Aloha, thank you for taking the time to check out my wild idea of starting a food company in the middle of nowhere.
I consider myself lucky to be here. We are located in a remote valley, 30 minutes north of Las Vegas, NM, at the base of Hermits Peak.
Out here in the wild, we are free from urban chaos, have the chance to grow food, connect with nature and animals, and share these gifts with others. It’s that simple. These are the things that make me the happiest.
I come from a farm and ranch background, both parents were homesteaders, and I have taste buds for fresh, seasonal ingredients. I spent my adult life working as a private chef in NYC and San Fransisco for 30 years.
When Covid hit, and San Francisco emptied, I bought this little ranch, moved to New Mexico, and started a catering business.
My first wedding season was the last year, 2022. We were getting ready for a busy summer when the unthinkable happened. The Hermits Peak Calf Canyon fire destroyed over 300,000 acres of forest, and 700 homes, including my professional kitchen.
I had 15 weddings to cook for and not one pot or pan. Thankfully, I pulled it off with the help of the local community and churches, donating their kitchens to me.
That’s when the idea of turning my ranch into a farm-to-venue food company became real, only this time I was going to do it differently.
We create seasonal wedding menus that are prepared exclusively for each client.
Zero GMO, zero single-use items, zero plastics, no shopping at big-name stores, and everything is made fresh from our farm produce and cooked in our local community kitchen.
But most importantly, we do not tolerate factory farming of animals. We selected a small handful of ranchers who practice regenerative ranching and the humane treatment of their animals.
We promise to create the wedding dinner of your dreams without a big carbon footprint.
If eating fresh, beautiful, authentic food with friends and family is your thing? Then check us out. We would love to spoil you.
“It’s never too late to follow your dream.”
