  • Chris is seriously talented and you won't regret booking him as your caterer. My husband and I live in Washington DC but were planning a Vermont fall wedding. Because we lived so far away we did most of our planning from afar and never actually met Chris or tried his food before we booked him, but it was one of the best decisions we made. We are big foodies who believe in sustainability and responsible sourcing. Just taking a look at his menu and food philosophy was enough to sell us, but seeing all of his five star reviews truly convinced us. Chris allowed us to come up with some fun ideas of our own for food, but we relied on his expertise a lot and just let him do his thing. We paid him extra to rent linens and flatware etc which was so worth it. We took a trip up to Vermont a few months before our wedding to attend a friend's wedding, walk our venue, and do a tasting. As fate would have it, Chris and his team catered the rehearsal dinner and Sunday brunch of our friend'... Read more

  • Chris and the Lazy Farmer crew catered our rehearsal dinner event. The did a spectacular job. The food was fantastic and beautifully presented! Our guests were thoroughly impressed and raved about the food all weekend. There was more than enough food to go around - still eating the leftovers and feeding family with it! Thanks! People also loved having the food truck/camper. A great touch! They are very professional - from appetizers to clean up! I highly recommend Chris for any event . thanks Chris for helping us host an amazing dinner.

  • We loved working with the Lazy Farmer! Right from the beginning, Chris was responsive and very flexible. He worked up numerous quotes and options for us, allowing lots of customization to make it work. The price is very affordable given the quality of the food and Chris is a very straight shooter about the price. He gave us insights about the best way to do a buffet and had lots of other tips that helped everything run smoothly. We choose to do a non-traditional meal, tacos, and got RAVE reviews from the guests. I would use Chris and his team again in a heartbeat.

  • We had a great experience with Lazy Farmer as our caterer from the very first time we spoke! Chris was great to work with, flexible and easy going. The dinner was exactly what we expected and even more! All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and a few even commented that the catering staff were super friendly and smiling all evening. We’d book them again in a heartbeat if we host another event!

  • The food at my wedding was SO good and Chris was fabulous to work with. We had apps served out of the adorable food truck outside, and then followed that with a delicious family style inside. His staff was great and everything moved flawlessly. And seriously, the food was amazing - go for the pork belly wraps! And the french fries! And the beef tri tips!

  • We used the Lazy Farmer as the caterer for our son's wedding reception at Kingsland Bay. The food was amazing in every respect; it was fresh, served hot, cooked to perfection....the guests could not stop raving about the food!! Chris and his staff were easy to work with and there were no hidden fees or surprises. We never had a formal "tasting" so choosing the Lazy Farmer was somewhat of a risk; we could not be more pleased!!!

  • We were so fortunate to have found the Lazy Farmer for our friend's backyard bachelorette party! We had about 20 people attend. Chris was very easy to plan with and had lots of ideas for the dinner menu. He was flexible and met the needs of our vegetarian guests. The food truck itself is so cute and looked amazing for a backyard summer party. The food was spectacular and we were impressed with how well Chris turned out the food all by himself! Overall, his service and the food was exceptional and we were all impressed. I would certainly look to hire Chris again for any sort of party or event!

  • We got married in November of 2015 and Chris was amazing to work with. Super accommodating with some gluten free guests I was expecting and very responsible to any questions I had. I had at least a dozen guests durin and after the wedding tell me thg it was the best "wedding food" they ever had. I agree with them!

  • Chris and his team at the lazy farmer were absolutely fantastic throughout the entire process! They catered our outdoor wedding for 70 guests and everyone LOVED the food! Chris was so helpful, responsive, and friendly and I would definitely recommend him for catering events. He helped create a delicious menu that satisfied all our guests, including our vegan friends and family! And the pork belly lettuce wraps were outstanding! Thanks for everything!

  • Chris and his team were fantastic. He was able to bring his food truck quite along way and cater for 100 guests at our wedding. WE did BBQ w/ pulled pork, BBQ chicken legs, BBQ tempeh and VT mushrooms, and wonderful sides. We had the meal family style and everything was hot and delicious. Chris also did late night food from the truck (tacos, bratwurst, and fries) for people who stayed to camp, AND brunch in the morning. He is extremely professional and his food was absolutely delicious. He sources great ingredients and was willing to come up with a great menu that everyone at the wedding enjoyed. Hands down the best food I've had in a long time, let alone at a wedding. I would recommed Chris as a caterer to anyone and can't wait to eat some of his food again when in the Burlington area.

  • We loved having Chris and his team be a part of our wedding day. Our wedding was set at a summer camp is Craftsbury Common and was not your ordinary wedding (which is what we loved). The Lazy Farmer help make our vision come to life by providing three meals for our guests on the day of the wedding. They were on point at every turn and didn't miss a beat during this hectic day. Here is what they provided - ~ For breakfast we had delicious breakfast sandwiches with pastries ~ For the dinner we had a taco bar (guests loved this and we had MORE than enough food to keep everyone happy). We also had them do mini empanadas and quesadillas for appetizers. His team did a wonderful job at handing out these apps and kept our guests happy! ~ At the end of the night they provided french fries for all our guests. Overall, we were thrilled we choose The Lazy Farmer to cater our fun-filled wedding day. The quality, ease and professionalism is there from start to finish! You will not be... Read more

  • My husband and I cannot say enough about Chris and his crew. We were wed over labor day weekend and had about 80 guests that were catered for. The food was incredible and made our day just perfect. Food is the most important thing for us and our expectations were met and beyond. Chris is easy to work with, responsive and flexible - there were no issues or headaches. We wish you all the best as you build your business and will treasure our wedding day and how special you helped to make it!!! I wish we lived closer so I could enjoy the falafel for often - so good!!!!!

  • We used Chris and his talented team to cater our August 2017 wedding. Our guests raved about each and every item Chris made for appetizers and entrees. Chris' team was well-versed in supporting a family style, outdoor dinner and every guest had plenty to eat with food leftover. Before the event, Chris was pleasant to work with and offered helpful suggestions for picking out a menu. In the end, we were incredibly satisfied with the catering and I definitely recommend using Lazy Farmer Catering for your next event!

  • My husband and I were very pleased with the Lazy Farmer for several reasons. One, Chris and his team arrived at our reception location well before they needed to in order to prepare for the cocktail hour and meal. Two, the team was professionally efficient, meaning food was out when it needed to be and dishes were kept filled until everyone had eaten. Three, all of the correspondences I had with Chris were through email and everything came together just as I wanted it to without having to meet in person or talk on the phone. After the wedding, several guests told us that the food was some of the best wedding food they had ever had, especially the brisket! I have to agree about the brisket and also the falafel appetizer was delicious!

  • Lazy Farmer was great for our 100 person guest list! Chris was helpful with planning and figuring out a menu to fit the event, as well as different dietary needs. The food was AMAZING! Everything was fresh, tasted great, and was always available on our buffet for the guests. The staff working during the wedding were so friendly and checked in throughout the night to make sure everything was going how we planned. We kept our menu simple with sliders, tacos, and creamies served out of the food trailer, but we still had an incredible amount of food and no one went hungry. Such an amazing quantity and quality, for a really affordable price!
