Best Wedding Venue Tallahassee: Lewiswood Farm

The Story

Lewiswood Farm, a functioning tree farm, wildlife habitat and firewood processing operation. Owned and operated by Debra and John Lewis. The story of this barn raising is amazing. John, who was one of twelve children, was raised in Woodville on a farm and Debra was raised nearby on a plantation. The country life is all these two have ever known! Their life long goal has been to improve the land yet preserve a natural habitat for the many species of wildlife located on Lewiswood Farm.

As the owner of Lewis Land Clearing for over 30 years, John has always been involved in every aspect of wood usage. In the 1980s, with his brothers, John bought a sawmill. Rather than burn or discard many of the beautiful trees he removed for customers in his land clearing business, John began to recycle these trees via the sawmill. Many houses, barns, camps and cabins have been the result. Years later, John bought a firewood processor. The hardwoods that were not lumber quality were then cut up into firewood. During all these years, John dreamed of building a “big barn” one day.

John preserved virgin loblolly and long-leaf pines for the massive beams and posts to build the barn. It took many years of saw-milling, but the result is breathtaking! There is not one stick of “store bought” lumber in the barn; every piece was milled by John. So, you can see why he is very proud to share his legacy with you! It is truly a one-of-a-kind barn!

Lewiswood Farm is a short 15 minute drive south from downtown Tallahassee and is located at 4500 Natural Bridge Rd Tallahassee, Florida. The barn is 3720 square foot heated and cooled. Lewiswood farm offers several ceremony sites for your wedding and has a five star rating on Wedding Wire.
