The heart of Terrapin Ridge Farms comes from CEO/Owner Mary O’Donnell's love of entertaining. She grew up in a family that loved to host parties – their annual Holiday Open House was legendary. Her friends loved to hang out at our house and everybody was extra excited when it was Mary's 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.
Mary discovered early on that she inherited this love of entertaining and ultimately this love is what drew her into the world of specialty food. After 10 years in the specialty food industry, Mary ventured out to buy a small specialty food brand with budding potential. She reached out to a friend of 22 years, and fellow Cleveland native, Brian Coughlin, in July of 2010 and together they purchased the Terrapin Ridge Farms brand.
