Meet The Owners

Wilder Fresh is Karen and Jim Wilder, former owners of The Wild Orchid Cafe, an award-winning restaurant in Annapolis.  After closing the restaurant and experiencing boring retirement Jim and Karen moved on to catering and events on a mostly part time basis.  The couple have now decided to get involved in taking down the industrial food movement. No big deal! They thought about being farmers, but Karen can’t even keep her house plants alive.

Karen and Jim are the Wilder’s. Karen is a home-taught master in the kitchen. She raised their boys on natural, freshly cooked and delicious food. Jim, aka the trained Chef and production officer commands the kitchen and vendors. They have again teamed up to bring  seasonally inspired, nutritious, and delicious meals to the hungry citizens of Annapolis and the surrounding areas.
