To reserve Varian Orchards for your event a non-refundable fee is required to hold your date. The full balance will be due before the event.
Cancellations will be handled on an individual basis. However, Varian Orchards, has fixed expenses since reservations are made a year in advance. It is almost impossible to fill open spots within a short time frame. For this reason, cancellations will result in the forfeiting of a large part of the fee to cover the loss of revenue for the event.
Vendors must adhere to the terms of our policies and it is the clients responsibility to share these policies with them. We have a list of preferred vendors we are happy to share with our clients.
A licensed catering company must serve food and alcoholic drinks for the day. The caterer will provide a full cooking and serving staff including at least one bartender if alcohol is being served. The caterer is responsible for the set-up, breakdown, and cleanup of the catered site. We ask that your caterer leave the catering areas the way they found them.
PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION
There will be parking available for up to 80 cars a short walk from the barn. We recommend, however, that a bus service be hired to shuttle guests between their accommodations and Varian Orchards for your guest’s safety and convenience.
