The 1812 offers in-house and off-site catering.  We are located in a farming community.  We cook like our grandmothers did with local and fresh ingredients from our own organic garden and neighborhood farmer’s markets whenever possible.  We use non GMO oil.  We use real butter.  Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free dishes are available.    We specialize in “comfort food” for your wedding.  We know you want your wedding meal to be tasty!

Each of our all-inclusive packages includes catering.  You can also add-on or order catering outside of a package.    Our in-house packages are designed buffet style catering with station and hand-passed appetizer options.  Plated meals and off-site catering are also available.

Top off your event with a S’mores bar, ice cream bar, candy bar, donut topping bar, or other special treat!
