About Our Project: Bounty New York

We're launching Bounty New York to create an online marketplace for New York State farm and food products.  Knowing the growers and producers from our local farmers markets, and learning how amazing their stuff is has led us to want to share their products with more people.  We've started by selecting five of our favorite foods from the Hudson Valley for a delicious tasting box. Soon we'll be curating more boxes focused on different themes and regions of New York, and we'll be opening an online store where you can find any of the items you loved from the tasting boxes you've tried.

All of our boxes will include tasting notes, which are detailed descriptions of the products, producers, and serving suggestions for each item in your box. We'll pass along cool tid-bits about our selections and producers that make them unique. 

What's Next

Meeting the Kickstarter goal we've set for this 30 day sales campaign will allow us to hire a developer to customize our website.  We're building a platform that will offer visitors a unique way to shop and learn about the foods and Bounty Boxes we're featuring on our site.  We'll share videos and stories about the farmers and small-batch producers we're fortunate enough to work with.  We're convinced that a deeper understanding of where our food comes from, and the work that goes into making it, translates into a more enjoyable and delicious experience.  Food can transcend mere sustenance, and Bounty New York's mission is to make that happen more often.

Notes on Shipping and Gift-Giving

When you become a backer your payment is processed by Amazon Payments.  They will collect data on your billing address, but not a shipping address.  If our project is successful you will receive a follow-up email asking for your shipping address, or if sending gifts, multiple shipping addresses.  So be sure to check your email!

Risks and challenges

The risks we're particularly conscious of with this business have to do with the very nature of "small-batch" production. Steady, consistent availability of inventory is not something we can rely on. We've gotten commitments from our vendors whose items are included in the Hudson Valley Bounty Box that they can fill the number of orders we anticipate (and beyond) when this campaign ends in November. But we'll then need to quickly find new great foods and producers to partner with. This is a challenge we're up for, and one we're really excited about!
