Need a lunch in the office or maybe your hosting an event, but don’t want to take care of every part of the party? Let Ard’s Farm do the work for you. Talk with our professional staff to create the perfect menu for your event. Then pick it up to continue on your way or we can drop it off for you.

Graduation Parties
Throwing a great party involves great space, great friends and of course, great food! Graduation parties are something we have been doing at Ard’s for years! Whether you would like to utilize your place or ours we are happy to help! We have a number of full-service catering options or if you just need the food we would be happy to drop off a custom menu at your location. Ard’s Farm can also provide a bar service.

Showers
Showers can be stressful as you want them to be absolutely perfect for your loved one! Many responsibilities come along with them such as games, décor and of course food. We have casual or formal dining options available. Let us help you nail this party out of the park!

Large Groups
Quantity doesn’t mean that quality should decline. Ard’s has been in the business for over 20 years and have mastered the art of catering to large crowds. We are happy to cater events from 10-2,000! We have the pavilion available onsite or we can travel to your location.

Finding a quiet place, the perfect size for your meeting can be challenging. We cater to The Cellars at Brookpark Farm for many events and it offers the perfect size for a company meeting or the company Christmas party. This venue is an indoor facility with heat and air conditioning which allows for an enjoyable atmosphere. If your looking for something a little out of the ordinary, we also host corporate parties in the pavilion at Ards. Get your employees out of the office for the day. In fall combine it with the maize park for team building!

Meet the Team

Meet Jay Nissley

Jay began his working career as a junior in high school at Country Cupboard in 2002. He worked at Country Cupboard while advancing his education at Pennsylvania College of Technology, where he earned his bachelor's of science in networking technologies. Looking for a new opportunity in 2009, he found Ards. He began working at Ard’s while running his own computer business. His first day he was thrown in to the catering end of things and began to learn the business! Eventually, Jay had the opportunity to become the catering manager. He accepted the additional work including food preparation, every day deliveries, corporate events and even some weddings!  Jay has adopted the Ard’s philosophy that is customer comes first and takes that to heart!

In conjunction with being the catering manager, he is also Ard’s own “technology guy.” One of his first tasks was to transition Ard’s general cash registers into a user-friendly point of sale system. This system has allowed Ards to keep better inventory control as well as shows where each payment goes! From there, he has let his passion of technology expand throughout Ards. He does everything from maintaining his original point of sale system, to installing WiFi, to servicing computers, keeping our camera system on track and many other behind the scenes things (most the general public don’t understand, haha.) These technological advances have made communicating throughout the business much easier! Whether the Ard’s team is onsite or offsite we always have access to the details. Jay is a jack of all trades, master of technology at Ards.  

Not only does Jay have a hand in the business, but he will always be considered a part of the Ard’s Farm family! He has worked for the business in 2009 and still pours his heart and soul into what he does. You might even see him catching a movie or going out to eat with the Ard kids on a regular basis.
