Birch Shambaugh and Fayth Preyer are the husband & wife team behind Woodford Food & Beverage. Working their way through varied hospitality posts in San Francisco, Washington DC, Manhattan & Brooklyn, NY, and Portland, Maine, the two found each other somewhere in between over oysters & a few bottles of rose. With two small rascals now in tow, the sometime Oakdale residents are excited to bring another quality dining option to the neighborhood they call home.

Courtney Loreg is the Executive Chef at Woodford Food & Beverage. After graduating from NECI, she held posts in New York and Boston before coming to Portland, Maine to work at Fore Street in 2001. Since then she’s worked at Bresca, Aurora Provisions and plied her trade from Virginia to California, only to be lured back to the town she loves. Her passion for classic cookery, exceptional ingredients and really good beer made her the perfect fit for Woodford Food & Beverage.
