What our Friends Say
Alegre Farm Testimonials
Five stars aren’t enough. This place is really amazing! The kids and I had been to a few Farm Adventures Days before I booked a party for my daughter’s third birthday. We had 21 children total and this was by far the perfect choice. The space was beautiful, open and clean and the bounce house went up minutes after we arrived. Every staff member we met was so kind and helpful. The kids had an amazing and memorable time. More than one parent told me how impressed they were with all that was offered. And the promise of farm fun was apparently enough for many of the dads to show up, lol! I looked at several venues for parties and felt like this package was heads above so many of the other options at a similar price point. You get a lot for what you pay! It was a wonderful experience and I would absolutely book there again. We will also be back for more Farm Adventure days. Thank you, Pilar and everyone else we spoke with yesterday! You guys gave us a magical experience that I think all the kids will remember!

Celebrated my son's birthday at Rancho Allegre 3 times and it was excellent every time. After me my sister and friends celebrated their kids birthday's as well and we always love being there. The adults like it as much as the kids. The owners are great and the service they provide is the best!

Tired of doing the same ole' thing? This is the spot for you. All I kept hearing is that this was the best party ever!! The kids and parents loved it!! The staff is super friendly. It is very private so you do not have to compete with other parties for space, or wait in lines for attractions. The venue was clean and well kept. They also did an amazing job of keeping the party going. There was never a dull moment. The farm was very welcoming and had a lot of space for kids to play with great views. I highly recommend this place for all occasions.
Our 7 year old wanted pony rides for his birthday, so we scheduled a birthday party package at the back pavilion. The venue itself is well maintained and quite lovely. All of the kids had an amazing time and even some of the parents rated it as the best party ever. The staff were friendly and the various party events ran smoothly. We could not have hoped for a better birthday party. We will certainly have another event here in the future.

I can’t thank you enough for the AMAZING time my daughter has with her friends for her 8th birthday! From scheduling the party to clean up, everything was very easy. Your staff was helpful and patient with 15 seven to eight year old girls! My daughter has not stopped talking about it and says it was the “best birthday party ever”. Thanks again for all of your help and I’m sure we’ll be back again very soon.
Thank you for a wonderful experience! My guests, young and old can’t stop talking about the wonderful time they had and how it wasn’t just kid friendly! Everyone loved the pony and horse rides, hay rides and feeding the animals! Although Nickolas turned five years old, this was his first birthday party and he had a blast!!! My friends thought that he would have had a meltdown due to some triggers with his autism, like fear of crowds, and wanting to be by himself a lot, but everyone was amazed at how social he was with everyone, especially the animals…..HE LOVED THEM!!! I sent some of his pictures of him riding the pony and horses and feeding the animals, to his teacher and his psychiatrist, so they could see what an amazing great time he had. Thanks for the memories…..if I’m still residing in Georgia next year, I’m definitely booking your facility again! Nickolas says “Thank you very much also!
My wife and I had our wedding there in October 2016. This place is beautiful with an amazing Family. It was so nice not to have worry about anything going from start to finish for our special day. The Farm, Staff, Setup, Setting, and just the overall vibe was a blessing. This is a 5+ star venue for an outdoor wedding. This place cannot be deplicated with their unique atmosphere. We are so lucky and happy for having our wedding at Alegre Farm.

Absolutely wonderful! Our son and daughter in law were married here Oct.29th. The venue was perfect. All of the staff were very professional and friendly. The reception was beautifully decorated. Overall it turned out perfect and I would recommend this venue for any special occasion.
I could not have chosen a better place to have our wedding. It was close to 316 for family and friends to access easily. And the team at Rancho Alegre were amazing. For a low maintenance bride like me I did not have to worry about a thing. And they added so many personal touches to the day that made it us, which was perfect. Thank you for my stress free best day ever!
We had the pleasure of having our daughter's wedding there Friday evening 05/20/2016 The weather was not perfect but you never would have known that with the care that they took of everyone. What a beautiful place. The hospitality was overwhelming. We appreciate everything they provided and everything they did. We forgot a few things and they made it work. I can not say enough good things about the venue and the owners. This is our second wedding of our daughters and this was much more delightful. From the mother and father of the bride we recommend this venue to everyone.
This was our dream venue!! The price was amazing for everything that Rancho Alegre and owner Pilar put into our wedding! From the start, Pilar wanted to make sure that our wedding was amazing. She worked with us through the entire process on decor, catering, and everything in between. She and her team had to put up with my Type A personality with lists and questions growing more frequent as our special day approached. Everything was handled professionally. Day of went off without a hitch! We didn’t have a wedding coordinator, but Pilar made sure everything was were it was supposed to be, when it was supposed to be there. It was perfect. When we lost our Unity candles, she went out of her way to find them and return them. We were treated like family before, during, and after our wedding, and would highly recommend Rancho Alegre Farm!
Upon looking for a wedding venue (which was the hardest thing to do in just a short 12 weeks) we stumbled across Rancho Alegre Farm. Let me just say that was the best thing we could have ever done. The farm was the first…and ONLY venue that my new husband and I went to…we fell IN LOVE. There was no if ands or buts about it, we had made up our minds. Knowing that my wedding was going to be the first wedding they had ever done was a little nerve wracking but thank god for Pilar and her team. They made our day so beautiful and so special. We could not have asked for more. The bridal suite was gorgeous! These generous people open up their home to you and yours just to make sure that your day is perfect. I was so incredibly happy. There were a couple of other events going on that day but we had absolutely no interruptions to be quite honest. The place is so big I didn’t even hear the other parties. It was very quiet! Pilar and her team did such an amazing job. If I could do it all over again. I would absolutely 100% choose Rancho Alegre Farm. Pilar, Iris, and the rest of the team. My husband and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Without you guys our day wouldn’t have been the same. We love you guys and are so incredibly grateful for everything you did to make the start of our lives and our marriage the best it could have possibly been.

We had our class reunion here and had a great time! Niko was great to work with and Angela was a gracious event coordinator. Would recommend!
Rancho Alegre is an asset to our community, we have hosted our Christmas party there and they have done a great job of catering and accommodating around 100 guest.
This is a great venue! I love every event I have ever been to at this location! Hayrides, s'mores, animals, worms, and chickens.
I’d come back a million times and over!!!!
Having attended and planned several events at Rancho Alegre, I just wanted to let others know what a wonderful meeting location. Esp for local food events. The quality of the food they sell is exceptional. The owners are wonderful to work with and always go the extra mile to ensure the success of any events held here. Kids also love to see the happy healthy animals on pasture.
The field trip was great. Some even said the best one yet. Their favorite part was petting the horse. They are kindergarten so they told everyone they petted a unicorn. We liked that you rotated us through and were able to visit 5 to 6 of the stations. We appreciated your help with unpacking and reloading the coolers for our lunch. We really enjoyed our trip and we look forward to coming again next year.
Hopkins Elementary School - Spring 2019
The [students] favorite part [of the field trip] has been feeding and petting the animals, milking the goat, and the tractor ride. I think they were really excited to interact with the animals. Everything moved very smooth! Thank you so much for an awesome field trip!
1st Grade - Significant Developmental Delay - Lawrenceville Elementary School - Spring 2019
I wanted to thank you all for your hospitality on Thursday when our GAC 2nd grade came to visit. The kids really enjoyed themselves and all of the teachers commented on how organized and well thought out the lessons were.We would love to come back for a visit again next year.We loved our visit and thank you again!
Greater Atlanta Christian School - Spring 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and they all talked about how fun it was to learn about the garden and the animals. It warmed my heart as the educator and coach to see them light up and smile when interacting with the animals. Everyone was friendly and very accommodating to our group and we are very appreciative. I hope we can return to help our folks learn more about gardening and taking care of animals.

Patrick Elementary Kindergarten loved their experience at Rancho Alegre! We took 108 kindergartners and the staff at Rancho Alegre did a great job engaging them in an authentic learning experience. Hands-on experiences and appropriately leveled instruction made it a lifetime memory for our five-year-olds! It was easy to book, plan, and pay. Several of our kindergartners said it was THE BEST DAY EVER! Thank you, Angie Mallard and the rest of the team at Ranch Alegre! We can't wait to see you next year!

The 2nd grade teachers and students at Partee ES are still raving about the farm months later! After a negative experience at another location, it was refreshing to have this field trip go so smoothly. The students were engaged, learned a lot, and had so much fun! The teachers said they loved how organized and kid-friendly everything was. The content was definitely age-appropriate and tied in to our standards perfectly. Each station was interactive and interesting, which kept the kids from getting bored and disruptive. Our field trip was smooth from start to finish (with our rowdy crew of mostly boys, that's quite a feat)! We can’t wait to book with you again next Spring!

Cooper Elementary First grade took a field trip to Rancho Alegre and we truly cannot say enough about how wonderful it was. It was so easy to coordinate and plan with Angie, she was very helpful. The kids had an absolute blast! It will definitely be a trip that we take again. Thank you to the staff at Rancho Alegre farms for making it such a memorable experience for us teachers and first grade kiddos! Truly, I only have positive things to say! I really liked how you incorporated the shape hunt on the hayride. The students LOVED petting all of the animals, I think that may have been their favorite part. The garden was wonderful just letting them explore. It goes along very well with 1st grade curriculum.Everyone absolutely loved the field trip. We will definitely be returning. We will be in touch next school year! 🙂
Cooper Elementary School - April 2017-
Angie... I can not thank you enough for providing our young scholars with such an amazing experience. The time, effort and dedication that you took to ensure that our trip was a success does not go unnoticed. Every student thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Your farm and awesome staff really touched the lives of many children today and we are so grateful. I will definitely be in touch over the course of the upcoming school year so that we can visit again. Thank You!
K-3 ASD Teacher. Nesbit Elementary School - May 2017-
We enjoyed our visit so much this year. Like I said, it seems like the tour gets better and more informative each year. Yes, the lessons at each station were appropriate and informative. We loved the improvements at the garden station. It was more interactive and kid friendly, as well as just more informative. I felt as if the worm station was better organized this year. The information was given and then the kids could use the tools to look for worms. We all liked that the hayride was hayless, too. Lol. The goat milking and petting farm hands were really good with the kids. The pony station was good, too. I don't remember a horse shoe being passed around last year, so that was fun for the kids. All of us had our students write and illustrate about the trip that next Monday and Tuesday. They were very engaged because it was such a good experience for them. Thank you for letting us eat in the banquet hall...and setting up more tables for us. We really appreciated it. I am quite sure the kindergarten teachers are going to want to visit, again, next year. Thank you, Angie, and your staff, for a well organized and worthwhile trip. We would definitely recommend this to others!
Burnett Elementary - April 2017-
This is the third year we have been to Rancho Allegre and it is always the most fun field trip we have! I love supporting a family-owned organic farm. We are working on our STEM certification and our focus is Agriculture, so we refer to it often. Our time at Rancho Allegre is always organized and fun. The kids LOVE it and it is very appropriate! Thank you for a great time every time.

Kindergarten Teacher, STEM Committee Chair, Hawthorne Elementary - November 2016 -
Our visit to your farm was the most talked about field trip so far. The parents even mentioned how stress-free and fun the trip was. We are a 1st grade class and everything that was taught was interesting and age appropriate. The kids LOVE milking the goat, then the worm farm, feeding the animals, brushing the pony, tractor ride, and the garden. After our visit, we were working on narrative writing. With the shared experience of the farm, our grade level could use the field trip to help relate the topic to the students. Once we got to the farm everything was very organized. The rotations flow smoothly and the timing allows just enough time at each station that students stay engaged. I am so thankful for your patient and understanding staff. We had issues with our buses not arriving at school so we were running late. When I called, everyone was so understanding, comforting and reassuring that it helped us stress a little less. When eating lunch, help is offered to get the students settled and everyone is just so kind. Our grade level had an amazing time at the farm and we hope to keep it our must do field trip every year!
Alford Elementary School -October 2016 -
My son had a fabulous time at your camp this week. He enjoyed all the activities! He kept talking about the "cheesy bread" he made and how he helped to squeeze lemons/limes for the drink. He was so proud. He also spoke of picking blackberries and mint. He told me all about diff kinds of mint. He also said he likes* bees now. He loved petting the soft bunnies and the farm dog. He spoke of the chicken trying to lay eggs with everyone watching. He had fun and learned lots of new things. Sometimes it's hard to find fun activities that are also educational. I think the half day, 3 days was perfect for this farm camp.
My girls attended the 3-day summer camp at Rancho Alegre and loved it! The loved learning about and feeding the animals and loved going through the garden. They even got to ride and bathe the horses. They immediately asked when they could go again.
My 10 year old and I had a great time at one of their science camp's, owner and staff were awesome and knowledgeable. Looking forward to attending another camp. Highly recommend it for all ages!
