Compass Occasions started while daydreaming on a road trip from San Francisco to Seattle in the Summer of 2014. We talked along the curves of highway 1 about our dreams of coordinating event professionally. Part of that dream was to open venues all over Hutchinson to hold our events. We fantasized about a rooftop patio for swanky cocktail parties, a historic home full of charm to hold private dinner parties, but we wondered what would make a great larger venue space that was different than the other venues in town.
When we were approached by Andy and Irene of York Farm, we were ecstatic. They were looking for someone to help turn their charming barn into a venue space. A beautiful barn on an organic fruit farm surrounded by prairie, organic strawberries, an orchard, and a vineyard, yes please! Better than we ever imagined!
Here we are, 3 months later and we have already hosted our first event, The Mad Hatter Tea Party. We are looking forward to inviting everyone to come see what we’ve been up to. Andy and Irene have been busy working inside the barn and we look forward to showing you the beauty and charm of York Farm.
Join us, Sunday June 3rd 2016 from 11-2 for our first York Farm Open House. We have Mandy of Bella Lue photography coming out to photograph the day. She will be sharing her work for those of you looking for a great photographer for your next event. Mary of Elbows Allowed Catering will also be sharing her tasty treats and refreshments. We will be featuring some of our favorite decor and tablescapes. Get ideas for your next event. While you are out, take a tour of their organic fruit farm, sample their tasty chocolate mint, and don’t forget to say hi to their pigs. Hope to see you there!
