In need of a healthy, satisfying dinner after a long day of work? No time to shop or cook?

Let The Farmstead Table help you out! 

We shop for the freshest ingredients, prepare meals in your home, and refrigerate or freeze the meals for you. We’ll provide you with everything you need, including to-go containers and proper re-heating instructions. We also enjoy preparing meals for the whole family, so any of our menus can be adapted for children’s smaller appetites or unique dietary preferences.

Sign up for a meal plan according to your own schedule and needs! Interested in starting with once-a-month special occasion meals? How about weekly “date night” meals to heat & eat on those nights when you get home late after a long day, but still want a healthy, homemade meal? We also do daily, family-style menus to keep everyone happy and healthy, freeing up your time for the things you actually enjoy. Our clients have shared their appreciation for our flexibility and have raved about our fresh, flavorful dishes. Plus, if your plans change last minute, we’ll happy provide you with a voucher to reschedule when it works for you!

"We hired Chef Kaitlyn to cater our annual Christmas wine parties. Kaitlyn developed an incredible menu of French food that paired perfectly with the wines we had selected. The food was spectacular and our guests were very impressed by Kaitlyn’s menu and her obvious culinary skill. And they especially enjoyed meeting the chef and talking to her about her culinary life. When one guest arrived and notified us that she was vegan - something we were not aware of previously - Kaitlyn went to the kitchen and prepared a vegan alternative on the spur of the moment. Our guest was surprised and very grateful! We will not hesitate to hire Kaitlyn again to cater our wine parties - in fact, we get the feeling that our guests will so look forward to what Kaitlyn will cook for us next year, that they may not come if Kaitlyn doesn’t cook the food!"
