June 19, 2010Help Kickstart Barkwheats

Y’all, no doubt, know Barkwheats because, well, we’ve featured them here before, and because our good pal Abby McMillen‘s art is featured on their (adorbs) packaging. Makers of wholesome, grain-free treats for dogs, Barkwheats buys their ingredients from local organic farmers in Maine, utilize wind energy for production, and employ 100% compostable materials in their packaging.

Barkwheats was born in 2007 as a little homespun operation and already has grown into a successful business with nationwide distribution. Barkwheats has grown so much, however, that their current baking equipment can’t keep up with demand. They’re running a campaign through Kickstarter to try to raise enough money for a new biscuit moulder. This new biscuit moulder a) sounds like something I want in my kitchen and b) would increase Barkwheats’ production by, like, a million (or basically a whole lot).

Check out Barkwheats’ Kickstarter page to find out more about this awesome company and how you can help.

    Thanks for the great post about our campaign! Every bit is going to help us succeed and get more healthy treats to more dogs and support more farmers.

    Yeah for Buckwheats! I always love hearing about entrepreneurs kicking butt :)

    Thanks Shauna! We can’t keep kicking butt without your help, though. This is a key piece of equipment we need to continue our business. Thanks in advance for pledging your support on our kickstarter page :)
