Power Plant is a delicious, savory plant-based snack made with organic eggplants. 100% vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free.

We love interesting, plant-based, healthy snacks for all the obvious reasons. And since eggplant is inarguably one of the most divisive nightshades around-folks either dig it or hate it- our hats are off to Power Plant for giving people a new way to enjoy it.

We deliver a wide variety of freshly cut gourmet herbs sourced from small-scale US farms directly to your doorstep each month.

The subscription model has proven successful for a giant array of things- everything from razors to ice cream. So why not fresh herbs, too? We could definitely get behind this concept- especially if it encouraged folks to be more adventurous in the kitchen. Sign us up.

Fix Hot Sauce's Lemongrass Sriracha has an insane depth and spice profile, made possible by artful in-house crafting in small batches.

We're always excited to hear about fresh twists on the classic Sriracha and this small batch lemongrass variety out of the Pacific Northwest has us especially intrigued.

Artisanal Small-Batch Brisket Jerky

Truly great jerky is hard to come by, so we get excited when a new name pops up promising top-shelf dried meat. These TX boys are using brisket, which is a nice indication of their commitment to taste. But what we really love about them is that they've backed 187 other projects!

Join Fungi Ally in making mushroom cultivation more accessible and productive in the Northeast U.S.

These folks aren't messing around- they're legitimate fungi freaks on a mission to spread their mushroom message. They recently received a matching grant from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, so they're obviously doing good work.

National & International Cider Awards. We have a plan, hard-working, very creative, and ask for your help to bring our ciders to YOU!

This project has a lot going for it: a pair of likable, seasoned creatives, an award-winning cider recipe, access to Michigan's apple bounty, and a very cool vintage trailer to name just a few. Help these two anti-upstarts take their cider biz to the next level, alright?

We did it! Thank you all for supporting our project!

Biltong is the South African version of beef jerky. It's dried by air, keeping it more tender than traditional jerky.

It's no secret we're jerky lovers, so we were excited to discover these guys and their unique South African style jerky about a year ago. After a short hiatus, they're ready to gear up production + take their operation to the proverbial next level. We're behind them all the way.

After two years of strong growth, Shark Mountain seeks to expand production of their single-origin, small-batch chocolate and coffee.

The deeper we looked into Shark Mountain, the more we liked what they're all about. Many bean-to-bar chocolatiers partner with coffee cos to do bespoke bars (Mast Brothers + Stumptown, etc), so it's cool to see both goods coming from the same small batch independent maker.

Hudson, NY is one of those little places upstate where special things happen (and special people move to from the City)- so we're betting that this shrubs and bitters line from a pair of ex-Brooklynite wine merchants is special, too.
