About Heartland Farms

We are a working farm growing Strawberries which are in season during June when we harvest tons of fresh strawberries. Many acres of Pumpkins are grown for the fall Halloween season.  In September and October, many thousands are sold at the farm. We are located at 5111 Osage Rd, Waterloo on a blacktop road at the Northeast side of Waterloo. We have been in business since 1990 and have many strong ties to the Cedar Valley Community.

Wedding Ceremony Platform is beautifully surrounded by flowers during the summer months. A picturesque setting for the couple as they join together in marriage. Seating is available for up to 200 guests. The Party House (30’ by 90’) is available if the weather forces ceremony inside. Reception can also be held in the Party House with an additional fee.

Our Tree House Slide Platform or our “John Deere” slide platform could also be used for the ceremony if desired. A pillow bouncer (40’ by 60’) is available for use or as entertainment. Modern restrooms are provided and there is a PA system for music or to carry the ceremony audio. Wi-Fi is provided for your use.  Plenty of parking provided


Decorations are up to the wedding party and can be attached to fence, platform or other farm structure but please do no damage and decorations must be picked up. Staples, tape and such removed, leave it as you found it. Please ask to use items that we have on the farm like steel wheels, bales of straw, hay racks or old tractors. 

The option to arrange for your own catering and or provide your own beer and wine is a great cost-saving feature at our farm
