      Thanks for making this incredible project such a joy to support. Your clever and aesthetically wonderful emails make my day! GOOD LUCK with the filming...I'm spending some time teaching in China and would love to apply some of your lessons to the farm-raised animals over here.
      Wishing you the best!

      Please support this cause! When I was a child my father raised and slaughtered cattle, hogs and chickens as a nececity to feed his family, in the last few years we have gone back to this method by buying from our local butcher. Not only can you buy save tons of money but you will also get a quality of product that you have not experiennced to date. It is so delisious you will not got back... Ever!

      Thank you all so much for dedicating yourselves to this important part of the 'food revolution'. And for making the effort to share your skills! We're inspired and can't wait to share your video series as part of our cooking education efforts. In the meantime we're forwarding this project on to our mailing list. Best of luck, and come see us if you're ever in the Denver/Boulder CO area! Your photos will be on our kitchen wall.

      This is awesome! Just backed it and hope it gets funded. As a new farmer and a decade long chef, I can attest to the SEARCH for proper guidance on HOW TO slaughter, process, butcher, preserve and get to consumer this when this was forwarded to me I was ON BOARD. So cool. Good luck from all the way in Georgia! The Habersham Hacienda

      Awesome project, guys! Looks like you're getting close now...

    15. Brad Gentner on

      Fantastic. Wish I live close enough to take the class.

    16. Jared on

      This looks really amazing. My only comment is that you should have said in the video (or right at the top of the page) that the series would be free online. Looking forward to this!

      Awesome. It's not just the US in need of this knowledge, most of the western world and growing chunks of the rest too. Pledged and hope this comes to fruition.

      Thanks, Andrew, for creating the brilliant video for Lauren & Brandon's first Kickstarter campaign. It's an inspiring model for peer-to-peer financing for a highly worthwhile project!

    21. Matt Lawrence on

      Clearly, Andrew and the Sheards are experts. I am so stoked that they have decided to take this risk.

      This project demonstrates their dedication to increasing the visibility and accessibility of food production, putting our own individual ability to feed ourselves back into the equation the food chain.
