Our friend Lee Greene, of the scrumptious, Scrumptious Pantry, is looking to raise money for her product line made from local farms. She tells a little more about her company on her Kickstarter page:

At The Scrumptious Pantry we want to recreate the Farmer’s Market on the retail shelf – in the packaged goods aisle. Although we love (LOVE) our real, live weekend market, we all know there are those weekdays in which we stare into an empty cabinet at 6pm, but really want a nice home cooked meal. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could walk to your grocery store in the evening and grab all those pantry items you need for a delicious dinner – and still know who grew the stuff inside the jar? Who grew the grain for the pasta? Who raised the beef for the sauce? Who tended to the olive trees? And who farmed the tomatoes and cranberries in your condiment?

Giving you these answers is what we are here to do. That is why the farmers’ portraits are on the label. So you can look them in the eye. And you are going to find out that they will not blink. Because they have nothing to hide. They grow real ingredients, and we help them turn these real ingredients into real food for your enjoyment and nourishment.

We started working with Italian farms a while back, as that is where we lived and knew our farmers. Now, we want to work with great American farmers and ranchers to produce tasty products with a sense of place: products that represent the so called ‘terroir” (microclimate & soil conditions), as well as the regional culinary history – making use of heritage crops whenever possible.

Please consider kickstarting this worthy project.
