We picked FLG food group for our wedding reception. Everybody gave us great feedback on the food and the staff was very friendly. Overall the communication with Alma from FLG was good during the preparation process. She was very helpful and would answer promptly to the thousands of emails we sent. The flank steak was our favorite entree and the gouda mac&cheese was so "good-ah".

Amazing food, Amazing Service, Simply Amazing company! I absolutely loved working with this Fresh.Local.Good food group. Our wedding guests are still talking about how wonderful the food was. Alma was the person I worked with for a year planning our wedding and she is awesome. She never got irritated when I changed my mind a thousand times and kept me in the loop with updated proposals each time I would add and take away things. I highly recommend!

My husband and I knew we'd love the food from FLG because we LOVE the Iron Hen, but we were blown away on the day of our event! FLG Food Group delivered PHENOMENAL food, staffing, and rentals, and made sure we had everything go smoothly on the day of our wedding. We had plates of the cocktail food waiting for us for after we were introduced, and our dinner food plates were made for us immediately when dinner started. They even got us a new hot plate of food later in the night to make sure we had plenty to eat the whole time! The only issue we had the entire time was some issues with slow responses to initial emails, and a few hiccups that were the result of the new transition with their affiliation to the venue we were at. But I should mention that when we got closer to the event date, the responses were very quick and we had no issues as the date approaches, and the few issues we had due to the transition "growing pains" were quickly remedied without any meltdowns! They made sure we had low-stress for planning, and a no-stress wedding day! I can't sing their praises highly enough! Definitely recommend them! Also, Lee Comer is fantastic!

All of their food is SO GOOD. Just go to their restaurant, Iron Hen Cafe to see for yourself if you're just starting to consider them. We did salad AND 3 sides just because we couldn't choose, everything they make is just so yummy.
Tammy Tuck was easy to work with and so nice! So thankful to her for texting me pictures of all the random things I wanted to see before making final decisions (plates, cake stands, napkin colors, etc). :) We also decided to do banana pudding for our guest's dessert (we did a small cutting cake for ourselves through Maxie B's). First of all, the pudding was delicious. Second of all, I had a very specific vision for the kinds of little glass jars I wanted them in, and to have the whip cream with a little mini nilla wafer topping each one. And FLG delivered! They were SO CUTE. And the way it was all set up on the dessert table (I gave them the freedom to just "make it pretty"), was so great too! I was very very happy!!
Another thing that made me so happy was that someone (possibly our planner or possibly our day-of person with FLG) made sure my groom and I had a plate full of food sitting on our table ready for us as soon as we entered the reception. That was great! The bartenders were lovely, everything was set up nicely at the bars, the pours were generous, and they always made sure my groom and I had a drink if we wanted one!
The only negative thing I can say is that when the servers brought a couple of our hors d'Oeuvres over to my groom and I between photos during cocktail hour, they were all cold. I hope and pray they weren't severing them like that to our guests (I wouldn't think so!!), but I never heard anyone complain about that so, hopefully it was just those few!! They were still adorable (the mini red bliss potatoes and shrimp & grits shooters) and still yummy regardless.
THANK YOU to Tammy and everyone at FLG for a smooth and delicious wedding! :)

Booking with Summerfield Farms meant we were automatically paired with FLGFG. Thankfully, Tammy Tuck became the main point of contact for us and also ended up being our captain for the wedding. She was so kind and considerate, she equally cared about the overall concept as well as the little details (the ones that no one ever notices but keeps things cohesive and smooth). She was always willing to explore the best option for our plans and never settled with the most obvious choice. She allowed us to customize our menu and constantly edited our proposal up until the final weeks. When we first met with Tammy I will say the tasting plates were good, but not great. I thought the meat was a little stiff which concerned me. However, we have eaten at the Iron Hen (their man location) almost every time we go to Greensboro and the food has surpassed all expectations.

The day of our wedding I relinquished all reigns to Tammy, Summerfield and my day of coordinator knowing that all the plans were set and ready to go. Entering the tent was an amazing experience. The food smelled amazing, the tables looked incredible and the staff was efficient and welcoming. I was blown away by the service we received at the reception. Tammy set our plates, filled our glasses and took care of all of our guests needs. I'm certain there was chaos in the background but on the surface all was smooth and to a tee. Even at the end of the night Tammy was looking out for us as a few items were missing. She was diligent and persistent all the way through the night. She promises to cut staff hours when needed and is extremely efficient, she is not stretching the truth.

I would recommend Tammy and her team for any occasion and would trust her to carry out any bride's vision for her big day. I also, truly recommend the food from this catering company and restaurant. I cannot count the number of guests who mentioned how much they despise wedding food, but were going back for seconds.

I was so super impressed with Fresh. Local. Good. Food Group! They were so flexible in allowing us to personalize the menu and amounts of items for our wedding day, and were really affordable too! Kathryn Hubert was awesome to work with, and they did a great job catering to our rustic outdoor wedding with no catering kitchen! The servers and bartenders were all very nice people and great to work with at our wedding as well. Unlike other caterers, they charge service fees per person per hour (and it is very reasonably priced, they started off budgeting us for 10 hours including set up and service and everything) so we even got a refund after the wedding! And oh my gosh the food!!! I have received so many compliments, and quite a few people have told me it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. We had 4 appetizers, then for dinner we had the brisket, Kentucky bourbon chicken, fire roasted vegetables, mac and cheese, and salad. It was all so delicious, we were getting compliments all night. They even made my husband and I plates so we didn't even have to go through the buffet. Our wedding was even an hour and half away and the dinner tasted like it was fresh brought out from the kitchen at the restaurant! I would highly recommend Fresh. Local. Good. Food Group to anyone who is looking to have fantastic food and service at an affordable price at their wedding! I would use them again in a heartbeat!!

Our wedding was at Summerfield Farms, so we didn't have a choice of catering companies. Thank goodness for that, because otherwise we might not have known about Fresh. Local. Good. food group. There were some issues with staff turnover, but that's the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars in all categories. We were too busy with work schedules to even have a tasting, so just left it to them to guide us to the best choices. We're still getting compliments on the food! It was fresh, well prepared, and seasoned just right. Even the picky kids liked it!

I chose to go with Fresh Local Food Group because of all of their excellent reviews; however I did not have a great experience. The food was delicious, but the coordinator I worked with was difficult to communicate with. I would have to send her several emails with the same questions before she would respond. In addition, after going over changes to the proposal, she would send me back a new proposal with only about half the changes made. This meant we had to go back and forth through email and phone many times, when one time should have been enough. And, even though I confirmed details about the menu multiple times, we were still given the wrong type of chicken. Again, the food was great, and I doubt any of my guests noticed, but the headaches the coordinator caused leading up to the wedding was not worth the great food.

We picked FLG based on their emphasis on presentation. Things began well and we were able to quickly nail down a budget and a menu. While initially good, our experience with them quickly tanked.

Our first walkthrough with them was canceled with a half hours notice after family had driven 1.5 hours. When we finally rescheduled our venue walkthrough, it took nearly a month to get a final proposal from her, after asking at least four times. When we finally got the proposal, the table & linen count was completely incorrect and the $1k accounting error that we had previously brought up with her was still wrong. When we got this, it was only 11 days before our wedding, leaving us scrambling to correct things that should have been taken care of weeks prior.

Three days before the wedding we got an email from her saying that she would not be at our wedding and would be sending someone in her place who we had never met, never spoken with, and whose contact info she did not provide, saying she would remain the point of contact. Despite attempts to contact her we never heard from her again before the wedding. She emailed us on our honeymoon to tell us they would be charging us more money, completely skipping over all of our emails about our dissatisfaction with the last minute change and our requests for contact info.

All of the little details, which were why we picked FLG and which we had discussed at length (I bought $100 in flowers to use around the buffet table) never happened because that info wasn't passed on to the guy who stepped in at the last minute.

To their credit the food was good. However, the whole experience in the weeks and months prior to the wedding and the utter lack of communication and coordination was incredibly stressful and a complete failure on their part. I would never recommend them to anyone.
