Steve Frey purchased the land that would become Weston Red Barn Farm in 1989. This was the realization of a 10-year dream for Steve, as he had vivid memories of visits to his uncle’s farm in Missouri as a child and wanted to recreate that experience for others.
He restored the old buildings on the farm and built new ones, using old materials. He also planted an orchard full of apple trees for picking. In 1990, Weston Red Barn Farm opened for business.
Today, Steve and his wife Cindy own and operate the farm. They have two children, Donovan and Amy, and three grandchildren, Isabella, Addison, and Amelia.
Their mission has been to provide an educational experience for children and a place for families to enjoy an authentic farm setting in a safe, peaceful and noncommercial environment.
In 2012, over 12,000 children visited the farm with their classmates and thousands of families came to purchase peaches, apples, corn and pumpkins. We hope that you will bring your family to our farm and enjoy “a day at the farm for learning and fun!”
In 2008, Steve and Cindy Frey were honored by the North American Farmers' Direct Marketing Association (NAFDMA) with the organizations Direct Farm Marketer of the Year Award.
Farms are nominated for this prestigious honor by their peers, and the finalists then make 30 minute presentations before the NAFDMA conference. Farm marketers from throughout North America in attendance at the conference then select the winning farm by ballot.
