Private Events & Catering


"…The quality of farm to table and organically sourced ingredients, many of which grown on their own farm, made the difference in taste and experience than our usual catering options…” - Ginny, Events Manager, Oakland See full review

At Farmhand, we work with you to create a culinary experience that brings our farm to your table. Starting from organic seeds, we grow the produce for our menus and you can taste the difference. This provides you and your guests with a singular dining experience. We cook for groups as small as two and as large as two hundred.
