Our culinary journey: From a small-town bakery to the Okanagan’s signature catering company.

The Beginnings

Gumtree Catering started out in Vernon, BC as a small scale bakery back in 2008. Well-known for the ‘best chocolate ginger cookies,’ Gumtree quickly grew into an esteemed catering company in the Okanagan area.

From the very beginning, we’ve been known for our local Okanagan ingredients and ‘from-scratch’ recipes. Fresh, delicious, and hand-crafted food is at the heart of all we do.

The Journey

Over the past 12 years, Gumtree Catering expanded its tasty baking into a full-fledged catering company. Our owner, Sarah, has been leading the team at Gumtree for over 10 years alongside with Gumtree’s previous owner.

In 2020, Sarah took sole ownership of Gumtree, as her business partner moved onto new business ventures. With the shift in ownership, the same amazing flavours and first-class service continue to be served here at Gumtree.

Our distinctive service, taste, and style have led to numerous recognitions in some of the top magazine publications over the years, including Junebug WeddingsRocky Mountain BrideWeddingWire Canada, and Okanagan Life.

Yes! We cater all over the Okanagan Valley. Please note, menu modifications may be required when travel is involved, as not all menu items travel well.

For sure! Our menus listed online are a sample of what we can offer, but we are happy to custom cater if you have something specific in mind!

Absolutely! We have plenty of experience handling allergies or other dietary restrictions. We will make adjustments to our menu items as necessary or provide those guests with a separate entrée. Please note, for those with very serious allergies such as peanuts, we cannot fully guarantee that your food is completely allergen-free. However, our Chef team does take every precaution when preparing meals in these cases.

At Gumtree Catering, we provide the warming dishes, platters, bowls, serving utensils, and menus for the food items. We have some great rental suggestions if you are needing to rent plates, cutlery, or glassware for your guests.

We may require cooking facilities on-site when travel is involved, but usually a well-lit and covered prep space with some tables works great for our team. Please contact us for more details!
