LOCAL INGREDIENTS. Memorable events. FOOD JUSTICE.
Heartwood is a chef-owned and operated catering company serving northern and central Vermont.
We’re currently booking into 2020.
1) Support small, regenerative farms. As often as possible, we source ingredients from our own farm and the farms of people we know and trust. Our menus are seasonal so we can source locally.
2) Build genuine relationships. Our goal is to create incredible food, communicate often and well, and go the extra mile for details, presentation, and quality. We are available to answer questions and make plans to make the process of hosting an event as easy as possible.
3) Justice. We hire locally and pay a living wage. We commit to food justice through actions and dollars.

"Meghan catered a rehearsal dinner for 45 people held at my house last September. I was a little apprehensive about hosting such a large party, but from the planning stages through to the clean-up, Meghan was delightful and helpful. The food was outstanding, the presentation beautiful, and everyone had a wonderful time. Meghan is a true professional and her calm demeanor made everything seem easy. I would happily recommend her to anyone planning a special event."
"Working with Meghan was one of the easiest parts of our wedding. She catered our rehearsal dinner and everyone raved about the food. We really wanted tacos, and Meghan turned out a spread that was packed full of amazing local products and little touches that elevated the food from good to fantastic. Meghan is really good at coming up with creative menus and tweaking them to suit individual tastes and needs. Not only was she able to work within our budget and modify things as needed, but she was also able to feed a crowd with a wide range of food allergies and keep everyone happy. [...] On top of the delicious food and high level of professionalism, Meghan is friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go to her again should the occasion arise!"

"Meghan has worked numerous events for us, including our yearly Festival of Farmhouse Ales. Whether she is working an event of a few hundred people, or setting up for our daily patrons, she is prepared and always has a smile on her face. Meghan uses fresh, local ingredients and provides a wonderful presentation and dynamic flavor profile."
