We at East Hill Creamery are adding the final piece to the puzzle for our community to enjoy. Our beautiful new event venue, “The Chalet”, is complete and we have added to our team once again! We’d like to introduce our new events coordinator, Courtney Hill. Courtney is originally from Bergen, NY. While in high school she became interested in food and gardening and started a small CSA with vegetables from her own garden. She enjoys music and plays the clarinet. While studying Philosophy and Environmental Studies at SUNY Geneseo , she participated in farmers markets in the area selling organically grown veggies from the farms she worked on. While working at a few local restaurants during her college years, she became interested in hospitality and the importance of good customer service.
Courtney has been traveling around the world for the past 3 years! She spent time in New Zealand, Australia, and England with her husband, Tom, as they traveled and worked their way around the world. She has worked in hospitality for the past 10 years and has managed events in all of the countries she’s visited including weddings, corporate events, private dinners, and parties.
Courtney has an eye for creativity, a trait she inherited from her Mom who crafts floral arrangements for special occasions. Courtney aims to please and wants to make that special day one in a lifetime. She will be helping us create, market, and run events in our beautiful new 5600 square foot event venue. She is hoping to make our “Chalet” accessible to everyone in the community by having regular, various events including concerts, tastings, classes, and shows. She can’t wait to have the first wedding in the Chalet! Courtney can be found behind the counter at our store on weekends and helping out with farm markets and festivals. Stop and say “Hi”.
We'd also like to let you all know that in our store, starting this week, we have
mini peanut butter cups, milk chocolate truffles, and sea salt caramels from Sweet Sarah's right here in Perry! They are all hand made and as fresh as can be! Only the best ingredients go into Sarah's chocolates and candies. Her chocolate is nut free and gluten free and absolutely scrumptious!
