Five generations ago the Murray family settled in Champaign County and continues the farming tradition today. With an inherent appreciation for the beauty and rich history of this area, we are bringing modern American celebrations back to the farm. Pear Tree Estate is excited to share the rustic beauty of the country from the comfort of an elegant space.

In 2006, the Murray sisters opened L.A. Gourmet Catering to share their passion for incredible food and unforgettable events with Central Illinois. While the staff specializes in creating custom events in unusual spaces, they are excited for the opportunity to create personalized events in a unique venue full of modern amenities.

Building Pear Tree Estate was a modern day “barn raising” that brought together family, neighbors and friends as a community to help two farmer’s daughters make their dream a reality. From rezoning to breaking ground, upholstering furniture to staining wood, creating art and building bars and signs, its foundation is filled with the sweat and tears of the community that created Pear Tree Estate.

Pear Tree Estate offers a beautiful canvas inside and out for your special event to be completely unique and easily planned with an onsite coordinator, elegant lighting, linens and chairs. It is a culmination of the highest quality catering, service staff and now a premier venue to make any event memorable.
