We are a GA based
The Farmhouse at 30542 is a farm wedding and event venue owned and operated by Roger and Cathy Little. Roger is a Hall County native and has grown up living in Flowery Branch on the 70 acre farm. He was a Johnson High School graduate in 1974, and then went on to help his father, Lloyd, in the family business. Little-Woodall Supply was a wholesale distributer of farm and veterinarian supplies. They served independent farm stores in the tri-state area for 44 years.
In 1987, Cathy and Roger met on a cross country bicycle ride to raise funds for the American Lung Association. They married the next year and made their home on the family farm. Being a city girl from Dalton, GA, and then Atlanta, Cathy had a lot to learn about country living.
Cathy is an Auburn University graduate in graphic design has held many job titles to gain the experience needed to develop a farm wedding venue. She now considers herself an artist/designer/illustrator/marketer and farm wife always up for the next adventure and challenge.
In 2014, the couple began renovating Roger's boyhood home which had been heavily vandalized and vacant for years. The road to this point has not been easy but staying true to each other and with God’s guidance, the pieces of the work-in-progress farm venue have fallen into place. Each little project has slowly brought the property back to life and the vision of the farm venue into reality. After countless repair projects, fence building, and construction coordination, there is now a usable 2500 square foot farmhouse on 43 acres of farmland approved for wedding use! The very first wedding was held on June 4th 2016 and before it, a few other small wedding events and parties.
The Little's are the caretakers for the property. They live on the adjacent 26 acres, tending the cattle that you can see grazing on the property! Oak trees, pine trees and a rolling hills stand as the backdrop for the outdoor event space. Cows and mini donkeys are seen in the distance as you watch the sunset from 180 degrees. The Little's feel blessed to have the farmhouse and want to share their beautiful spot with many others! They hope that much laughter and new memories will be made there!
