Hi, we’re Lauren and Jem, a husband and wife team who relocated from the big city to live our dream of farming the land . We grow organic food and fresh cut flowers on our historic Indiana homestead, which will also serve as a beautiful & unique venue for weddings & events, starting in 2021. Our mission is to live intentionally while honoring the land and serving the local community.

We are a family-owned and operated farm located in Peru, Indiana

Host your wedding or event at Catey Heritage Farm

Our land and refurbished barn serve as a beautiful backdrop for your wedding or event. We should know…we ourselves were married here in 2019!


Opening 2021


Our story begins in Chicago, where we met and fell in love. Lauren was working as a teacher while Jem was an ex-philosopher-turned-mover. We began to dream up a property where we could be creative and fulfilled while living closer together and spending more time outside, while enriching our local community. In 2017, we moved to a historic homestead farm here in the Wabash River Valley. Our goal is to honor the farming traditions of the past and get back to those ways of living as much as possible.
