[/media-credit]The Herbivorous Butcher is a brother and sister lead team that has spent years developing their small-batch, locally-sourced, and all-natural meat alternatives. Based in Minneapolis, they want to open up an all-vegan “butcher shop” in order to meet the demand after enjoying great success when they launched their product at a local farmer’s market. After receiving quite a lot of internet and press buzz, the team behind THB decided it was time to go brick and mortar! Don’t live in Minneapolis? Don’t worry! They plan on shipping their product nationwide once their store is up and running!

[/media-credit]Parmela Creamery is mostly known for their aged “Parmesan” grated nut cheese, but the company has since created a line of successful creamy soft cheeses. Now, they want to take it to the next level by offering even more artisan-style cheeses. With your support, they can buy the equipment they need to make bigger quantities of flavors in the style of smoked gouda, chevre, brie and blue cheese. The world can never have enough vegan cheese, y’all!
Help Parmela founder Laurice reach her dream of bringing her aged cheeses to you!

V-GRITS is the next project for chef Kristina J. Addington, the first vegan to win Food Network’s culinary competition, Cutthroat Kitchen. With her culinary chops, Kristina intends to bring southern fried, down-home cooking goodness to residents of Louisville, KY. Pictured above is the “Hot Brown Melt Southern Dip Style”, made with her from-scratch vegan bacon and cheese. Yum!
Supporting small vegan businesses like V-GRITS helps show people that veganism can be delicious, so help Kristina spread the message!

Mighty Wild is a food company that creates vegan-friendly acorn based crackers, run by two sisters, Aline Copp and Mimi Brown. Their acorn crackers are gluten-free and made with organic ingredients. They also add amaranth, quinoa, sorghum and millet, and several unique combinations of herbs and spices with no added sugar, artificial additives or preservatives. Who knew acorns could sound so delicious? Mighty Wild also donates a portion of its sales to plant trees, and is working with the Arbor Day Foundation. Sounds good to me! What a great possible addition to your next vegan cheese plate!
