What We Do

We host and cater wedding ceremonies & receptions on our farm, which is located about thirty minutes outside of Greensboro, NC. We can accommodate up to 150 guests on our property.
We provide the following for our wedding clients:
1. A simple planning process for the bride & groom. We believe a wedding should be fun and exciting to plan, not stressful.
2. A beautiful, natural environment. Our decorations are gardens, goats, and chickens!
3. Delicious, farm-fresh food at your reception. All of our food is made from ingredients sourced from our farms or other local farms.
4. A comfortable atmosphere in which you (and your guests!) can relax and truly enjoy your wedding.

"Hi Mills,
I hope you guys are well. We finally got our pictures back and here are few of them. Looking through them made me cry all over again and made me so happy. It truly was the perfect day in every way and I've told everyone I know about GLD. Thank you again!"
Thanks Stephanie! These pictures were taken by Evergreen Studio.

Missy & Ray - 9.10.11

untitled (11 of 47)

Missy and Ray were married at Goat Lady Dairy on September 10, 2011. They had an afternoon ceremony followed by a multi-course brunch. This was the first time we had an afternoon wedding and it was fabulous! Missy and Ray were SO fun to work with - we are going to miss seeing them. They were the first couple that invited Nate and I to join them on their honeymoon!

The pictures were taken by Jessica Trotman, one of Goat Lady's favorite photographers. Thanks for sharing, Jessica!

Here is the incredibly sweet email we received from Missy the day after the wedding:

"Hi guys,
 We will never be able to thank you or express how happy we were with EVERYTHING at the wedding.  Ray and I talked all evening about how great our day turned out.  Everyone loved the food, the atmosphere, and the lovely relaxed mood of the day. Kudos to your staff for being so friendly and helpful to all our guests.  You were able to exceed our expectations by far!  We knew the day was terrific when we never wanted to leave.  We were the first to arrive and last to drive away...and we wouldn't have it any other way.  There's not one single thing we would have changed for this entire experience.

We absolutely love you guys, please keep in touch!  
Thank you for everything...we're off to the beach!

Missy & Ray"

Susannah & Paul 6.11.2011

     When asked what her favorite part of the wedding was, Susannah's flower girl answered "the chickens and the dancing." We at Goat Lady Dairy could not hope for a better reaction.
     If someone asked me this question, I would probably have to reply "the rain." This was the first rainy wedding we have had at Goat Lady Dairy and I could not have asked for a better couple to go with on this adventure. Five minutes after the ceremony was supposed to begin, it was still raining. The forecast for the day had been sunny, so we had not had a tent set up over the ceremony site. I walked into the guest house, soaking wet from the rain, and told Susannah - who looked STUNNING - that we were starting the ceremony, rain and all. Susannah did not even flinch. "Okay, great!" she said. There are few brides who will willingly, not too mention joyfully, agree to a wedding ceremony in the rain. Susannah Haskett Bunch is one who will.
     It stopped raining shortly after the ceremony began and the rest of the evening was BEAUTIFUL. But I am grateful for the rainstorm that not only cooled off the farm, but also made Susannah & Paul's wedding one for the books.
     Abigail Seymour was the photographer for this wedding and has allowed me to post the following photographs below. Not only is Abigail one of my favorite Greensboro photographers, but she is an amazing person. Thank you Abigail!

Susannah - Thank you for trusting me with your wedding day and for being an AMAZING bride. I look forward to growing our friendship sans lily of the valley bouquets! You better Belize it!
