Many of you know of Pigtale Twist Gourmet Dressings & Sauces as delicious shortcuts to elegant entertaining. If so, you know they are all Non-GMO, Gluten Free, No Sugar, Low Sodium, 1/3 the calories, no preservatives (except the fridge), clean, fresh & scrumptious. What you don't know is how tough it's become to be a female owned, small business in today's Food Industry. I still do all my own deliveries in 106 stores from Minneapolis to Detroit (average 1920lbs. per week over 1400 miles per week), Milwaukee to Chicago. I write my own recipes, develope my own products, take my own pictures, do all my own demos in every store. I do my own marketing, sales, bookeeping, & cooking classes. I just finished building my own website so that I can update it when "I" need to update it. Ultimately... I am all in having used my 401K to start my company. Hard work & creativity is what I am made of! Truth is, it takes more...

GROWING - BUT ON 72 ACRES AT LAMB'S FARM... ... MUCH MORE ROOM TO GROW!!! Pigtale Twist is sold in 106 gourmet grocers throughout the Midwest. It's taken 11 years to be able to say that!!!
I need to grow Pigtale Twist's product line to 12 flavors in order to expand nationally into larger retailer grocers such as HyVee, Amazon, Sprouts, Whole Foods, Central Market, Gelson's, Dean & Deluca & HEB. I need to purchase bottles, labels & ingredients at volume discounts in order to grow nationally. But why should you care about growing Pigtale Twist? Close your eyes for just a moment. Picture me driving over 4 states, making deliveries in stores everyday & doing demos 5 days a week. When an eldery couple stops for a sample and notes my products are made at Lamb's Farm. Their eyes well with tears. They have a 48 year old special needs child & no idea where or who will care for him when they are no longer able. There is currently a waiting list for many years to live at Lamb's Farm but... ... room over 72 acres to expand. Whether you are very wealthy or have very little, there are very few places like Lamb's Farm. Very few places for special needs adults to live, living productive, enriched lives.
With state/government funding cuts to such worthy organizations I need to become a greater steward towards Lamb's Farm and I need your help to do that. The sales growth which national volume would generate can help Lamb's Farm a great deal!!! And, the sales of my cookbook, "Pigtale Twist, Shortcuts to Elegant Entertaining" when completed, can generate even more. Close your eyes once again please, and visualize an amount you can afford to contribute. Recipes for 8 new flavors are already created & ready to launch. Each new product as delicious & clean as my existing Ridiculously Garlic Blue Cheese, Creamy Garlic, Beets All Ranch & Buttery Caramel Sauce.
OUR DREAM COME TRUE........
What would it mean to open more places like Lamb's Farm? What if they were everywhere, producing products regionally for Small Businesses? It would mean small business owners would save exorbident Freight Charges & Fuel Charges allowing for healthy growth. What if this Country could give all Special Needs Adults a safe, productive & rich environment to thrive in , all while giving their families great peace of mind?
