Meet your hosts!

Matilda's is owned and operated by Jane Schipp with the help of her four daughters, Tara, Brooke, Brittney and Megan (and we can't forget John!).


The story of the Kleiser Farm began in1864 and with the exception of the original 1800's barn (taken down by a tornado in 2015), we have restored the farmhouse and each of the original outbuildings back to their original glory over the last 13 years. The new barn, now known as "Matilda's", replicates the style of the original barn.

This property is one that our famiy has owned and loved for over 150 years, and we are excited for you to become a part of its story! Let us help you create that special space for your wedding, birthday, community event, family reunion - whatever you dream of - we can do it! We are a team of designers and planners and, while a family, we each have different styles and ideas that we'd love to share.
