The Fayette County Chamber of Commerce recently welcomed new business, The Farmer’s Pantry, to the ranks of membership.

Located at 2733 State Route 41 Northwest in Washington Court House, and owned by Amanda Ivey, the business offers on site catering, event planning, drop off catering to your event site, and the very popular take home meals. The take home meals are pre-cooked, ready to eat. Just pick them up, heat them up and dinner is served! Meals are made for those who like comfort foods as well as those with special dietary needs such as healthy, clean, high protein, and low carb meals.

It all began about five years ago, as Ivey began making food for people and hosting parties and events at the family farm (Real McCoy Genetics) near Jeffersonville, and it has grown into a full time business for her. “More and more people started asking for me to do food for them and that is how my business started,” she said.

A native of Arkansas, and a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a degree in Animal Science, with an emphasis on meat science, Ivey moved to Ohio eight years ago but has been working in food service since the age of 14.

No longer operating at the farm, The Farmer’s Pantry is its own business on State Route 41, just past Halliday’s curve on the left. The stone house is currently under renovation, while Amanda cooks in a commercial kitchen in the garage. When it comes to catering, Amanda says that every party and event is so different, she will gladly customize a menu to meet the client’s needs.

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 12 to 6 p.m. Give Amanda a call at (479) 970-0440 to inquire about her services, or check her Facebook Page for information on the services available and the take home meal menus for the week.
