Pizza Hippo: an Organic, Fire Grilled Pizza Stand at Kindle Farm School featuring organic KF veggies, local meat, and local cheeses.
Pizza Hippo's mission is simple and aspirational at the same time: To transform communities through the power of organic food.
Besides serving our local community delicious and healthy organic food, we are actively creating a viable, profitable model for a national fast food chain to truly source locally. We believe this is the most effective and socially conscious way to purchase ingredients, and we think if proven profitable, the mega chains will follow our lead.
All of our pizzas feature: Organic Sourdough Crusts (gluten free available!), Local, Organic Vegetables, Local Meats and Cheeses, and a variety of hand crafted sauces ranging from the classics (Marinara, Garlic Scape Pesto, Barbecue) to the avant garde (Creole Grillades, Sweet Potato).
We, the citizens of southern Vermont, have rallied behind a cry that is being echoed around the world. Please STOP corrupt, government subsidized, multinational corporations from selling poisonous food to us and our children.
If you love great Vermont pizza, and believe affordable, fresh, local, organic foods are a right EVERYONE is entitled to, then please support Pizza Hippo by investing in our start up fund.
Pizza Hippo will work in partnership with the Kindle Farm School. Our flagship location will be at #1 Route 30 at the Kindle Farm Organic Vegetable Stand, straddling the Newfane Townshend divide.
To open our flagship store we need to purchase some equipment required by the health department, liability and workers comp insurance, and build a small wooden structure (wood logged and milled onsite at Kindle Farm School).
Supporting Pizza Hippo will not only bring Newfane, Townshend and the surrounding areas its first and only organic restaurant, it will also showcase the vegetables grown by Kindle Farm students. These hard working students deserve to see the fruits (and vegetables) of their labors in use, being eaten and loved by their community.
Don't live in Vermont? Don't worry! Bringing Pizza Hippo to a town near you DEPENDS on opening our flagship stand. Help us come to you. Invest in Pizza Hippo today.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to feeding you and your family in the coming weeks and years.
