October is a well-loved month here at BHCC, and to toast the cooler temps and amazing foliage, we decided to make some of our famous sausages and doughnuts for you all to enjoy!
For approximately $20, you can get five links (roughly 1.5 pounds) of our house-made apple and fennel, cheddarwurst, or Maine blueberry and maple pork sausage, as well as four of Baker Kate’s apple cider doughnuts. Or, if you’re more hungry for sausage, you can just get sausage. Or, if you’re all about the fall-themed doughnuts, just get the doughnuts. We won’t judge!
Fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you regarding payment and confirmation of pick-up details. It’s that easy!
Please note that all orders must be pre-ordered and prepaid. Right now we’re offering pick-up on Friday, October 19th between 2-6 pm. We’ll add more dates depending on how many orders we receive.
Cheers to October!

At BHCC, we understand the important role food plays in the success of each event and each customer’s experience. We make sure to always find local and organic ingredients, along with sustainable poultry and meats, to be able to deliver food that is both restaurant quality and presented creatively. When you think Bar Harbor Catering Company, you surely think of food first, right? Every successful event doesn't just start with great food - it’s the attentiveness to the little details, in-depth logistics, and the realization of your vision coming to life. When you become our client, the kitchen is only the beginning!
So, what else do you get when you book us for your full-service event? We provide our clients with an extensive array of additional benefits that include:
Not sure how to juggle the rentals on top of mapping out your schedule? Just pick your patterns and styles and we’ll act as a liaison between you and the rental company, handling any changes and revisions throughout the planning process. We offer seamless integration with the rental company by checking in the rentals before the event and setting them back up for pick up after the event. And, there’s no need to worry about when you’re going to have your first dance or when the salad should be served. We’ll go over every detail with you to make sure your day-of schedule meets your vision and that the day’s activities flow seamlessly. Besides the food, the next most important aspect of an event is its design. We pay careful attention to specific details such as the color and theme of your event, centerpieces, decorations, the flow of traffic through the event and table layout, timing, lighting, and music, and we use all these aspects to guide the food presentation and event planning throughout your event.
Have you ever seen Top Chef Restaurant Wars? That’s basically what we do at every event, no matter the size. We create a fully functioning “restaurant” at your event’s location, serve top-notch food and beverage to you and your guests, and then take it all down (leaving it better than we found it!). And we typically do it all in 12 hours or less!
Whether you’re planning a wedding, a large corporate party, or an intimate birthday bash, we want to help you make it a stress-free and spectacular event. Check out our FAQs for additional information or click the button below and shoot us an email - we'd love to chat more!
Our 2017 season began like most others - a well-rested crew starting off with a long list of enthusiastic goals for what would be our busiest season to date. One of those goals, which we carried over from basically every season before that, was to have zero waste. Yes, I said it. Zero. Waste.
You’re probably wondering, how in the world does a catering kitchen manage that feat?
First, we nominated a Zero Waste Ambassador who started weighing out our compost each day so we’d have an eye-catching tally to report at the end of the season. But with all our good intentions, things got away from us and we had to focus our energy more on creating delicious cuisine and magical events than on ensuring our zero waste initiatives were met.
That’s not to say some great progress wasn’t made, however. We’ve always had a robust composting and recycling program, both of which have improved year over year in the nine years we’ve been in business. Our neighbor’s farm benefitted from the tons of compost we saved from the trash that fed his gardens and we had long since replaced Styrofoam and other similar products with biodegradable and compostable alternatives.
As such, our momentum last season propelled us into 2018 with great ambition. To top it off, we were invited to join a local group of food businesses on and around MDI who had similar goals in mind - namely to reduce food and other waste produced by businesses like ours. So, we joined the Sustainable Business Pledge and we haven’t looked back. As a participant in the pledge program, we promise to:
We’ve made huge progress thanks to this pledge, and one of our biggest achievements has been with regards to trash. We’ve reduced our trash output exponentially - going from several large bins to one small bin for the ENTIRE kitchen.
We’re excited to see where this all leads to next and we know one thing for sure, the local pigs are super happy with all our food scraps.
