My family is my driving force behind Red Acre Barn. I am the owner, Sherry Peterson, along with my husband and partner, Kyle Peterson, sister and partner, Holly Burgin, and brother in law and partner, Jason Burgin. I am a mom of two gorgeous children, Jaxon and Knox. I grew up in Indianola, loved being creative my whole life, and have always had an infinite love for art, sports, and design. Like all things we love, Red Acre Barn was born from a whim, nurtured by passion, and grew from the unexpected, unpredictable twists that life has gifted us along the way. In February 2013, we discovered a love for old barns. At the time, I was running my own photography business, and because of my success, our vision developed into the pursuit of growth and expansion to include a venue.
Giving is fundamental to our business; we want to help change lives. Together with our customers, we’re hoping to transform wedding bookings into a force for good around the world. The premise is simple, but the potential to help others is huge. When you have a wedding at Red Acre Barn, we’ll donate money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.
