Chef Aaron Holt, owner and operator of Catering by Doolittle Farm.

Winner of the 2018 Iowa Restaurant Association’s Chef of the Year award. 2019 Morsel Combat Peoples Choice award and 2022 Taste of Elegance award. 


The story: 


The Doolittle Farm is a 61 acre Iowa century farm located in Story City, Iowa. The farm was established in 1905 by Chef Aaron’s great-grandparents on his mothers side, William and May Doolittle. 


In 2018 Aaron took over ownership of the property and started growing produce to support his chef career. He now operates Catering by Doolittle Farm, a farm to table catering and personal chef business. 


Aaron’s goal is to turn his families farm back into what it was over 100 years ago. The type of farm our great grandparents would recognize. Practicing “Regenerative Agriculture” and working to provide a sustainable food future. Catering by Doolittle Farm takes the best of what Iowa has to offer and provides memorable and delicious dining experiences. 


“From our family century farm to your table.”

Our Mission

The mission of our farm-to-table dinner is to not only honor our agricultural roots but to also celebrate all of the programming and events that take place in our community event venue at Bricker-Price Block.

This much anticipated event sold out in nine minutes in 2019.

The History of our Harvest Gathering Farm-to-Table Dinner

On October 20th, 2019, our very first farm-to-table dinner was set in the middle of our small town under farm-style lights in the middle of Chestnut Avenue in front of Bricker-Price Block in Earlham, Iowa. Since then, the Harvest Gathering Farm-to-Table Dinner has become an annual event that celebrates our community’s rural roots and encompasses a genuine sense of fellowship.

“What a great sense of community and fellowship to be a part of! The food was fantastic, the service was impeccable, and the company was perfection.”
– Megan, Harvest Gathering Guest
