Private Tours and Venue Rental
Willow City Farm, located just 6 miles west of Veterans Parkway, now offers outdoor private parties, tours, and venue rental.
Willow City Farm @ the Bomke Homestead is nestled on 74 acres, just six miles west of Springfield. Our venue offers rustic simplicity, and features wide-open spaces…the perfect place to gather with friends and family with nearly unlimited guest capacity.
There’s plenty of room on the grounds for kids to run and play and have a great time! Our spacious grounds offer unlimited options for gatherings of all types and sizes. We host receptions, reunions, festivals/fairs, company picnics, corporate events, and other private gatherings. PLUS, you can choose to add special attractions to your event, such as hayrides and bonfires. You can even have a private Goats + Yoga class or offer pony rides!
While you and your guests are at the farm, you'll have the option to meet and feed the calves, goats, lambs, sheep, horses, and alpaca, collect chicken eggs, and learn all about livestock and safety on a farm if you'd like.
We have seasonal craft projects that include painting with baby chicks,
planting seeds, or painting pumpkins. Guests can tour barns coops and
even an outhouse that are over 100 years old and moved to the farm by
draft horses. We'll even discuss the historic carpentry used to build these
We work with local beer and food vendors to help you offer everything
your guests need! We are currently giving tours and booking events for 2023.
Coming Spring of 2023:
Our new barn will be up soon! We are looking forward to having the extra
space for our animals and another spot for you to enjoy a private party at
our working farm. Stay tuned for more information!
