The Yummy Cottage (Start Up Fund)
The Yummy Cottage Plant-Based Eating
Food is central to the human experience and good food has the ability to marry moments and people together for a lifetime. Vegan or not, health conscious or slowly awakening, young and old alike, the Yummy Cottage has a little something to offer everyone. As a daughter, wife and now mother of four I have learned some valuable lessons in the kitchen, which includes making a mean Jamaican fry dumpling from start to finish in less than 5 minutes :-).
Other than my dumpling making skills what do I have to show for all that time in the kitchen? Well glad you asked, I have been blessed with children who love their vegetables, soup, fruits and all sorts of healthy "tantalizing" foods. Friends and family often ask how do you do it?
Food, fun, education and imagination.
The Yummy Cottage desires to bring what we experience as a family at home to a broader audience.
How? By opening a catering/eatery business in Brevard, Fl.
Small Steps, Big Goal
In August-September of 2017, The Yummy Cottage teamed up with Green Foods Market in Malabar to see if there was a market in Brevard County, Florida for simple, healthy and let's not forget tasty food.
Here are some of the responses.
The Coconut and Navy Bean soup caused quite a stir, one patron commenting, "This is the best soup I've every had."
Everyone Benefits, Social Media Responses
We enjoy sharing in person and virtually, recently we shared this vegan cheddar video it generated so much interest that as per several request I created this how-to-video.
The Yummy Cottage promotes a holistic lifestyle, The C3 Challenge kicked off in January of 2017, in this clip I am giving a presentation about the importance of reading food labels and cleansing.
The C3 Challenge is a self-paced 30 day cleansing program. If you are in need of a good colon cleansing program with a support team of your peers feel free to check it out.

Research & Development
Exciting news! We have started the legwork.
Here are some of the options we are exploring:
Buy/Build ⏳ (Time Sensitive)
There is an awesome opportunity on the table right now a perfect spot to build. Check out the property and the email I received after speaking to the landowner. With your investment and willingness to share this campaign, we can make this vision a reality.
Email from landowner
"After speaking with you, I really you can put together for this property..."
The landowner shared that he is getting up in age but always invision a Jamaican Style/Costorican Resturant on the property. What a coinciedence!
This location use to be Daycare it has a small space for a kitchen but would need much work to transform it into the Yummy Cottage.
This location is prime, situated by the Atlantic Ocean in a heavyly populated area. This cafe is on the smaller side, it is priced to buy immedietly.
Fundraising Goals/ Simple Math
Together we can do it!
What's in it for you? If you are local you will have acces to a plant based/vegan catering service. If you are at a distance, well, you can always look forward to a family vacation in the sunshine state. p.s. we have beach weather in the winter :-)
Everytime we hit a goal we will release another how-two-video.
