Against a scenic backdrop of rambling fields and orchards, a rustic sunset meal awaits in the barn at J&D Farms. Owners Danny and Jana McEachern, the area’s well-known ambassadors of hospitality, host the party and show what they do best.

The sprawling grounds of J&D Farms, near Gadsden, Alabama, comprise exceptional full-service outbuildings for weddings and private events. The picturesque scenery also includes winding gravel pathways, vegetables gardens, a pool terrace, and apple, plum, and peach orchards.

A small gathering of friends under a sturdy tree calls for a casual predinner spread featuring a pitcher of iced Hard-Cider Punch, made with spiced rum, rosemary simple syrup, pecan liqueur, and hard pear cider.

A plate of artisan cheeses served with crackers, honey, and seasonal fruit makes a tasty pairing for cocktails or wine.


Amidst the pink-amber glow of sunset, friends experience the robust essence of the season inside the McEacherns’ inviting barn, where the scent of fresh-cut hay from the loft sweetens the brisk night air. Dinner guests typically linger for hours, mesmerized by this enchanting venue that holds so many memories and happy beginnings. A decadent dessert of Pumpkin-White-Chocolate Soufflé Cake complements an unforgettable experience.
