Gary & Kristin
-Happily Ever After
Welcome to the Rurup Farm. Gary and Kristin Rurup built their 1940's inspired farmhouse in 2005, nestled in the base of Mt Rainier and the Bald Hills in Yelm, WA. Over the next several years they expanded their family of 7 by adopting four more children and welcoming seven (almost eight) grandchildren into their hearts. Their love of rural living naturally transformed into the farm life with the addition of chickens, goats, turkeys and an apple orchard.
The couple has always had a passion for Farmhouse design and an eye for transforming castaway furniture and common "junk" into works of art that people wanted to purchase.....and so it began. Rurupean Treasures was birthed from the Rurup Farm and a large number of customers and followers was soon established. New items are posted weekly on this site and available for purchase at the Yelm Farmer's Market....and other pop-up sale locations. The couple's second true love is entertaining on the Farm and giving people an opportunity to sit back, relax, and experience a little taste of the farm life.
With a little encouragement from friends and family, Gary and Kristin started doing Create Events on the Farm. where guests are given the opportunity to build, craft, and cook some of the family's favorites in a fun, relaxing environment. Finally, the RurupFarm is available as a destination venue for your special occasions with fewer than 160 guests. Do you want your wedding or party to be unique and memorable? Let the Rurup family coordinate everything from the venue set up, to catering, photography and music.
