Carter Light, Chef/Owner
Carter Light makes delicious sausage with the freshest ingredients using old world techniques. Carter learned how to make sausages in culinary school at Southern New Hampshire University and has been fascinated by the process of transforming throwaway products into something delicious ever since. His love of food started at a young age when he was growing up in a bed and breakfast operated by his mother. Carter has worked for Chef Paul O’Connor at a fine dining restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where became executive chef. Carter then moved to Park City, Utah and ran Silver Restaurant. After several years at Silver and looking to move back to the east coast, Carter partnered with James Mitchell to open Coda restaurant in Southwest Harbor in the winter of 2015. Carter created Colvard and Company, LLC two years later and ran simultaneously with the restaurant. In 2020 the pandemic forced the restaurant to close and Carter shifted his focus to making sausages fulltime. When Carter is not making sausages he enjoys camping, hiking and playing frisbee with his dogs Buddy and Montana.
