Weston Red Barn Farm
A trip to the Weston Red Barn Farm is like visiting a turn of the century working farm.
In the spirit of preserving the American dream of farming, the Red Barn Farm offers visitors the opportunity to experience a real working farmstead. We feature traditional farm animals and crops. In addition to the working farm, we offer school tours, a country store featuring our fresh produce, facilities for weddings and bonfire/hayride events and a fall festival where families can come pick pumpkins and apples, take a hayride and enjoy the country.
You'll love the authentic shopping experience at the Weston Red Barn Farm in Northwest Missouri.The farm is open spring through fall, allowing visitors the chance to experience our farm through the changing seasons. In the spring and summer, our country store is a daily farmer's market, selling locally grown produce picked at its peak. In the fall, we celebrate the harvest being brought in and offer visitors the chance to have some old-fashioned farm fun. Hours vary according to the season so please check the calendar or call ahead before coming to visit.

Steve Frey purchased the land that would become Weston Red Barn Farm in 1989. This was the realization of a 10-year dream for Steve, as he had vivid memories of visits to his uncle's farm in Missouri as a child and wanted to recreate that experience for others.
He restored the old buildings on the farm and built new ones, using old materials. He also planted an orchard full of apple trees for picking. In 1990, Weston Red Barn Farm opened for business.
Today, Steve and his wife Cindy own and operate the farm. They have two children, Donovan and Amy, and three grandchildren, Isabella, Addison, and Amelia.
Their mission has been to provide an educational experience for children and a place for families to enjoy an authentic farm setting in a safe, peaceful and noncommercial environment.
In 2012, over 12,000 children visited the farm with their classmates and thousands of families came to purchase peaches, apples, corn and pumpkins. We hope that you will bring your family to our farm and enjoy "a day at the farm for learning and fun!"
In 2008, Steve and Cindy Frey were honored by the North American Farmers' Direct Marketing Association (NAFDMA) with the organizations Direct Farm Marketer of the Year Award.
Farms are nominated for this prestigious honor by their peers, and the finalists then make 30 minute presentations before the NAFDMA conference. Farm marketers from throughout North America in attendance at the conference then select the winning farm by ballot.
