We have a wide variety of unique spaces and places that you can reserve for private events, both at the Honeysuckle Tea House and Farm, and at our other EastWest Organics venues, all of which are listed below.
If you are interested in renting a picnic table for a party or family gathering around the Tea House while the Honeysuckle Farm is open to the public, or if you want to reserve the entire farm and Tea House campus for a partial day or a full day event, both of those options are available as well.
An abundance of heartfelt thanks to the Honeysuckle Tea House team! We chose the Tea House for a wedding celebration of about 75 people and could not have been happier. The space is beautiful, with a central, rustic tea house surrounded by outdoor seating, a working herb garden, an outdoor stage (with sound system), a firepit, and tons of beautiful fields and gardens to walk in. Because they are part of the EastWest Organics Complex, we also were able to have our pictures taken at the Keith Arboretum, which is a sister member.
Throughout the planning process, we worked primarily with Alisa, who was absolutely wonderful. She always was available via email or text, open to any question or request, and, in the last month or so of planning, met with us more than once to work through last minute details. Because the Honeysuckle Tea House is also closely related to Looking Glass Cafe in downtown Carrboro, we ordered our alcohol through them, and Alisa invited my mom, my sister and me to a wonderful wine- and beer- taste testing to decide on choices. In addition, the Tea House provided us with a comprehensive “Preferred Vendors” list, although Alisa was also very willing to work with vendors that weren’t on the list.
We were exceptionally impressed with the day-of services. Alisa and her crew were there with us through the whole set up to move picnic tables and make sure the sound system was working. They even brainstormed with us when we thought that we may need to move the whole party inside. During the event, we also had the pleasure of help from Jamie, Dylan, and Eli, who were friendly and hard-working, and who went above and beyond our expectations.
We definitely would recommend the Honeysuckle Tea House to anyone looking for an intimate yet spacious indoor/outdoor space for an event. Everyone we worked with was incredibly friendly and personable and truly seemed to want to accommodate our needs.
If you prefer to only rent our farm field for an event, while the Honeysuckle Tea House is closed, you can do that as well.
Since we are a part of a farmily of locations, we can also provide you with an indoor space closer in town. For instance, you can also reserve our Looking Glass Tasting Room in Carrboro.
Also at Looking Glass Cafe and Tasting Room, you can reserve picnic tables for birthday parties and small events. Our herb garden mirrors many of the herbs and fruits we grow at our Honeysuckle Farm, so we refer to this outdoor space lovingly as the Honeysuckle Urban Herb Garden.
Finally, if the Honeysuckle Farm is already booked, and you'd like to reserve a large outdoor farm venue, consider holding your event at the Keith Arboretum, Forest and Farmstead, which is another one of our EastWest Organics farms.
