    Gobble Gobble. Our dear friend and Goat Doula Susan Knapp makes really cool "piece feathers" form feathers from our Narragansett Heritage Breed Turkeys. These can be hung inside of out and move as the breeze catches them. Susan has graciously donated 5 of these as her part toward making our drive a success. First come, first feathered.

    Almost like being here: We have had such an amazing response from those of you in places far from our home, so now that all the trees are spoken for, her is another option. An Orchard Kitchen Logo Apron, a bag of my special Spiced Candied Walnuts, a set of 12 recipes that are my personal standard, go-to recipes, that I have developed and used over the last 30 years, and a Toast in Your Honor at our Ground Breaking this winter. You cannot be here, we understand. But we will send a little of our project to you and keep you in our thoughts as we begin to make the dream come true.

    Double Trouble: Two tickets to a cooking class so couples can both attend. The way Kickstarter works, evidently, you can't sign up for the same incentive twice if you and your significant other or dear friend want to take a class together. Two donors have experienced this problem, and I have had to create work arounds. So here it is: A pair of tickets for a cooking class in The Orchard Kitchen. Classes are hands-on (as much or as little as you like) and they include a meal of the things you cooked. So here is your chance for a couples getaway to Whidbey Island. Any takers?

    A Place at Our Table: One of the key components to our vision, because we want to do hands-on classes that culminate with an actual meal, is a great table. I see locally harvested and milled wood and room for 12 to dine and talk and appreciate the joys of the table. What we are offering is a brass plaque on the edge of the table facing the guest with YOUR name on it. Obviously space is limited, and I am making the executive decision to retroactively give a spot to the four donors that have given us $500 or more, so that leaves us with 8 places to offer. You will be in good company. This includes a cooking class too, so you can sit at your spot!

    Be a Real Swinger. I have had a request for a donation level of $1000. Can you believe it? It's true. I have been racking my brain to think of what I could possibly put at this level. Then it hit me: The Door.

    Now I have been really conservative and frugal when it comes to design and equipment needs for this kitchen. I got four beautiful, used double hung windows that will work great. I have been acquiring lovingly used restaurant equipment for the past few years because it is such a better value than new in most cases. And when it comes to the rest of the project, the part I am looking for others to help fund, I am being very conservative; I want to waste your money even less than I want to waste mine.

    But there is one thing, one indulgence, that I simply must have: An old, wooden Jamison walk-in cooler door. I just need my old wooden door. But they ain't cheap, so here is where you can pitch in.

    Donate the $1000 it will cost to buy it and ship it here (probably from the mid-west) and a brass plaque with your name on it will go right there in the middle of the door in place of the brass "Jamison" name plate. How much more in the heart of our project could you be than to have your name on the walk-in door?
