Here at the Barn at Bradstreet Farm, we have surrounded ourselves with the most talented wedding & event professionals who share in the same mindset and quality of work as we do here on the farm! We are so pleased to introduce you to another one of our amazing catering teams- Saltbox Catering!
Saltbox Catering specializes in farm-inspired, globally influenced dishes for weddings, cocktail parties, corporate events and milti-course plated dinner parties. The catering team also works directly with Saltbox Kitchen's in house nanobrewery, Saltbox Brewery, to both cook with our beer and personalize beers made with seasonal ingredients from Saltbox Farm.
Saltbox Farm in Concord, MA is owned by Chef Ben Elliott who left his position with Chef Barbara Lynch in Boston to reinvigorate the farm built by his grandparents in the 1940s. Saltbox Farm grows a wide variety of vegetables, hops for beer, raises sheep and chicken and keeps bees for honey. Saltbox Farm is at the heart of all that we do and inspires us to run the CSA program, cooking classes, the restaurant, catering team and brewery!

They say the way to your heart is through your stomach so that must be why so many of our clients just fall in love with Ryan Costigan and his Woodland Catering style! Cheers to another one of our amazing catering partners here at the Barn at Bradstreet Farm!
Ryan was raised on the north shore of Massachusetts with his 2 brothers. After receiving his 4-year college degree, Ryan went on to graduate from the Professional Chef Program at The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. He then went on to work in many Boston area restaurants. But it was a stint in 2007 and 08 as the Head Chef for Green Olive Catering that sparked his interest in catering and started him on a journey build Woodland Catering from the ground up.
The food at Woodland Catering is the culmination of years of working towards the understanding of technique and ingredients. The process included concepts that would separate Woodland Catering from its competitors. A focus on locally grown and processed goods was always the first necessary step. As this idea developed, the realization that this would be a hospitality company first and a food company second began reveal itself. This combination of great food made with local ingredients alongside stellar service and communication have been the building blocks guiding the progression of the business. These building blocks align perfectly with the philosophy that The Barn at Bradstreet Farm has adopted.
Today Ryan makes his home in Merrimac with his wife and four young boys. His goal now is to continue to build this business in his image. This includes fostering relationships with other local businesses that share similar values and philosophy. Our custom menus will align perfectly with your special day and will always project the imagery our clients want to convey. As we like to say: “We don’t make food for you. We create food with you.”
