Fresh.Local.Good + Erika were absolutely wonderful to work with, and were nothing but professional and kind throughout the entire hectic wedding planning process. Up until hours before the reception started and we thought the rental company forgot to provide the silverwear (which they had not, we just couldn't find them easily), Erika immediately offered to let us use their silverwear free of charge.

The food: Delicious. So many comments from guests about all of the dishes served, although the mac and cheese and lavender lemonade did get the most comments.

Service: Great. I never really noticed any of the service staff throughout the entire evening, which i think means they did a wonderful job! They were non-intrusive, answered questions when asked and responded to requests. What more could you ask for?

Prep-Time: My husband and I had started working with Alex last year, but were then transferred to work with Erika, who is amazing! She is a ball of calming energy and I had every bit of faith in her that the job would be done well, and it was. Nothing is more important in planning a wedding then in being able to TRUST your vendors, because when you trust them, you don't have to think about it anymore. And that my friends, is gold.

The Fresh.Local.Good team did an amazing job at our event at the Pole Barn at Summerfield Farms. The venue provided a beautiful setting for a summer dinner. The ample space offered many different gathering areas and the handsome landscaping added to the relaxing country theme of the evening.
My guests all commented on the great food and the excellent service. They were especially fond of the grilled corn (a great recommendation).
Their attention to detail was greatly appreciated. They did an excellent job of keeping us on track without every rushing us.
I look forward to having them plan and cater my next event.

Erika and FLFG were wonderful to work with! Prior to the wedding, Erika was available for my millions of questions and always willing to accommodate my schedule and requests. The food was outstanding- many of the guests commented on how great everything tasted. The food presentation and decor were absolutely gorgeous- it fit seamlessly with the theme of my wedding. Erika did a great job of grasping the theme and wedding colors as I described as evidenced by how perfectly everything went together. Could not have asked for a better experience, I highly recommend Erika and FLFG!

What an amazing experience we had with Fresh Local Good. The food was unique, original, and delicious. Even more important to us than how the food tasted, was the great service that we received from start to finish. We had the opportunity of being the first couple to get married at their brand new venue, and it exceeded our expectations. The team from FLG truly made the process seamless. Working with Lee and our awesome wedding planners from, Coordinated Events, was such an amazing and easy experience. Every detail was perfect and the whole day was put together flawlessly. It made the happiest day of our lives perfect and we made some lifelong friends along the way!

When my husband and I began planning our wedding, we knew we wanted our reception to be something our guests would remember. Not only did we want the food to be delicious, we wanted it to reflect our tastes as a couple, while still having our guests leave happy. FLG helped bring that desire into fruition and made our day that much more special.
Fresh. Local. Good is a company that will totally work with you, regarding whatever it is you want or need, but they also know when to tell you that something isn't going to work. While hard to hear at first, in the end, it saved me a lot of trouble. Lee Comer and her staff know the right questions to ask to ensure that everyone understands what needs to happen to make this day go by without a hitch, or if there is a hitch, that they they know exactly how to fix it without you ever noticing.
FLG also worked with our food preferences, made creative changes to cater to our pescatarian needs, and were all around a nice "fit" for our rustic/eclectic wedding, without it seeming forced.
My husband and I were hoping for a memorable reception and I can honestly say that FLG helped us pull that off.

Kim L. helped me host a wonderfully received rehearsal dinner party. From visiting the restaurant and having our meal choices specially cooked for us to her flexibility with the dates and cancellation policy with the possibility of our son's deployment overseas.
Our guests are still talking about the delicious meal. I appreciated her guidance, expertise, and insight. Kudos to the chefs and their crew for a delicious meal that was bountiful.
You can't go wrong by choosing FLG and know that you are helping local farmers and the environment due to their ecological, farm to table business plan.

The Iron Hen was a great vendor because they enjoy their work and made all our decisions so much easier plus they thought of things we hadn't thought of ahead of time. The little details were fun for the guests to enjoy. Kim was particularly nice to work with throughout the entire process. She always had a smile and positive outlook and was always available for our questions.
The bride loved all her suggestions. The parties should all be this much fun for everyone !

I'm so glad I found this caterer. I live out of state, so communication was very important. They worked with me to create a menu that suited my taste as well as the wedding theme and made sure I was aware of any missing details I failed to think of when planning. Not only did they provide linen and place setting rentals, but the set up was done just the way I wanted. I had a lot of DIY details that I wanted incorporated and I only had to provide them with instructions and they worked to fit them into the catering plan, including our signature drink. The food was excellent and my only regret was that I didn't get to eat much of it during the wedding, but not really a problem, as the chef provides generous servings during the consultation. At the end of the night, they package leftovers, so be prepared to enjoy them for your first week of marriage! Overall, I don't think things could have went any better.

We had a good experience with the caterer even throughout their change of staffing during the contract phases. There were additional prices through the different staffing but Alex was able to explain why the additions were needed. The food was delicious. Guests thought it was good. They were accommodating with last minute changes. However, last minute venue catering charge was added that had not been discussed prior to the day before the wedding. Wish we were notified of this charge prior since we were trying to work within a budget.

We had a plated dinner for our reception. We were disappointed in the crab cake, which had been very good at the tasting, but very pleased with the chicken and salad. The mac and cheese was okay but the mashed sweet potatoes were unremarkable. The set up of the beverage stations were great and the service seemed good. However, we heard several accounts of the wait staff eating our desserts when some guests did not receive any. On the day of the wedding one of the catering staff snapped at my husband which was unnecessary and after the wedding we had no follow up regarding if we were pleased with their services.

F.L.G. did the catering for our wedding. We had to select from a list of recommended vendors. We met with F.L.G. and were excited about the food and our menu. Every change that was made a new rental was added on (that was forgotten initially). It was very stressful to look in detail at each time the contract changed adding hundreds here and there for yet another glass that was forgotten. In the end, my mother and I were able to find one of our first contracts where the food was priced per person and it had gone up $2 pp on the newest contract. The price was changed somewhere in the process for the same food and we had to dig for the mistake. Cocktail hour we had served hors d'oeurves. My immediate family recalled after that they were never offered more than one selection and only one time. That is upsetting still. One of the details I was super excited about was that we had old wooden PEPSI crates that were to be lined with some sort of paper and the hors d'oeurves would be served out of them. I didn't realize at the time as I was not offered hors d'oeurves (my wedding planner finally snagged my husband and I a few), but the crates were not used for serving. I find that just weird and upsetting. I had heard how F.L.G. was so great about how they set up the food to look so pretty. Reception comes and the food is flat on the serving tables in chaffing dishes with NO decoration or any height changes. Just food in silver dishes. If we hadn't opted to have my florist make a large arrangement to go near the food it was have been even more unappealing of a setup. On the positive side, the food was really quite good. Several guests commented about the quality and taste of the food. The presentation of the salads pre-plated on the tables was a great idea for the quests to walk into when they arrived at the reception. The pricing was reasonable for the quality of the food, but the presentation and focus to my requests for details was seriously lacking.

I was initially very excited to use Iron Hen/Fresh Local Good for my wedding reception catering. After eating at their restaurant and meeting with their staff, we felt like this was overwhelmingly the best choice. However, the week of the wedding, the coordinator assigned to us (who had changed during the process of my planning) seemed to be avoiding us -- never returning phone calls, etc. The food at the reception fell a bit flat -- with a strong difference between what we had at the tasting and what was presented at the wedding. Nothing was seasoned well, which was very disappointing.

Worse, was the report from several others involved in the wedding (band, florist, etc.) that the event coordinator for the wedding was extremely rude to everyone, even cursing loudly while setting up for the reception. My mother was very embarrassed to feel that she'd put other vendors in a situation where they were exposed to such rude and disrespectful behavior - especially surrounding a wedding.

Also, they offered cake cutting, for a $75 fee. Out of ease, we opted for this, as we didn't want to ask a family member or friend to take on this task. However, it was very obvious that the coordinator had no experience or knowledge of cake cutting, as she literally hacked up my cake into huge, ugly pieces. Also somewhat embarrassing.

I would encourage you to think twice before hiring this caterer.
