    Outstanding food and service

    Simply Fresh catered my daughter-in-law's baby shower brunch last weekend, and they were wonderful. The food was outstanding and displayed elegantly. The staff was professional and extremely attentive. And when they left, my house was left spotless. I highly recommend Buffy and her team.

    Wonderful Experience

    We had a wonderful experience working with Simply Fresh. Everything from the tasting to selecting linens and silverware to the night of our wedding was great. Jocelyn was exceptionally organized and was a constant assurance that everything would be just fine - and it was!

    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.....!
