About Wishing Well Barn History

The Welch Family

Mr. Robert Welch bought this farm in 1960 and moved his family of five children here with his wife, Polly. Mr. Welch farmed cattle on this land over the years alongside strawberries, oranges, and many other fruits and vegetables. There was always a special place in his heart for cattle. Blake & Michelle Welch continue this family tradition with five of our own sons and a love for cattle ranching and blueberry farming.

Blake and Michelle, Wishing Well Barn Owners

Blake manages the cattle ranch and blueberry farm, and Michelle is the Wedding Venue Manager, Wedding Designer, and Coordinator. Together, we have five sons and their families. Our family starts with our oldest son Kyle and Railynne, and our grandkids, Calleigh Jo and Ryker. Next are Cory and Jessica and our grands, Cullen and Codie. Then, we have Tommy and Riley. Next in line are Daniel and Olivia and our grands, Easton and Bryson. And, last, but not least, are Dillon and his fiance’, Katie. Sassy is our furriest of family members 🙂 We started our wedding venture when three of our boys were married within one calendar year! Their friends and friends of friends started asking if they could get married here on the farm, and so, we added agricultural events to our cattle and blueberry farm!
