Update #1

First Goal Reached! Thank You From Linus


The first (but certainly not last) goal has been reached! It's hard to describe the feeling of excitement generated in this normally isolated community, knowing that people from around the world are supporting its efforts.

Linus wanted to at least try to express his appreciation all your support in helping him share "the best honey on earth" with the rest of the world. This update includes a video message from Linus.

Please continue to share the project with others who might be interested in his work, and thanks again for your support!  More updates about rewards to follow.
