My story...

The Lovely Cow Shed are outside caters who take our name from our favourite on the family farm – the very farm that continues to provide some of the freshest and finest ingredients we use to this day. What once started as a delivery business, in which I delivered both savoury and sweet platters to people in the local area, has now developed into being asked to host afternoon tea events and create personalised, delicious food for wedding, birthdays, funerals and special celebration. In my 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry knowing my customers’ wants, needs and satisfaction is key to providing tailored and personalised buffets. Throughout the expanding business, that will always be my role I always deliver what the customers’ needs and loves.

We also make super platters for 2-4 persons these are our Ploughmans, mixed chicken, meat lovers, and the ultimate seafood. Our afternoon teas are that little bit different coming in a beautiful caddy, which can be personalised to the occasion.
