Headed to the Big Apple!

Dear fans and supporters,
Goldilocks Goodies is headed to NYC this weekend to participate in the Food + Enterprise Conference and is a finalist in a pitch competition this Sunday, March 1, as a sustainable food maker. A whole-hearted THANK YOU to y’all for getting me to this point. My commitment to providing wholesome, quality baked goods from local ingredients has never wavered, and my hope in 2015 is to reach a wider regional customer base.

In addition to the pitch, the hosts are giving us the opportunity to fundraise on Barnraiser, a new platform for food and agriculture projects. I’m excited to reach a national audience, and will be promoting free shipping around the country for cookie order placed through Barnraiser. (The link goes live Friday, February 27).

Again, thank you for your continued support and love of Goldilocks Goodies!
