From farm-to-table to a table on the farm: JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes is proud to present our Whisper Creek Farm venue, a 7,000-square-foot fruit and vegetable garden with an adjoining 11,000-square-foot outdoor event space. It's truly a unique, authentic experience.


REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

Events at Whisper Creek Farm

A unique interactive and educational dining experience is yours to enjoy at this distinctive outdoor event venue, where guests are encouraged to peruse the garden and even pick and taste the products. Whisper Creek Farm hosts four types of events:

  • Plated dinners for groups of 100 or less, served by chefs right in front of guests
  • Family-style seasonal catering menus served at long communal tables with space for groups of up to 400 (seated) or 800 (reception)
  • Argentinian and Uruguayan outdoor barbeque grilling
  • An intimate Chef's Table with seating at a handcrafted wood table (and hammocks!) for up to 12, shaded by a large oak tree, the centerpiece of Whisper Creek Farm

This is not our first trip to the farm. To maintain Whisper Creek Farm, our hotel has again partnered with Bumper Crop, a Central Florida company that manages the resort's on-site apiary, producing honey used in dishes and spa treatments, as well as the Primo Organic Garden, a raised-bed garden producing herbs and produce for Melissa Kelly's Primo Restaurant at JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes.

Our Bountiful Harvest

Pedi-cabs or shuttle vans will chauffeur guests from the hotel to Whisper Creek Farm, which is located next to the sixth tee box on the Greg Norman-designed golf course and borders a peaceful nearby creek (the inspiration for the event venue's name). Surrounded by a perimeter of 120 pineapple plants, Whisper Creek Farm produces cucumbers, acorn squash, collard greens, avocado, mango, sweet potatoes, a variety of herbs, a pumpkin patch and much more. As is natural with its Central Florida location, the space also features eighteen seven-foot citrus trees, including tangerine, kaffir lime and kumquat varieties.

In addition to the vast garden, Whisper Creek Farm hosts resident bees in three hives to help in the pollination of the flowering plants and produce the Grande Lakes' signature nectar. Whisper Creek Farm events can be booked October through June, with evening affairs being particularly picturesque.
