Owner description: Chattooga Belle Farm is a 138-acre working farm and event destination boasting a stunning 270 degree view of rolling hills, vineyards, orchards and berry patches among the backdrop of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Also raising grass-fed Black Angus Cattle that they sell in their farm store, you can see them grazing in the pastures where they are raised humanely and natually.Located in beautiful Long Creek, SC, this hidden jewel has been open to the public since April, 2010. The Farm attracts a variety of outdoor enthusiasts. Offering over a dozen fruits for U-pick opportunities, a picturesque 18-hole Disc Golf Course, a quaint lake cabin on Horseshoe Lake and an observation circle for astronomers. The store, open seven days a week, sells their South Carolina Grown and Certified products, including their own brand of wine and their all-natural grass-fed Black Angus Beef! Now the location of choice for weddings, family reunions, corporate events and any other special occasion, The Farm offers a large event barn which accommodates 300 people, complete with a full service kitchen. We serve lunch daily at Belle's Bistro from 11-2, featuring local food and produce from the farm. Please come visit and enjoy what is becoming everyone's "favorite place on the planet!"

I contacted Chattooga Belle Farm to ask about a very small, standing, and very fast ceremony on a Saturday in October. I just wanted enough time to have a 15 minute ceremony, and have some pictures on the property. When Kitty Land, the owner, contacted me back with a $4,000 quote, I explained that was greedy and would not like to work with a farm who would charge so much for an event that seemed to require so little of them. Of course it seems like they reserve their Saturdays for people who have the money to rent the entire location for the entire day. Of course that wasn't what I was asking. Later I get a text message from my mother in law, asking when I had contacted the farm, that she knew the owner. Kitty Land, the owner, got onto FACEBOOK and looked MY FACEBOOK up, found that I was friends with her friend (my future mother in law), AND CONTACTED MY MOTHER IN LAW!!! WOW! I cannot explain how disgusted I feel with the owner of Chatooga Belle Farm stalking me. Very scary. Beware.

Unfortunately, this is not accurate. All our Saturdays in October are booked. We do not give out pricing on initial contact. Our pricing for average sized weddings start at $2100, though we have allowed weddings for type of one which you are now describing at absolutely no charge. We offered you alternative days initially, and it was THEN that you accused us of being greedy, only allowing larger weddings on Saturdays in October. After that, not only did we give you an explanation of our charges, the fact that our prices haven't increased in three years, but also gave you the opportunity to come learn more about our finances and farm practices and to earn a significant discount. Given that you are a finance major, this could have been an excellent opportunity for you. The fact that I am friends with your future mother-in-law hardly counts as stalking. We wish you and yours the very best and hope you find a spectacular place to marry next October. Congratulations again.

This is an absolutely beautiful farm with the most amazing scenery, but if you are planning a wedding here, you may want to ask a few more questions before you book that dream wedding. If you pay extra to rent the barn for the whole day, the bistro and farm store are still open to the public till 2pm and 4pm. If you are trying to decorate for a wedding, then people and animals are constantly passing through the barn and your decorated reception tables all day long. It is hard to get around these people, answer their questions, and keep them from destroying your decor. I think this could easily be handled by management, but didn't seem to be a problem to them. They just need their patrons to be told that the barn is closed due to the setting up of a wedding. This is not done, at this time. The staff were as helpful as they could be with the current policy in place. If you are able to pull off a 5pm wedding after the "crowds" leave at 4pm, then it is absolutely beautiful.

We are very sorry your experience was less than ideal. We do close the inside of the barn to the general public, lock the front doors and put signs on the doors redirecting the public to the farm store and the side porch for the Bistro. It is very unusual to have "crowds" of people feeeling comfortable walking through a wedding setup, and we will be more attentive to situations like that in the future.

Four of us have enjoyed this venue on two different occasions. We saw the husband both times and found him very informative and delightful. We had a very enjoyable lunch and the view was spectacular. I look forward to returning many times. .

Fun, fresh idea for outdoor dining! Small menu, but local food and varied enough for anyone to find something yummy. Cute little shop of local goodies. Others were picking apples in the orchard after eating.

We went to watch the sunset. Simply amazing...cool to walk the vineyards and sit on the rolling hills and watch the sun set over the mountains:) There was a wedding going on when we were there and it was a perfect location.
