Delicious food from scratch. Locally sourced. Fully tailored menus.
Ate O Ate, Our Exclusive Caterer
The Roxbury Barn & Estate is thrilled to partner with Ate O Ate as our exclusive caterer. Owned and operated by husband-wife duo Rich and Peg Ellsworth, Ate O Ate offers menus based on a seasonal selection of regionally sourced ingredients, prepared fresh on-site in their large food truck and in our in-house catering prep areas.
Ate O Ate accommodates all culinary and dietary preferences. Ate O Ate does not offer standardized dinner choices, but instead offers you the freedom to put together a fully tailored menu, working with you every step of the way. Your guests will enjoy tastefully presented, scrumptious food. Ate O Ate’s well-trained staff, who’s been with them since the start of their business in 2012, is always accommodating, kind and professional. Their food truck is a fully certified commercial kitchen with a six-burner stove, two ovens, a deep fryer, flattop and grill, two refrigerators and a small freezer – state of the art.
We are as passionate about food as we are about our region. We cherish its history, and the roster of over thirty farms and artisans with whom we work. We showcase our local farming community in the best way possible: foraging the freshest and most seasonal local ingredients, as they are the foundation of our flavorful menus. We’d be thrilled to create a customized catering plan in line with your vision.
