This Thanksgiving, we at The Cottage have so much to be grateful for. Our journey wouldn’t have been possible without the support and belief of many incredible people.

Firstly, we extend our deepest thanks to our investors. Your faith in our vision and your generous support have been crucial in our mission to bridge the gap between people and healthier, tastier food. Your belief in us means the world.

We’re equally thankful for the farmers markets and vendors who’ve enriched our experience. Your endless patience in answering our questions and listening to our ideas has been invaluable. We dream of a future where you can focus on your true passion – creating top-notch, healthy food – while we take care of connecting you with your customers. ChefV, your kind words…

“Thank you so much for all of your help! I know that many of the vendors will benefit from you, your team, and your great services. You have been a blessing to me and my family. Thank you again,”

…meant everything to us. Your feedback fuels our late nights, our extensive research, and our commitment, even as we juggle being parents to two energetic boys. Your message truly touched our hearts, and we thank you.

Our gratitude also goes out to our customers and those yet to discover us. What we’re doing is new and different. Even if you don’t realize it yet, your next favorite meal is waiting, and we’re here to guide you to it. Mitch, your words…

“My experience with Bell Biscuits (one of our vendors) was nothing short of amazing! Each biscuit I tried stood out as one of the best I’ve had!!”

…reaffirm our mission. We knew you’d love them, and we can’t wait to bring such joy to others too. Thank you.

A huge thank you to our mentors, whose wisdom and experiences have been a guiding light for us. Your stories of overcoming challenges inspire us to strive for future successes. And to our family and friends, who’ve turned every social gathering into an impromptu focus group – thank you for enjoying all the “sample food” and for your unwavering support.

As we celebrate with family and food this Thanksgiving, we envision a future where feasts are sourced locally from farmers nearby, bringing families together in gratitude, just like ours. Here’s to a season of giving thanks, and to the hope that our future celebrations will bring more families together in thanksgiving too.
