About this project
FUNDED - but we still need your help!
Reach goal - $17,000
Reach goal reward - All backers at a $35 level or above will receive a 12oz bag of a special flavor unique to our Kickstarter campaign.
Finally, truly delicious certified gluten-free granola.
Gatherer's Gourmet Granola is looking to launch three additional great tasting, certified gluten-free and non-GMO flavors. Your support will make it possible for us to roll these out. The funding will help us cover the cost of printing the bags and getting the gluten-free and non-GMO certifications.
THE WORLD’S MOST DELICIOUS GRANOLA
The very best ingredients - Made with locally sourced artisan honey, some of the world's finest chocolate, fresh pistachios, orange blossom, cranberries, and walnuts.
Meticulously designed flavor profiles - We stop at nothing to deliver only the most mouthwatering combinations of flavors in our unique recipes.
Artisan quality baking - It’s not just what you put in, but how you put it together.
THREE NEW FLAVORS
Gluten free - All three new flavors will be Certified Gluten Free.
Non-GMO - All three new flavors will be Certified NON-GMO (they will contain no genetically modified ingredients).
- No refined sugar - Only natural sweeteners are used in the new flavors. These are our lowest sugar & carbohydrate offerings yet achieved with no gimmicks, and no sacrifice on taste.
Who We Are
At Gatherer’s, we love to eat. We don’t just eat anything, though. We like to eat food that tastes great.
Gatherer’s makes granola specially crafted for people like ourselves. That is why Gatherer’s Granola is granola for people with taste-buds.
The Gatherer’s bakery is infused with jazz music and images of fuzzy forest animals dancing in our bakers’ heads. All jazz musicians themselves, the bakers work in a playful, musical atmosphere that reflects the ethos of the company.
Gatherer’s core values are taste and quality. Gatherer’s combines a healthy obsession for good food with authoritative skill and artistry to produce the best tasting granola on the market.
- Chipmunk’s Choice - Peanut butter, almond, maple syrup
- Squirrel Bait - Pecan, maple syrup, toasted coconut
- Fox’s Fancy - Apples, spices, honey

Why we need you...
Risks and challenges
To ensure that we are able to deliver on the rewards we have outlined here on Kickstarter, we've gotten the hard parts of our project out of the way in advance. We have fully developed our recipes and secured our ingredient suppliers. We have designed the packaging for the new flavors and our bags are ready to be printed with the push of a button. The Gatherer’s bakery team has experience baking large volumes to fulfill orders from supermarket chains and regularly ships product directly to customers.
That is not to say that we are expecting a launch without any unforeseen difficulties. Along the way, we have been confronted with unexpected equipment failures, supplier mishaps, and ingredient unavailability. We have successfully tackled all such problems without having our customers find our spot on the shelves empty.
We know to anticipate snags as our project progresses. We will always be transparent with our supporters regarding difficulties we encounter, such as:
Supplier organization: Gatherer’s products have many top quality inputs. Any of our suppliers could face difficulties delivering on time. We have back-ups in place, but switching can sometimes take a bit of adjusting on our side.
Ship dates: To account for delays, we have factored in some cushion into our delivery schedule and we fully expect to deliver on time, but there remains a possibility that some things could take longer than anticipated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Our current 3 flavors do not contain any wheat in them, nor has our facility ever processed wheat. In fact, we are the first food manufacturer ever to occupy our production space.
When our existing flavors have been tested for gluten, they have always proved to be below the threshold of 20 ppm (parts per million).
This is not to say that our current flavors are gluten free (GF), however. They are made with oats that are not Certified GF, and consequently, may contain trace amounts of gluten that could vary in quantity from shipment to shipment.
Many customers with high gluten sensitivity need the peace of mind that only having certified Gluten Free can deliver. We are now trying to make that happen with our Kickstarter project.
All of the advanced samples of the new gluten-free flavors will be packaged in large 11-12oz bags.
