We want you to have as much freedom as possible to make food and beverage decisions based on your style, taste and budget.

Unfortunately that does not include providing your own food or alcohol.

All events must use licensed caterers with up to date St. Louis County Health Department certification, minimum 1 million dollar liability insurance naming us as additional insured, and any alcoholic bar service must be provided by a vendor with active Liquor License through St. Louis County - utilizing a 'picnic permit' to use their license off of their main business property.

Using licensed vendors protects our property and the health and safety of your guests. 

If providing your own food and beverage is something essential for your event,

here is an option for you to consider http://www.stlouisco.com/parksandrecreation/picnicsbanquetsweddings

                          IMPORTANT CATERER & BAR INFO:                          

Use of any food or beverage provider not on the list is still subject to venue approval PRIOR to contracting with them, and IF approved, caterer / bar service provider must pay a 10% venue fee.  

This policy is non-negotiable. This fee provides for time meeting with incoming vendor to tour them our facility, communicate our Property Guidelines, Rules, Access & Parking, as well as our submission of their provided copy of their St. Louis County Health Department certification, as well as a Certificate of Liability naming Kuhs Farm LLC. as additional insured for the day.

The 10% service fee will be paid (based on final guarantee guest count) to venue prior to any event setup taking place.

For non-Preferred Vendors, to ensure full satisfactory event delivery for our clients as well as adherence to our property rules, we require a $500 cleanup deposit check, that upon successful final event walk-through, will be returned to vendor.


Outside Caterer

If you would like to work with a caterer who is not on our list / has not provided catering for an event here, we will pair them with one of our existing Liquor service / staffing providers (see above) to ensure that one of the major vendor staffs for an event is familiar with property use, rules, access and expectations, to ensure smooth and seamless event service, as well as end of event clean up and trash removal.

Outside Liquor Service / Bar provider

Use of an outside Liquor Service / Bar vendor (not on our Preferred List) is also subject to pre-approval with venue prior to contracting with them.  To be considered, said Liquor Service / Bar vendor must set time to meet with venue to discuss property rules, use and expectations, as well as provide current and valid copies of documentation regarding St. Louis County approved Liquor Licensing, Proof of (minimum 1 million C.O.I. naming Kuhs Farm LLC. as additional insured)Insurance, pricing, staffing information, staffing ratios and point of contact event manager information.


New Vendor Policy:

We will consider working with either a new caterer (subject to venue pre-approval) or new Bar provider (subject to venue pre- approval), but not both at the same time.


We do this:

  • to ensure that the vendor you select is appropriately prepared and comfortable with both your as well as our expectations in advance
  • to ensure each vendor is properly authorized to deliver their goods and services for you and your guests to the highest level of quality possible on your event day
  • to ensure that our property rules and standards are upheld  
  • our property receives the same conscientious respect and care that is an accepted standard with our current vendor partners. 



WE DO NOT ALLOW THE USE OF DISPOSABLE PLATES AND FLATWARE FOR RECEPTIONS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF:

DISPOSABLE HARD PLASTIC BAR GLASSES

SMALL HARD PLASTIC DESSERT PLATES AND FORKS FOR DESSERT BUFFET ONLY
