    Definitely work with Simply Fresh!

    We really liked our experience with Simply Fresh. Of all the caterers we reached out to at the beginning of the process, they were the most responsive and the most willing to tailor their proposal to match what we wanted. They also offered us a wedding coordinator as a part of the catering package, which we opted for and would highly recommend. Our coordinator was so helpful and made many great suggestions for us throughout the planning process. The food was delicious and the menu came together really nicely. It felt like their big focus was making our wedding day as easy for us as possible, and that attention and dedication was evident. Highly recommend.

    Fantastic Experience

    Geoff, Jocelyn and their team were amazing to work with. Due to COVID and changes to our wedding we also had to change caterers last minute and they worked with us to quickly develop a new menu, plan all of the details and made our night incredibly special. The meal was delicious and beautifully plated and the individual app plates were a hit with everyone. Jocelyn took care of all of the small details of setting our menus, place cards, and floating candles to make our dinner venue look amazing. She even offered to bustle my dress as soon as we arrived so that I could start enjoying the night!

    The staff was pleasant to work with that night and were very quick with clearing plates and glasses for the next course. I would highly recommend Simply Fresh for your wedding or event.
    We are so grateful for them being able to cater our wedding on such short notice and extremely impressed with how beautifully everything turned out.

    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.....!
