Green Your Wedding — Green Your Life! High Mill Park; A Green Site

Looking for a unique way to add a little “green” to your wedding?  Start with your site!  Check out High Mill Park in Massillon, OH.  Located about half an hour south of Akron, and convenient to the entire Akron – Canton area, High Mill Park is a functioning organic farm operating sustainably in a serene and natural setting that hosts beautiful fêtes of all kinds on their fourteen acre plot.  The farm is home to a wide variety of livestock — including sheep, chickens, geese, goats, and more — as well as fruit and vegetable crops and lush gardens of flowers and flowering trees.  The farm produces meatfruits, vegetables, and herbs for sale locally as a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  Buying and supporting Ohio farms keeps dollars in the local community and reduces the pollution caused by shipping food from across the country.  What a great way to celebrate your wedding!

You won’t have to worry about chemical weed killers or pesticides at High Mill Park — they don’t use them!  All wedding packages come with recycling and composting services for party waste from your wedding reception, and there are a variety of green upgrade options to choose from, including vintage repurposed plates and linens to reduce paper waste, LED lighting to conserve energy, as well as seasonal table decorations and wedding favors.  Based on the time of year or your wedding colors, you guests could enjoy baskets of fresh-picked wildflowers, colorful heirloom tomatoes, potted flowers, or organic apples!

High Mill Park is glad to accommodate outside help, working closely with guest rental companies, catering staff, and licensed bartenders to ensure a smooth-running event, and can provide stainless steel buffets, if needed.

High Mill Park has two unique sites for your event, perfect for both a large or small wedding ceremony or reception; however, whichever site you choose to use, the entire grounds are exclusively yours for the day.  Another wedding at the location you are using will not be scheduled to ensure privacy for your wedding and your reception.  The first, a renovated barn, holds approximately 80 people and features a rustic barn wood surround with a clean cement floor, opening out to a fire ring near the surrounding woodland.  It is seated about halfway up the hill and has a beautiful view of nearby lakes.

The second, larger site is a pavilion-style structure with a capacity of approximately 200 guests.  The pavilion borders a private stream on one side, woodland on the other side, a nearby volleyball court, and a fire ring.  Refrigerators are available for this area.  Both sites have electricity, lighting, and access to the restrooms.
