Wishing Well Barn

Our Story

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. Our family starts with our oldest son Kyle, his wife, Railynne, and our grandkids, Calleigh Jo and Ryker. Cory and his wife Jessica and our grandson, Cullen are next, then we have our son, Tommy. Next in line are our son, Daniel, and our grandson, Easton. And last but not least are our son Dillon and his girlfriend, 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!
