food; provisions

Provender is the natural progression and evolution of ideas. After the last 3 years of on-location dinners with The Farmer's Table we learned many things. In an effort to provide a unique experience and help carry the load of the Farmer's Table dinners, Provender was envisioned. 

Provender is a roaming wood-fired oven and crew that brings a unique experience to almost any party or celebration. We merged a beautifully restored antique truck with a handcrafted Valoriani wood-fired oven.

Our truck arrives prepared to serve any group up to 300 guests and carries with it all of the refrigeration, water, and electricity it requires, not to mention 2 draught beer lines, 1 draught root beer, and an assortment of wines.

All prices will include a full staff prepared to prep, cook and serve.

For the past 8 years Chef Chris Grebner has been making countless pizzas, baking breads, and pulling many other treats from many wood-fired hearths. From a handful of commercial ovens to the one he built in his family's backyard, he has applied his experience working in restaurants and with private clients to help create a memorable experience for those he's cooking for.
