A benefit of launching a product on Kickstarter is that it’s opened up some doors for meeting influencers in the world of fermentation, dry curing meats, home cheesemaking, and homebrewing. If I step back and think about it, I’m kind of in awe about the number of fermentation “celebrities” who have responded to my emails, requests, or simply found us on Kickstarter. But then again, we’re all just people (well-known or not), passionate about a particular thing, and excited about the fact that someone out there in this small world has a similar interest.
Just about everyone who has heard of our Kickstarter campaign has been incredibly supportive. It’s been wonderful to hear comments from supporters who have said that the Cave is exactly what they’ve been waiting for. Or from fans who have told us about all the channels they’ve used to share our campaign. Seriously, you guys are the best. You’ve made us feel like this is a grass-roots campaign.
