My husband Matthew started a garden 2 1/2 years ago in our backyard to calm his mind and bring him some peace after they discovered the cancerous tumor in his abdomen. He wanted to know what he was putting in his body and it brought him much happiness. Fortunately, even as early as yesterday after his 3-month scan at Dana Farber, everything is looking good for Matt health wise.
Over time, his small garden grew into a small farm in our backyard. (No joke.) He started making jams and jellies. Then he and his friend Louby Sukkar started making bigger batches for family and friends… and their idea for a company, The Backyard Food Company blossomed.
I have been so proud of the time, energy, love, passion and beauty that they have brought to their start-up. They have gained local exposure and people their products. Today they have brought their company to another level by doing a Kickstarter campaign.
If you are able to share this, be part of it, contribute or whatever… I would greatly appreciate this. I know first-hand how much has gone into this and I wish great success for these 2 guys. They deserve it! I’ve always known, to get anything… you have to put yourself out there. Go for it boys!
