    An awesome experience!

    We hired Simply Fresh to cater an Open House to celebrate a new location for our company. Buffy and Brian we helpful, friendly, extremely patient, and helped us put on a wonderful event. I received countless compliments on the food and the politeness of the servers. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer in the DC area.

    Graduation Party

    Buffy was so responsive and was flexible with the constant changes I was making to the time, menu, etc. Brian and his staff was professional and easy to work with as well. The food and presentation was wonderful and all the guests were impressed with food and service.

    Geoff Barker and his wife Jocelyn have worked on many many events here at Rocklands Farm. They bring a whole host of talents; not only fantastic food, but the ability to spend time with each client to find out exactly what they want their event to look like. Geoff is very well organized, and gets things done. Jocelyn is the creative side of the team, helping pull the perfect look from our collection of farm "props". She is a great "time-keeper", and moves things along in a timely fashion. She knows our unique property, knows where everything is kept, knows how to make things work! She always has a smile for her co-workers, and makes the event fun for those of us working behind the scenes. When Geoff and Jocelyn are the caterers on my property, I can really relax, and know that everything will be happily ever after.....!
