“I have been organising the annual year 10 camp at the Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre for over ten year. Without a doubt the food organisation for the week has been my biggest hurdle each year. When the opportunity arose in 2010 to use the Rusty Carrot Catering Company I was eager to give them a try. The cost for the menu was comparable to my allocated annual food budget; however that is where the comparisons ended! The quality and quantity of the food was outstanding. Healthy, nutritious and well presented. I would recommend this service to any group.”
