The Story 

Starting out as a humble patch of blueberry bushes, owners John and his wife have welcomed families every year since 2016 to indulge in the epitome of summertime fun: blueberry picking! The sweet scent of fresh produce and warmth in the air inspired them to expand the property into a wedding venue in addition to the farm. 



Boasting 24 acres of farm space as well as both indoor and outdoor choices for ceremony and reception spaces, Hadden Estate is situated in the sweeping green pastures of Watkinsville. This is is merely a ten-minute drive from the heart of downtown Athens. This short drive away from downtown is ideal for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle whilst still having access to city conveniences. The grounds are maintained year-round and each wedding booking will be entirely exclusive and tailored to the couples’ preferences. There are limited dates each season for weddings as the staff at Hadden Estate are committed to perfecting every detail for an unforgettable experience. 



Not only do weddings hosted at Hadden Estate of Damn Good Dawgs Farm get to enjoy the farm acreage, but they also include access to several property amenities. Choose between four charming indoor and outdoor locations for the ceremony to take place. Furthermore, the 5,000 sq ft. reception hall is accompanied by a luxurious bridal suite and stylish grooms’ suite. Get ready and freshen up with these onsite facilities, named the Cottage and Carriage House respectively. Accessibility features, such as wheelchair and golf cart availability, are included for maximum comfort and ease. Take a breath of fresh air in the courtyard or pon area and admire all the greenery Athens has to offer. Lastly, the beloved blueberry farm is also open to the wedding party throughout the length of the venue rental. Incorporate blueberry picking into the wedding itinerary and have an afternoon of fun with an activity that is sure to delight all ages!
