At the very heart, we are about people and relationships. Our culture is anchored in the belief that hospitality is about creating a sense of place where everyone has a seat at the table. At Harvest Moon we strive to bring that belief to life through our attention to detail, seamless service, exacting execution, and the expert preparations of the finest local ingredients.
Our table, set within the tight-knit and resilient community of Charlottesville, Virginia, was born from our experience operating a cult-classic diner serving early risers and late-night revelers. The love we poured into that business ignited our relationship with first the University of Virginia Greek organizations then eventually grew across the UVA Grounds. Our relationship with the college continues to provide tremendous outreach throughout Central Virginia and allows us to focus on several other specialties, including weddings, galas, graduation and alumni events, and the spectrum of corporate events.
Sustainability, in its many forms, is also a central tenet of our culture. Today, the commitment to the local community is reflected in our relationships with local farms, orchards, vineyards, and creameries as well as our collaboration with a variety of good-works organizations. We recognize our impact extends beyond municipal boundaries and our dedication to being environmentally mindful is at the forefront of everything we do. Harvest Moon Catering is an industry leader in environmental sustainability, a pioneer of Zero Waste Events, and our offices, kitchen and warehouse are energy efficient and LEED compliant.
We understand that we’re in the business of creating memories. At Harvest Moon Catering we know small details lay the groundwork for the big picture; whether it’s boxed lunches prepared for a handful of people, an elaborate wedding with hundreds of guests, or a corporate event. Our seasoned, professional staff know that hospitality is about exceeding expectations and anticipating the wants and needs of clients, guests, and the vendors we partner with. Our staff are passionate about service, good food, fabulous drinks and creating an experience your guests will reflect on for years to come.
As a full-service catering company, Harvest Moon provides all the equipment needed, from tables and chairs, to linens, glassware, and seasonal decor to expertly execute any vision with a nod to impeccable service and sustainability. Our capable team of professional servers and captains can set up a breathtaking dinner for hundreds of guests in the middle of a vineyard, transform an ordinary meeting room into an elegant reception area, or present sophistication in a cozy home for an intimate gathering of friends and family.
Our passion for hospitality is second only to our passion for service - we are here to help our guests realize their vision. From the first conversations with a potential client, there is unwavering attention focused on every detail. We realize each event is as unique as the individual client and take immense pride in our ability to listen to the community we are fortunate to serve, and it is this empathetic approach that fosters lasting relationships.
