Baked by the River

Please support Baked by the River in our goal of opening a storefront for our business. If you like what we do and want to see more, we need your support as we're just starting up! We're looking forward to having a location where we can teach baking classes in person, have events featuring the many incredible artists and entrepreneurs we been fortunate enough to connect with and be invite you all down to enjoy our baked goods for yourself in a chill, safe, stigma free atmosphere.

This new industry here in New Jersey needs small businesses like ours, owned by people who have years of personal experience with plant medicine, who have been victimized by past criminalization, and who have had to fight judgement and stigma each step of the way just to exist and be recognized as legitimate. We have been activists, patients, and recreational users for over a decade, and deserve a place in this industry. We will use our business to support others who have also been criminalized in the past,  promote diversity in the industry, and support other, local small businesses. We are up against some pretty big corporations and could use all the help we can get! 

Our business has the great potential of benefiting our entire town. When we're able to get the proper licensing, we would be the first business of our kind right on the border with Pennsylvania in Lambertville, NJ, a town perfectly set up to benefit from the green wave about to hit our state!

We so appreciate your generosity! Anything you're able to give helps us to keep doing what we do and to grow into something new.
