Ann Brunson is your tour guide to Chanteclaire Farm and your wonderful event.  She meets with each client and walks them through every stage of their special day, giving sage advice and brainstorming ideas along the way.  

Ann has been especially fond of the Farm since she planned her daughter's wedding here and got to know the staff.  She now helps others glide through the event planning process in a way that keeps stress low and excitement high. Her elegant approach to planning ensures a smooth experience for everyone in attendance.


Leigh Clarke is the owner and proprietor of Chanteclaire Farm. After living in Washington, DC, New York, and across Europe, Leigh moved to Garrett County and purchased the farm from a French native. Her years abroad exposed Leigh to the European penchant for fine food, elegant settings, and the art of spending time with friends. 

Chanteclaire Farm reflects all of these qualities, and captured Leigh’s heart the moment she set foot on it. Since then, she has wasted no time adding her own taste in fine furnishings and elegant menus. She runs the farm with a staff of 10.
