Chris is seriously talented and you won't regret booking him as your caterer. My husband and I live in Washington DC but were planning a Vermont fall wedding. Because we lived so far away we did most of our planning from afar and never actually met Chris or tried his food before we booked him, but it was one of the best decisions we made.
We are big foodies who believe in sustainability and responsible sourcing. Just taking a look at his menu and food philosophy was enough to sell us, but seeing all of his five star reviews truly convinced us.
Chris allowed us to come up with some fun ideas of our own for food, but we relied on his expertise a lot and just let him do his thing. We paid him extra to rent linens and flatware etc which was so worth it.
We took a trip up to Vermont a few months before our wedding to attend a friend's wedding, walk our venue, and do a tasting. As fate would have it, Chris and his team catered the rehearsal dinner and Sunday brunch of our friend's wedding a few days before our actual tasting and the bride and groom were jealous we got him for our actual wedding day. Everything was crazy good. Once we went to our tasting, we were literally skipping to his restaurant with excitement.
The day of the wedding the food was off the chain. We had chicken and waffles, venison skewers, squash soup, pulled pork, roast beef with horseradish sauce, mixed root veggies, and autumn salad. During our photos, people were running out to us saying "holy shit! have you had these chicken and waffles?!" They. Were. So. Good! Like not just catering good, but good, good!
The meat was perfectly cooked, sauces were like crack, and even the veggies were simple but phenomenal. His staff was great and attentive. He was a pleasure to work with, I only wish I had time to eat more on my wedding day!
The icing on the cake, two days after our wedding friends were still texting us about how good the food was. "I seriously had a pork-gasam!" Book Chris!

Chris and the Lazy Farmer crew catered our rehearsal dinner event. The did a spectacular job. The food was fantastic and beautifully presented! Our guests were thoroughly impressed and raved about the food all weekend.
There was more than enough food to go around - still eating the leftovers and feeding family with it! Thanks!
People also loved having the food truck/camper. A great touch!
They are very professional - from appetizers to clean up!
I highly recommend Chris for any event .
thanks Chris for helping us host an amazing dinner.

We loved working with the Lazy Farmer! Right from the beginning, Chris was responsive and very flexible. He worked up numerous quotes and options for us, allowing lots of customization to make it work. The price is very affordable given the quality of the food and Chris is a very straight shooter about the price. He gave us insights about the best way to do a buffet and had lots of other tips that helped everything run smoothly. We choose to do a non-traditional meal, tacos, and got RAVE reviews from the guests. I would use Chris and his team again in a heartbeat.
