers a large patio providing the flexibility of an indoor or outdoor event. These features make the Polen Farm House the perfect place for a small, intimate gathering or a slightly larger event, of up to 130 people.
Unequaled in the community is the Polen Farm Barn. Through renovation, the barn has become an ideal setting for craft shows, company picnics, family reunions and wedding receptions. The lower level, which features a small service kitchen, will accommodate up to 125 people and is usable year-round. The upper level is roomy enough for as many as 175 people. Groups over 300 may want to reserve the entire Polen Farm facility. Tables, chairs and use of the Gazebo are included in all rental prices.
The grounds around the farmhouse and barn have been preserved to a large extent in their natural condition. Highlights include a formal garden patio and a Gazebo perfect for outdoor weddings and small musicals. When the facility or grounds are not reserved for a private renter, Polen Farm’s picnic areas are available for public use as well.
