Our Story

because; family is life’s greatest blessing
A Historic Idaho Barn Venue

Built over 100 years ago, this beautiful structure has played many roles. In its earlier days, the Mader Barn provided winter shelter for farm animals and their feed. As farming changed it became storage for a myriad of various farm equipment during the winter months. In more recent years, the Mader Barn has been the backdrop for a variety of fundraisers for charitable organizations.

It was at one of these events that a little girl told her mother she wanted to get married, “here at this farm in the barn.” In August 2013, that young lady’s dream came true. Since then other couples have exchanged vows in this quiet, country setting. Though the barn still houses farm equipment in the winter, we have worked to improve the facility to make it more wedding friendly.

"The Maders were so hospitable to our caterers, our wedding crew, and our guests and we really couldn't be more grateful. I highly recommend them to anyone."
