Seeds to Celebrations
In 2012, Seeds to Celebrations was launched in order to promote local farms and sustainable, organically grown foods.
Our event planners work to create customized menus using locally sourced produce, meats, cheeses, and dairy products.
Using sustainable farming practices, we cultivate and harvest fresh tomatoes, basil, Swiss chard, braising greens, watermelon, oregano, thyme, parsley, mint and other herbs from our garden and partner farms. During the growing season these ingredients are used in all our kitchens.
Our farming partners help to turn dreams into farm-to-table feasts, and now it can be part of your own celebration. If you are interested in using locally grown produce for your next event, Contact Us to learn more about the Seeds to Celebrations process and schedule your event today!
Also make sure you check out our Blog for more information on our grown to order events!
Testimonial from the Bride
“When Catering by Seasons indicated that they would be able to translate our personal commitment to buying locally and sustainable into our wedding menu, we thought ‘great, even if we can just do a little to incorporate that theme, let’s try it’. We never imagined how well your team would work with local farms and vendors to make the event such a success. I heard ‘This food is fantastic!’ more often than ‘The bride looks so lovely!’ which, as the bride, I still took as the highest compliment.”
-Jessie, pioneering bride from our very first grown-to-order wedding

The food was exceptional from start to finish, and many, many guests provided immediate and vocal feedback about how delicious everything was.
I cannot say enough good things about Glynis Keith and the team at Catering By Seasons.
As mother of the bride, I was totally impressed by the professional, helpful and curteous service Catering By Seasons provided at my daughter's wedding.
