Saucisson Kickstarter

I've mentioned the lady butchers of Cleveland's own Saucisson on this blog before. These chef friends started a business together based on their shared passion, and an interest in supporting local farms through their craft. It doesn't get any better than that.

Started in 2013, Saucisson’s mission is to provide unique and hard to find products. From hand cured meats to specially spiced sausages, Saucisson supports local farms that are humane and hormone free.

Since then, they've been providing artisan cured meats and sausages at farmer's markets, retail locations like The Grocery and Market at the Fig, and on restaurant menus like Cork & Cleaver, AMP 150, Porco Tiki Lounge and more. 

Well, it's time for these ladies to take it to the next level. They have secured a location and started a Kickstarter campaign to fund their brick-and-mortar production facility and retail butcher shop in the Slavic Village of Cleveland. In this space, you will be able to purchase pork chops, steaks, sausages, soups, stocks and their full line of charcuterie items. They will also be serving sandwiches, soups and charcuterie boards daily and keeping the space active by putting on sausage making classes, wine and beer dinners and the popular “butcher for the day” classes. Personally, I took a sausage and pasta making class with these ladies, and it was beyond fun and informative!
We were all pretty impressed that Melissa and Penny were able to get us to make that! Some of us, *cough* *cough* me, are not the best in the kitchen.

Mr. H and I are looking forward to having their products more readily available, and taking more classes, so we instantly backed them in their Kickstarter campaign. I think that you should too. Cleveland needs this. 

Please consider helping to make their dream come true. You only have until April 30th to help them reach 100% of the goal, or they won't receive the funding. Each donation level offers great prizes, like product, branded merchandise, a picnic package, meat of the month club for a year, private dinners, and more. Go check it out, and support these ladies.
