Beyond The Shoreline
Kelp Jerky: The Perfect Plant-Based Snack
$4,675
of $7,500
26 days left
We are Beyond The Shoreline, a food innovation company on a mission to create food that’s healthy for you and for the planet. For the past year, we’ve been working to develop a line of delicious and nutritious products made from sustainably harvested seaweed. Seaweed?!? That’s right! Seaweed has more vitamin C than orange juice, more calcium than milk, and more protein than soybeans. Seaweed is also full of more than 100 vitamins, minerals, and omegas. Our first product is Kelp Jerky, a delicious, nutrient-dense, high protein snack made with locally harvested kelp, top quality shiitake and crimini mushroom stems from all over the Northeast US, and superfoods. We believe it is the world’s most perfect snack! Kelp Jerky is vegan, non-GMO, and free of dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, and gluten. Kelp Jerky comes in 3 flavors: High Thai’d, BBQ, and Sea Salt. We aim to change your perception of sustainable seafood by working with the plants that grow just "beyond the shoreline" of every coast in the world.
“Seaweed is potentially the most sustainable form of agriculture on the planet. Our first product, Kelp Jerky, utilizes nutrient-rich local kelp and mushroom scraps, so it’s good for you and for the planet.”

Neale's Sweet n Nice
Yummy Caribbean Ice Cream!
$3,670
of $3,650
Ended: 8/10/2017
Neale's Sweet n Nice ice cream was first started by our Grandpa Charles A. Neale in Trinidad back in the 1940's. Grandpa created his own ice cream recipes that combined all-natural yumminess and Caribbean goodness to create a delicious treat for locals. He successfully ran Neale's Sweet n Nice ice cream as a small business for more than 30 years before retiring. Nowadays, most of Grandpa's family (12 children, 52 grandchildren, and heaven only knows how many great-grandchildren!) live in Canada and the US, and when we get together we still enjoy the delicious ice cream recipes that Grandpa created. We want to share Grandpa's ice cream with you so that you can enjoy it too, and you'll soon be saying, just like Grandpa did, "Mmm... yummy Sweet n Nice!"
“Life is about those enjoyable moments, and our ice cream is all about enjoyment - down to the very last spoonful!”
