Our Story...

In the spring of 2001 what was previously the LaRosh Egg farm, and at one time a dairy farm, was put up for auction. We purchased that farm in the hopes that we could, once again, make it something wonderful.
 
Years of neglect had taken it's toll and the farm was in sad condition. In 1998, an F1 tornado had ripped through the property and had compounded the, already many, repairs. The massive chicken house, an area used to house chickens and harvest eggs during the LaRosh operation, had been stripped of almost all of it's siding. One entire side was completely blown out. The roof of every building was in need of at least some repair; some needed to be completely replaced. One of the grain bins was damaged beyond repair and has since been converted to the three season banquet space.


The most significant structure, the barn, had several large holes in it's roof. Some the size of a small car. Because of someone's creativity, we were able to salvage the barn. After the tornado damage, someone had spread out a tarp over the floor of most of the 4th level. It was used to catch the rain water that made it through the damaged roof. We truly believe that this act saved the barn and for that we are thankful. We haven't been able to determine the exact date of the barn's original construction but it is certain that the building was here long before most of us and has since been a long-standing landmark in our community. So many people remember coming to LaRosh Egg farm to purchase eggs with their family. Our goal from the beginning has been to make Proven Ground a place where family and friends could, again, enjoy the simple things together.


An incredible amount of work has been done to get the farm buildings where they are today.  We have converted the bottom floor of our barn into a unique and intimate banquet space.  It's absolutely perfect if you are looking for something out of the ordinary.  We offer unique services that are harder to find at other banquet sites such as bonfires and hayrack rides. It's the perfect place for a wedding, organizational meeting, or other type of celebration.
