Our Mission

At 5 Family Ranch, our event venue celebrates the love of family. Our mission is to make your wedding day the first of many cherished blessings.


Our Story

Tom Carlson and his wife Melanie, along with their three children, have lived and grown up in the Wabasso area. As part of a large family, they frequently attend weddings, some of which have taken place in stunning event venues similar to 5 Family Ranch. These experiences left a lasting impression on them and ignited a desire to create a similar haven close to home, founded on family-centric values.


Tom shared his vision with his family, who were all enthusiastic and supportive of the idea. In a matter of a few short months, with the help of four of Melanie's siblings, 5 Family Ranch, LLC came to fruition. Our goal is to offer a distinctive and unforgettable experience to the Southwest Minnesota region, as we believe in sharing the same values with our clients as we do with our own family.

Mel and Tom Carlson, primary owners of 5 Family Ranch, happy to share 5 Family Ranch with others.
