Dave and his amazing staff catered our wedding and what a great job they did. From setting up tables and chairs to serving an amazing meal...wow! I would recommend New Hock Farm and will definitely use them again in the future! Thanks Dave and staff for making our day so special and carefree!!  Elke Schamoni Haldorson  5 star October 2015


The mobile kitchen pulled into Shaffer Ranch Saturday afternoon for our daughter's wedding. You could smell the smoked tri-tip and chicken BBQing in the air, the smell was mouth watering.    Everything was spot on!
From beginning to end working with Lauren and Dave was a pleasure. Their attention to detail is impressive and the food is outstanding. They are the perfect one stop shop - tables, chairs, linens, place-settings, bar, jockey box etc. The day was a huge success in part because of New Hock Farms!   Keri Long5 star  October 2015

I wanted to thank you for the excellent service and food you provided to Enloe's Pulmonary Symposium on October 1st. The food was amazing! Everyone was raving about how good it was, you helped to add a bit of sophistication to the event. The cupcakes from Cinful Deserts were the perfect ending to the meal. I will definitely have you back next year!  Ruth Epperson5 star October 2015


Beyond great customer service experience - the food was amazing! New Hock went above and beyond to customize my event for me - even accommodating a last minute request for special dietary restrictions. Just can't sing enough praise! Thank you again for everything.  Susan Quinley Seybold5 star July 2015

The Chico Cioppino Feed committee would like to thank New Hock Farms for an amazing Cioppino lunch! Owner, Dave Newquist, Chef Lauren and the entire staff, including many members of the Newquist family, all contributed to the overall success of our inaugural event. Our Chico Community Benefit raised $50,000 for this year’s beneficiary which was the Boys and Girls Club.

From the beginning, Dave’s enthusiasm and support for our cause was inspiring. Dave and Lauren were very courageous to tackle the massive task of feeding 350+ people Cioppino! They had never catered Cioppino before us! New Hock Farms was so helpful in working out all the details associated with such an event. Their expertise and suggestions came in very handy!

The day of the Cioppino Feed we heard nothing but compliments on both the food and the service. The Cioppino soup had an intricate flavor that was perfectly paired with tangy caesar salad and warm garlic bread. In addition to AWESOME food, New Hock Farms also has everything you would need to host such an event. It’s a one stop shop where tables, chairs, plates, flatware and even portable restrooms can be rented all at the same place. We would recommend New Hock Farms Catered Events for ALL types of events and are looking forward to working with them again next year!
Dave and Lauren, see you next year for Cioppino 2016!!!

New Hock Farms is absolutely fabulous! Dave and Lauren were so easy to work with and got back to us right away when we had to make last minute changes.

They were open to our ideas and gave us many options when we shared our vision with them. The food was delicious and their staff was friendly and very flexible.

I recommend them to anyone no matter what your event is. Our event was not a typical event but had three different services that had to be timed just right, they were able to do this with ease and complete professionalism. Marijeanne BirchardAlpha Delta Pi Sorority February 2015


Sarah & Evan BlackOur thanks to Dave Newquist and his New Hock Farm Catered Events staff for all of their amazing work for our wedding in May of 2014. We are sincerely grateful for all of New Hock Farm’s efforts to make our special day what it was… perfect.

Dave would meet with us, face to face, from the initial discussions to the day before the wedding. Dave was prompt in returning our text messages, emails, telephone calls and voice mails. Dave answered EVERY question or concern we had, regardless of its significance. Dave was patient and sincere when decisions were being made and he remained flexible throughout the entire process.

Dave guaranteed us perfection from the first day on. All of his recommendations were made, not from only a business perspective, but from the heart as we could tell he was genuinely invested in the success of our day.

My husband and I would strongly recommend New Hock Farm Catered Events for ANY occasion.

The Chico Creek Nature Center used Dave and his fabulous crew from New Hock Farms as our caterer for our annual Fundraising dinner and Silent Auction. It was held at the Women’s Club on October 16th and was a great success due in part to New Hock’s gracious efforts.

Dave and Lauren worked with us on the menu to make it affordable for us. Dave pitched in to set up the tables when our crew ran late and the work was done so quietly and efficiently, you barely knew they were there. The food was delicious and I highly recommend Dave and his team to anyone needing professional and delicious catering services. Thank you to New Hock from the Chico Creek Nature Center!

Wow! You delivered as promised for the Polk/Olmstead wedding! The food was amazing, the price was right, and you, and your staff were very professional!

We love how you trailer your kitchen straight to the venue! Everything was so fresh!

Also, thank you so much in boxing up food for the bride and groom! That was so thoughtful!

We hope to use your service again one day! Thank you!

New Hock is where it's at! The one stop shop!

Not only do they have Amazing Food but they have tables, chairs, linens, flowers, incredible staff, decorations, luxury bathrooms and the beautiful mobile kitchen!

They bring the party to you (and even clean up!) Such a pleasure to host the sampling party at NoSlo Ranch.

Lollie DeYoungDave and his crew at New Hock Farms pulled off a great event for the Butte County Rice Growers 100 year anniversary picnic on July 26th. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal! The best thing about New Hock is that they do everything for you - tables, chairs, tents, set up and clean up. Something I was very thankful for when coordinating this event for 350 people at an outdoor location that honored all those in attendance. It was great having someone else do the "heavy lifting". Dave was professional and flexible in all my dealings with him and I recommend him highly to anyone needing high quality catering services.

Thanks so much for a wonderful wedding rehearsal dinner for Eric Lee and Rhonda Henry last night at our house. Both the meat and veggie lasagnas got rave reviews, the garlic bread was great, and the Caesar salad was wonderful. We definitely will use New Hock Farm Catered Events again and happily recommend you.
