The heart of Terrapin Ridge Farms is derived from my love of entertaining. I grew up in a family that loved to host parties – our annual Holiday Open House was legendary. My friends loved to hang out at our house and everybody was extra excited when it was Aunt Rosie’s (my mom’s) turn to host the holiday party. She made it look so easy. Her secret was a laid back style and effortless, great-tasting food. The spread looked and tasted like she fussed for days.
I discovered early on I inherited this love of entertaining. This has drawn me into the world of specialty food. After 10 years in the specialty food industry, I ventured out to buy a small specialty food brand with budding potential. I reached out to a friend of 22 years, and fellow Cleveland native, Brian Coughlin, in July of 2010 and together we purchased the Terrapin Ridge Farms brand.
Our brand has grown from a handful of items to over 84 great selling products including savory jams, garnishing aioli squeezes, mustards, dips, dressings and sauces. We have developed a reputation as a truly original, high quality food creator. Our team is made up of passionate foodies with the goal to deliver on creating a memorable and positive experience that can be shared with loved ones, turning simple into unforgettable.
