Deschutes County Farmer Plans New Tactic to Allow Farm Weddings

John Shepherd owns 200 acres northeast of Sisters.

 

He is going before the Deschutes County Commissioners Wednesday to seek a two acre private park permit.

 

This permit would allow him to hold up to 18 weddings a year on his property.

 

"One of the arguments I'm using is a full billet of weddings could mean 1.25 million of economic activity in Deschutes County.  That's based on economic activity based on what visitors spend and based on what the average consumer spends, $29-thousand on the average wedding."

 

Shepherd says it would be a win-win-win for him, the county and brides wanting to get married on his property.
