Simply Fresh = Simply the Best. Creative, unique, great (and easy) to work with. No cookie cutter event planning going on here. They take the time to really listen. Highly recommended.

Amazing dinner, wonderful planner
Working with Simply Fresh for our wedding caterer and event planner Nicole Ryan made everything easy and delicious. Fresh delicious buffet with salmon and melt -in -mouth tenderloin and her decorating crew were simply the best from start to finish . They are flexible on everything.

Excellent caterer of our event
Simply Fresh Events catered our daughter's Bat Mitzvah at Rocklands Farm. They did an amazing job. Geoff and Jocelyn were very patient with us as we went back and forth on the menus and the decor. They were very creative in making an event unique to our family and time of year. The weekend was forecast to be very rainy and Geoff worked hard to make sure everything would be prepared for the weather and that our guests would be comfortable. At the event itself, the food was fantastic! The staff were very invested in making sure the event was special and ran smoothly. It was a pleasure working with Geoff and Jocelyn and they truly delivered a wonderful evening for us and our guests.
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.....!
From beautiful, fresh food to exacting planning, Simply Fresh Events knows what it takes to make a wedding come out perfectly. I especially love their attention to detail and desire to achieve their clients' goals at the actual event. From creating the perfect menu to executing a flawless wedding, Simply Fresh Events is a caterer you want on your team.
