Northwest Food Investor Meeting

(Note: this event has already occurred)

Slow Money NW actively connects investors and professionals interested in food and farming with the food and farming businesses seeking investment and business development assistance. We are proud to hold another Food and Farm Investor Meeting Oct. 10th 6:30-9 pm at emmer&rye.

If you are an accredited investor and attending the Slow Money National Gathering you can attend this local event for free and enjoy Chef Seth’s wonderful fall food fare on us.

We have one startup and two growth businesses this round:

Hot Cakes Confections
Autumn Martin, former Pastry Chef of Canlis Restaurant and former Head Chocolatier for Theo Chocolate, has her own line of award-winning desserts that she already sells at farmers markets and regional stores. Her take-home Molten Lava Chocolate Cake is to die for. Autumn will present her plan to open her own cakery in Seattle.

Farm Power Northwest
Farm Power has already been successful in launching community anaerobic manure digesters, currently operating in Skagit and Whatcom counties. Their business relies upon the success of regional dairy producers while reducing the costs of those dairies. Come hear Kevin Mass present their plans to expand to new products and new regions.

Willapa Hills Cheese
Located on the banks of the Chehalis River three generations of Hueffeds (and others) work this farm to produce a variety of fresh and aged sheep milk, cow milk and sheep/cow milk blend cheeses and dairy products. Their products are currently available in regional stores including PCC Natural Markets, Metropolitan Markets, Whole Foods, Town & Country/Central Market, New Season’s, and Market of Choice.  Come hear Stephen Hueffed present their expansion plans.

During the meeting we will sample regional cuisine by celebrated chef Seth Caswell, owner of emmer&rye.
