Founded by two sisters, who love food and people. Their passion to make people feel at home and enjoy the company of others inspired them to start a catering business. The path eventually led to breaking ground at what we now call Pear Tree Estate.


What We Do.

As a team, we work hard to streamline the event process from start to finish. Pear Tree Estate is a full-service event venue. We have garnered a reputation for a beautifully balanced space that feels refreshingly modern and yet still true to our rural roots.

Based out of Champaign, IL our team has been a part of thousands of events, which has led us to develop and refine a seamless process to help our clients navigate each step. Our team collaborates from the first tour and the client tasting, to the logistics at a next step meeting, to easing the day of stress.

Why We Do It

We do this because life is short. Our time on earth needs to spent with people who we love. Life needs to be celebrated.

How We Do It



Whether you are planning your dream wedding, a corporate event or a small intimate event, Pear Tree Estate will be with you from start to finish. From your first tour to signing a contract, to meetings throughout the process including an L.A. Gourmet style tasting, we will be here to help streamline the event process.


The experience

The event experience starts with your first inquiry and we hope that the end of every event leads to a lifelong relationship. We work hard to make sure that every step of the way is enjoyable. You’ll never leave Pear Tree without a kind hello, a cold beverage and a warm cookie. After all, we thinks its important to treat others like you’d like to be treated.


the result

Every event that we host is unique. We love that our “jobs” are different every day. Our goal is for your guests to feel that everyone at Pear Tree Estate is an extension of your family or business when they walk through the front doors. We have done our jobs successfully if you are relaxed and enjoying the event.
