The BarnPlace aka Red Barns Farm is located in the wonderfully pristine, yet modern and growing community of Woodinville, Washington, just North-East of Seattle, and close to Bellevue, Redmond, and Kirkland, on the "Eastside" of Lake Washington.
Our farm is a mere five blocks from shopping, restaurants, and theaters in downtown Woodinville, yet tucked away among stately evergreen trees and open green pastures where we raise sheep, rabbits and many varieties of egg laying and rare breed chickens.
BarnPlace has an illustrious and unique history. The resident barn, was indeed, a dairy barn built in 1939 in the Gothic Gambrel style. This stunning architecture lent naturally to the decision to convert this massive 40 by 80 foot barn into a luxurious, rustic dwelling. The massive 35 by 40 foot living room boasts a seventeen-foot high ceiling and is lit by a twelve-foot high picture window; the view is stunning looking out over the orchard, which in spring, bursts into bloom and fragrance. The living room is heated in winter by a massive wood-burning fireplace, lending an ambience that is hard to duplicate anywhere. The centerpiece, a twenty-four foot, hand-crafted table, has been the focal point of many social gatherings over the years: seating 32 people, it is perfect for that family reunion or group dinner. Where cows were once milked, now hold thousands of theatrical quality, historic and Period costumes rented to many groups and individuals throughout the year.
The loft of the former horse barn now serves as a meeting space for 4-H groups, Grange and agricultural activities which includes a Farm Stand May through October on Fridays. The owners host mystery dinners, anniversaries and children's theme birthday parties. The facilities is available for small day conferences.
The farm buildings and grounds are open to group tours and host children's events throughout the year. The last Saturday in September is the annual Harvest Celebration Farm Tour featuring local farmers selling their fruits and vegetables, crafters, music and storytelling along with local historians. The all day event ends with an old-fashioned dessert social.
This unique farm is a backyard bird paradise with many native plants. The tall pine trees produce huge crops of needles each year for basket making. At year's end, the grape vines make wonderful wreaths and the pinecones are great for making bird feeders. A host of plant products and activities help support this small farm's 4-H Foster Farm Animal Program. The Program allows young people ages five to eighteen an opportunity to work with and learn about the care and management of sheep, rabbits and chickens then show at the local Fairs. The animals are fostered at the farm for children unable to raise livestock where they live. Proceeds from the sale of the farm's products go to support the animal's feed, health care and equipment.
