Event Space FAQ

Redeemed Farm is a historic Century Farm located 30 minutes north of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St Paul in Scandia. We have lovingly restored the farmstead with the dream of hosting weddings and events in addition to it being our home. We love sharing our farm with others and having it used for such a joyous occasion as a wedding.
