About this project
Support Belle Chevre in our efforts to grow!
Belle Chevre is a small artisan goat cheese creamery in North Alabama. Run by women, passionate about all-natural hand-crafted cheeses, Belle Chevre is the country's most creative dairy company, producing everything from creamy fig goat cheese to herb and oil packed chevre rounds, all natural and by hand as has been done since the beginning of time: an ancient craft but with a modern personality. We want to expand in a similar way – green, naturally and creatively with support of consumers that appreciate foods created by hands instead of machines. Our Kickstarter project is to fund a parcel of land on which to put our new creamery and goats!
Here's how this works: Essentially, we're asking you to give us money. In exchange, you get cool stuff. Your credit card isn't charged until our project ends and we reach our goal. If we don't get our target of $100,000 then we don't get any money and you don't get your stuff: so please, help us get there! Take a ook at Kickstarter's own FAQ.
The money raised in our Kickstarter project is the money we need to own a piece of land in Northern Alabama. We just found out our lease is up (and not for renewal) in 2013, and we need a new site! Investors will provide the capital for the building of the new creamery, whose plans we have already drawn up. It will be built sustainably and by hand using the rammed earth method. Read about it here.
We are the nation’s most creative cheese company, and you can find us in markets across the US as well as in top restaurants in the hands of the country’s best chefs. Help us in our efforts to spread good chevre!
We recently received a letter from our landlord telling us we have until 2013 to be off our current land. We need a new plot, and a new creamery! We need your help!
