About Patch Camp Ovens

Who is Patch Camp Ovens?

Patch camp ovens were started by Michael Patch, after an unsuccessful search to purchase big camp ovens for his catering business.

Large camp ovens would enable Michael to be able to cater for 5000+ people at one time using fewer smaller camp ovens at functions.

After making his own big camp ovens, Michael saw a demand for them and started taking orders for large camp ovens.

Patch camp ovens specialise in sizes ranging from 16inch all the way up to 36inches.
