Everyone has questions.

General Questions

What type of events do you do?

All sorts of events. anniversaries, birthdays, bach parties, wedding and baby showers, elopements, micro-weddings, etc. We especially love the groups of 30 people of less. The list is long so we won’t bore you with the huge list!

How long have you been in business?

We have been in business since 2019. We bring over 20 years of experience in fine dining and catering of a variety of events. Our background is in Canadian/American cusine. Lots of meat and potatoes with some fusion of other ethnicities mixed in.

Are you insured? Do you have proper accreditation for your craft?

Yes, we are insured for the general amount requested at most venues and establishments, as well as up to date on our ServSafe and Allergens requirements.

Currently, we do not carry Liquor Liability. We do have excellent recommendations though for other small businesses that do.

Are you environmentally conscious of your businesses footprint?
As much as we can be. From composting scraps, to sourcing ingredients locally first.
 
What is the Retail Delivery fee all about?

Effective July 1, 2022, the Colorado Department of Revenue imposed a retail delivery fee on all deliveries by motor vehicle to a location in Colorado with at least one item of tangible personal property subject to state sales or use tax.

The purpose of this fee is to mitigate the costs of infrastructure maintenance and pollution due to increased motor vehicle delivery traffic in the state. The fee will be labeled in a separate line on each invoice as, Retail Delivery Fee, and the cost will be $0.27 per order with a taxable item on it.

Are you hiring?

We’re always looking for a few exceptional people to join our team throughout the seasons. Business is usually during the peak seasons of late April through October, but is available all year round.

I'm in the planning stages...

How far in advance should I book?
The sooner the better!! While some months fill faster than others (think June thru September because of weddings!)
 
We only take a couple clients a week as to ensure the best outcome for your event. We don’t double book dates either, when Saturday is booked, it’s blocked off to anyone else.
 
 Our goal is to give our clients the best experience possible. With the small staff we keep, that’s only possible by taking limited engagements.
How are your staff dressed for events?

Our trained and professional staff are wearing either black pants, capris/shorts or a skirt with black shoes and either a green or black top depending on their role.

Can I make my own menu and have you price that out?

Absolutely, we are happy to work off what you know works best fro your group. We will gladly price out your menu for you and send along the estimate of what the cost would be depending on your desired style of service and other factors like location and cost of ingredients.

Can you use a family recipe?

Family traditions is the heart of our company. Sharing recipes of old amongst loved ones is a great way to celebrate. Please keep in mind though, that even with our best foot forward, “no one makes it like grandma”.

We’ll do our very best to recreate these special recipes for our clients, but there are just somethings that we have learned that never truly make it to those recipe cards (we know, we have a few like that from our own family).

I have a last minute order, can you accommodate me?

While we prefer no less than 30 days notice, if we are able to we will add you in to the schedule. There is a $250 rush fee for this to cover the additional staffing required to accomplish the request and the higher food costs.

How do I get a quote for my event?
Fill out our contact form here: www.hthpersonalchef.com/contact-harvest-to-home
It asks all the important questions so we can better assist you with that custom menu and quote.
How far will you travel?

Currently, we are located in Longmont, Colorado. About 45 minutes north of Downtown Denver. We’ll travel all over the state for our clients though. Depending on the distance there may be travel and accommodation fees required, but we can talk about that once we’ve connected as it varies by location.

Do you offer just delivery or Drop-Off Services?

Sure do!! If the event is within 30 minutes of Longmont we can deliver food hot to your event. Anything outside of the we will come, heat the dinner for you and set it up then leave, leaving you with the clean up at the end of the evening.

Can you accommodate guests with dietary restrictions?

All of our creations are created in a shared kitchen. While we do our absolute best to maintain the cleanest of work spaces, we cannot guarantee the possibility of not having cross-contact with allergens. These could be eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanut, soy, gluten, and dairy.

If any of your guests have specialty needs please inform us at the very beginning of our time together so we can work on a plan that fits everyone’s needs.

What happens to left over?

Excellent question!

Leftovers that have been paid for are left behind at the chef’s discretion. We will only leave behind food that considered safe to heat after being properly reheated.  Anything that falls outside of this parameter, is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. The pigs at Lazy J Ranch in Longmont thank you! No food wasted here!

There is a waiver you have to sign. It states that you understand once Harvest to Home is off the property anything left behind is no longer our responsibility. It absolves of any issues that may arise due to improper reheating at your own risk.
