The Little Farm House — a unique and whimsical event space.
When I first stepped through the gates of “The Little Farm House,” I was transported into the most amazing tropical oasis. It was so lovely, it was actually hard to believe I was smack-dab in the middle of the Magic City, but I was. (More specifically, on the outskirts of Little Haiti alongside Miami’s Little River.)
The lush greenery, main house, six cabins, boathouse and myriad of farm animals make the place beyond enchanting and one of the most unique EVENT SPACES I’ve ever seen. Social gatherings, weddings, showers, parties, television and movie shoots, they do it all and…
While the place has definitely made a name for itself on a national level (hosting photo shoots for British Vogue, H&M and Urban Outfitters), its owner, Gabriella von Rosen, wants locals to know about “A Hidden Gem,” too.
“The Little Farm House,” which was built back in the 1920’s, is the epitome of Shabby Chic style mixed with a Key West kind of charm. In other words, it’s my kind of place! It’s also used as an animal sanctuary, where furry friends are nursed to health and adopted into loving homes.
Every corner of the property is a new mystery waiting to be discovered: antique furniture, vintage decor, gorgeous chandeliers and the kind of natural peacefulness that relaxes the mind and calms the spirit.
When I was there I spotted a manatee in the river, petted Phoebe the baby goat and was curiously followed around by Becca, a spirited pot-belly pig. Not to mention the ducks, chickens, iguanas, five cats and a sweet rescue dog. The place is so big (almost an acre) the animals wander about virtually undetected.
I also explored the themed cabins (the bar and lounge were my favorite) and imagined what it would be like to live in the Main House (for me, that’s the ultimate compliment). “When can I move in?” I jokingly asked Gabby. She just smiled sweetly – I’m sure she gets that a lot.
Matching the boho, gypsy spirit of “A Hidden Gem” fashion-wise was easy with dresses designed by Tanya Marie. I adore the way she uses bold materials and rich textures; giving her pieces a creative pizazz you just don’t really see anymore. When you wear a dress made by Tanya Marie, you stand-out for all the right reasons.
The special moments in life are so few and far between, enjoying and capturing them at a place like the “Little Farm House” will make your memories all the more rare and unique and that’s why “A Hidden Gem” is one of my favorite things.
