Our Favorite Feature

It was difficult to choose just one favorite feature when it comes to the Apiary. This is truly a breathtaking and glamorous venue. However, we thought about it and the sophistication and elegance of this venue is EVERYTHING. Each and every detail feels very “grand” in nature from the historic brick walls, to the gigantic windows to the gorgeous outdoor gardens to the venue crawling with ivy. Have you seen the way they set up a dinner table? This is truly a hidden gem you have to check out, especially if you want every wedding photo to have a beautiful backdrop. While this venue is absolutely stunning all the way around, the refined and classic vibes they’ve clearly worked hard to establish, is by far our favorite feature.

#7 Burdoc Farms - Crofton, Kentucky

For the Pinterest-Worthy Farm Wedding with a View ...

Tall Windows on Barn

Want to feel like you’re in the mountains, with some of the best views in Western Kentucky? If you’re looking to have the most romantic wedding day complete with breathtaking views at every angle, this is the venue to check out. With over 650 acres of open fields and forest, Burdoc Farms has been in the Shepherd family for over 75 years. The farm was once a tobacco and cattle farm, producing national champion Shorthorn Beef Cattle in the 60’s. When Keith and Sara Shepherd took over operations in the 90’s the farm was converted to a conservation farm, with timber management, wildlife habitat, recreation and agri-tourism becoming the main focus of farm operations. The wedding business was started in 2012 with the conversion of the equipment barn, now known as The Chapel Barn. Then the rehabilitation of the The Tobacco Barn followed. The Shepherd family painstakingly rehabbed and recycled all materials in both barns to enhance and preserve the authenticity of the buildings. In 2016 the second venue was built, Keith Glen, a year round facility with a 30 foot glass wall, natural stone features and wood accents, all taken from the farm and incorporated in the design of the building. It is important to the Shepherd Family to be able to share their family farm in a unique way and promise to provide you with a setting that is authentic, memorable and one of a kind.

Burdoc Farms Offers

  • Year Round Weddings

  • 2 Wedding Venues (seasonal wedding venue May-Oct and year-round wedding venue)

  • Indoor & Outdoor Ceremonies

  • Indoor Areas for Reception

  • All Inclusive, Micro-Weddings and Elopement Packages

Our Favorite Feature

While we absolutely LOVE the beauty of both venues, our favorite feature has to be the 30-foot tall glass wall at Keith Glen! Can you imagine the beautiful view and amazing photos you can get? This venue has truly thought of every detail. At the Tobacco Barn venue, there is a gazebo nestled in the woods, opening up to beautiful green fields where chairs/hay bales can be set up for your ceremony. In the chapel barn there are church pews, string lights with Edison bulbs, a crystal chandelier, a set of white antique doors and tree stumps. At the Keith Glen venue, a ceremony pad sits by the pond, with a lighted fountain, swans, and tall oak trees that shade the ceremony area. Benches, white wood chairs and an arbor are available to decorate the site! Did we mention a Pinterest-worthy wedding?

A Note from the Owners

I think what makes us unique is that we are a family farm and we live on the property so we are invested not just on a business level but on a personal level in our wedding business. So because of that, we want to make sure your wedding event is the most memorable event possible and your experience stress free.

Our Favorite Feature

This venue is great because you’re not just squeezing your wedding into one day, but instead it’s stretched out into an entire weekend to really soak in all of the wedding celebrations and make as many memories as possible with your loved ones.

Plus, it’s super close to Madison, IN where there are tons of things to do! This venue is full of character and is sure to create an amazing wedding weekend.

A Note from the Owners

From Colleen (Owner & Operator): I believe what makes us "unique" here at Richwood on the River is a combination of a few things. One is that we are a wedding venue where you get to experience quality time with your guests, family, and friends. If you are booking for the weekend, you arrive at 12 noon on Friday and enjoy the venue until 12 noon on Sunday. If you are one of our weekday wedding couples, you get 3 nights and 4 days on the property with arrival on Monday at 12 noon and departure on Thursday at 12 noon. We like to think that weddings at Richwood are not just a union of 2 but a reunion of many! Another way that Richwood on the River is a unique wedding venue is that we offer planning assistance to our couples from the moment they book with us. So even though we LOVE to work with Wedding Planners, (they are some of our favorite vendors), we do offer assistance to our couples throughout the planning process and are with them from the moment they arrive at the venue until they depart after all festivities are completed. Richwood on the River Staff works seamlessly with all of your wedding vendors to ensure a smooth and well thought out event. We work with you behind the scenes so that all of your carefully thought out plans of what your wedding day looks like, happen for you and your guests to enjoy. And lastly, we are a unique wedding venue because we are also a Full-Service Bed & Breakfast. So you can come back and enjoy Richwood as one of our BnB guests and reminisce about your beautiful wedding for years to come.
