The Bear Butter ProjectBear Butter is a delicious, all natural honey/peanut butter spread we created and want to share with the world. We’ve come a long way so far and are proud to say 1,000 Bear Butters have been sold in only a few months! In fact the demand for Bear Butter is so great right now that we don’t even have enough money to buy all the jars, lids, labels, peanut butter, and honey necessary for all of our retail customer’s needs.
Aside from the mere production of vast amounts of Bear Butter, we dream of improving and growing our company in a number of ways as follows:
1) Make Bear Butter available in more varieties (new products, labels, sizes)
2) Advertising and food show (We would like to buy advertising space in food magazines and purchasing space at a food show would be the best!)
3) Renting a truck for transportation of skids of honey and peanut butter
4) Be able to supply the larger orders that we receive.
By being able to jump up production to fill the demand we're receiving, we'll be closer to reaching one of our life goals, which is to make something people love to eat and making it available for everyone.
We see a world which can be filled with creative and innovative spirit, a world where the possibilities are endless and grand and beautiful. Some people not only dream, but learn to love the work which they create for themselves in order to follow their dreams, in order to create a lovable and beautiful humanity. Joe and I - Stephen - will support such positive people for the rest of our lives with all of our soul, as much and as often as we can, as we strive to be this way ourselves. This is our purpose. Please join us in helping to create such a beautiful existence for us all.
Our purpose is also to share the delicious Bear Butter we've made!

Fun Facts For the Whole Family
Did you know...
- It was freezing cold the day we shot the video, causing the camera to shake whilst it was held.
- William Keller and Stephen Keller are in fact the same person.
- When we were shooting the video, a bear appeared in our backyard in the distance.
- We came across a strange phenomenon: when we show someone Bear Butter or that person overhears someone else talking about it, they must say out loud "Bear Butter," to themselves as they ponder what it is.
- When we first started producing Bear Butter, William went nuts for it (no pun intended), and ate about 1 jar per week, for 15 weeks straight. It was bad.
Thank you for visiting our Kickstarter page. We sincerely appreciate your help and the support of all those who help spread the word. This project has been a lot of fun so far, and we hope we can continue working on it!
Shipping costs have now been reduced to a minimum! Please just add $10 to your donation if you have chosen reward #1 or above. The donation can be edited to account for these shipping costs. (So a $15 dollar reward is $25 for international backers.) **The shipping cost must be included for us to send to you the reward you have chosen! This is for international backers only. Thank you!
Shipping costs for inside of the United States have been taken into account already in the pricing for the rewards.
It takes 15 days or so for the funded money to reach the bank account after the project ends on August 4th. So we will be jumping into gear ordering the products about August 18th, whipping the Bear Butter together the instant the material arrives around August 26th, and shipping out early September. Everything is ready to be ordered and made! We can't wait!
