Meet the Owners

susan rae and wayne

Hey y’all! We are Susan Rae and Wayne, farmers and owners of our North Carolina wedding and event venue, The Farmer’s Daughter at Walston Pond. What started as a suggestion from a friend, quickly turned into a series of conversations focused on owning a barn venue. After praying, seeking God's will, and receiving confirmation, construction began on The Farmer's Daughter at Walston Pond.
