Nestled away on a 100 acre farm in Marysville, IN, Franklin Farms Event Venue, LLC. brings you a one of a kind experience in wedding, corporate events + family celebrations.
Franklin Farms is a family owned farm nestled near New Washington, IN. It is owned by Peg & Greg Hostettler who grew up in the small town and have found their way back from Franklin, TN. The Hostettler’s vision for the farm is to create an event space that magnifies your dream wedding, corporate retreat or family event. The farm itself encompasses the meaning of family. It is ran by Peg, Greg and their three sons, Logan, Lincoln & Lane — amongst many other family members.
The name Franklin Farms stems from Peg Franklin Hostettler alongside her seven brothers and sisters, Dave, Bonnie, Pat, Bub, Tuff, Ed + Kathy.. When Peg was a little girl, she had visited the farm many times over and fell in love with the house, the land and everything about the property. The Franklin’s all reside within a 10 mile radius of the farm and can all be found there on a given day.
A look into the future of Franklin Farms includes Weddings, Corporate Retreats, Corn Mazes, Pumpkin Patches, Haunted Houses, Winter Wonderlands and even Antique Shows. It will be a fully rentable venue including a Carriage House, The Franklin House, the Barn and the Grainery. See our Pricing Page for more details.
We look forward to growing with community and being able to create a fun and memorable experience at Franklin Farms just like Peg had when she was growing up.

FRANKLIN FARMS EVENT VENUE, LLC + P. ALLEN SMITH
With roots in Southern Indiana, the Hostettler clan has made it's way back from Nashville, TN to explore a dream - Franklin Farms Event Venue, LLC.
In April of 2015 we received the go ahead that the purchasing of the farm was final! You can't imagine the excitement we had - then the big question followed swiftly after. Where do we get started? How do we go about this extreme undertaking and who do we hire? Wait, What did we just do? How do we run an event venue? So much was running through our minds with no direction.
Greg (Owner) has an obsession with his garden in Tennessee. So much so, that he would watch P. Allen Smiths show on Saturday morning television to gather ideas and how to's on different gardening techniques. All of us (Peg, Logan, Lincoln, Lane & Christy) would just laugh at his silly fetishes. Then he started showing us their website. The next thing we know, he took it a step further and asked P. Allen Smith about his consulting. This raised our attention. Mary, one of P. Allen's associates, called Greg to set up a time to meet. One look at what is now, Franklin Farms Event Venue, LLC. and they were in!
Over the course of the past 2 years, we've been working diligently with P. Allen Smith and his crew to facilitate our next moves. Between the countless hours on the phone and meetings at Franklin Farms Event Venue, LLC we have established a game plan for a venue you only come across once in a lifetime. You will all be included in our journey. We cannot wait to share it with you!
