For centuries, the land now known as Heritage Farms has remained a slice of Old Florida cutoff from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Today, the 54-acre parcel of land boasts two lakes brimming with bass, catfish and blue gill and regular sightings of ocean birds like osprey and sand crane visiting from the Atlantic while bee hives, a fire pit and hundreds of bay trees, maple trees and Nuttall oaks dot the landscape. Surrounded by Fort Matanzas State Park, it’s easy to see why Heritage Farms is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered.
Acquired in 2018 by local St. Augustine resident Chris Shee, a fifth-generation Floridian who purchased the property as a legacy to his family, it’s been only a few years since Heritage Farms started hosting events. The property’s main structure, a 7,000-square-foot barn, was built in 2014 by Joe and Cindy Tringali and has quickly become one of the most sought-after venues in Northeast Florida.
The owners of Tringali Barn at Heritage Farms welcome you to celebrate life’s milestones on one of the most pristine pieces of land in Northeast Florida. With a mature canopy of trees, diverse wildlife and modern amenities, The Barn (as it’s affectionately called) will remain in the Shee family for generations to come while being shared with residents and visitors looking for a slice of Old Florida as the backdrop for their special event.
It all started in a barn
In 2014, the Tringali Barn was built with modern comforts and amenities while maintaining the rustic charm of the land that surrounds it. The original owners, Joe and Cindy Tringali, were tirelessly searching for a wedding venue for their daughter, Brittany, when they decided to build the spacious venue that is now known as Tringali Barn. Hundreds of events later, the Tringali Barn at Heritage Farms has become a much sought-after event space in Northeast Florida for its natural landscape and relaxed and romantic setting.
