New Leaf’s Story
New Leaf Farm’s story starts with the owners, Dan & Tara Waitkus.
Tara had always dreamed of owning a hobby farm with a barn for horses, so in 2014 they began searching for the perfect rural setting. In this process, they learned of a different and trending use for a barn…weddings!
After searching for just the right location, house and barn, and not finding the combination of all three, they decided to purchase 30 acres in South Canaan, Pa & build a barn in a hay field at the back of the property.
Construction started in May of 2018 & in Spring of 2019, the barn at New Leaf Farm was complete! Ever evolving, they continue to add to the venue as new ideas are inspired by the beautiful countryside that surround them. Dan & Tara live in a small brick farmhouse on the property & enjoy caring for the animals on the farm including horses Calvin & Bullseye, fainting goats Fern & Parsnip, a small flock of poultry & their dogs, Reggie & Violet.
