Farm to Fire
Open Fire Wedding Catering
locally sourced. made from scratch
We take great pride in using locally sourced ingredients from many farms in the Hudson Valley. From seasonal vegetables to sustainably raised meats, the best ingredients are the heart and soul of our food.
But sourcing great ingredients is just one piece of the puzzle.
Our culinary team makes almost all of the food from scratch on the day of your wedding.
We have a saying that we feel is very important - What happens between the farm and the table?
We have also always believed that wedding catering is a people business. You won’t see chef’s choice menus and packages with upcharges for substitutions.
Each menu is 100% customized just for the couple. We work closely with each couple to make their menu a reflection of their tastes and experiences.
From old family recipes to a favorite dish from their travels abroad, we allow them to create the entire menu.
To celebrate the ever changing world of food, we warmly welcome vegetarians and vegans to our family. We can make anything on our menu non meat or vegan.
We have also done entire weddings for vegan couples.
Brandon Snooks, executive chef
Growing up in the cattle country of Montana, there was always locally sourced food on our family table. From vegetables that my family grew in the garden to cattle raised on the land we farmed, there was no other way to eat in rural Montana. I honestly did not know that everyone didn't sit down to a farm to table experience for every meal. Seeing my grandmothers, mother, and many other "Farm Chefs" making the most of every piece of food available to them was commonplace. From canning to curing, the name of the game was feeding hungry family, friends, and farm hands.
What I also did not know is how much that environment shaped my life. Many family rug rats grow up and have a passion for running the family farm. My path was on a crash course for cooking in the kitchen. While many of my friends were out on the tractor plowing fields with a family member, I was home with Grandma Jean tending the garden or bugging Grandma Ceece about her raspberries. My mother is one of the most amazing "Farm Chefs" I will ever meet. She can bake like a rock star and was able run a scratch farm kitchen feeding hungry workers every single day. Oh, did I mention she did that all while raising kids, working at the post office, and helping dad with whatever needed done. I realize now that this story started early as a little guy, washing vegetables and making sure the beaters were clean after stirring freshly made cookie dough.
I found that cooking food and feeding people made me happy.
