Townshend Pizza Hippo Stand is a GO Baby!

Pizza Hippo thanks everyone who generously gave both financial and emotional support to this now funded project.  Especially the financial supporters.  (And a special thanks to Homegrown.org for curating our Kickstarter page.)All joking aside, the overwhelming support of my friends is nothing short of an extraordinary vote of confidence to me, to the Pizza Hippo concept, and to the philosophy of sustainable agriculture.While the uncertainties of opening a business often ravage my psyche and…See More

Pizza Hippo Goes to Brattleboro Farmer's Market Jury Day

Today is the Brattleboro Farmer's Market Jury Day."What is this?" you ask. It's the day where everyone who wants to take part in the market shows up with product to be judged by a very, how do I say, tightly... knit group of folks who run the show.Its a little nerve wracking as these things have a reputation for being political and similar to Greek Rush week. As you may or may not know, I never rushed. Draw your own conclusions as to why ;) Hopefully, these are just rumors, everyone will be…See More

Hello, and welcome back to the Outlandish Dreams blog. I've got to say that un-outlandish dreams are okay, like dreaming for a dishwasher, but the bigger ones really get me going.Today we booked our inspection with the health department. May 1 at 9AM. The inspector seems incredibly reasonable, and to boot, he LOVES the name Pizza Hippo. I even got him to say, "It Hits the Spotamus!" Yeah! Nothing is more entertaining to me than getting serious adults to say, "It Hits the Spotamus!" How anyone…See More

Fire Grilled Pizza in Southern Vermont

Southern Vermont has an amazing food culture for lack of a better descriptor.  Everyone gardens, farms, raises animals, brews cider, kambucha, pickles, cures, and generally eat like kings. When I moved here a few years ago, I got involved with making sourdough breads.   What could possibly be better than fresh sourdough bread, piping hot from the oven, butter melting and steaming on the crusty crust right before "chomp" and "ahhhh"?One day last summer, we had a cold night and the dough didn't…See More
