Good to Go is almost Good to Go in Cherry Valley, NY, between Cooperstown and Sharon Springs.

If all goes well, our organic and local takeout food restaurant will be open next week, in historic Cherry Valley New York, between Cooperstown and Sharon Springs.

We’re putting the finishing touches on everything now (although we will probably never actually be finished) and plan to open next week–gradually–starting Monday, August 8th.

We’ll have meatball subs made with organic, local, grass-fed, wagyu beef from Nectar Hills Farm, organic grass-fed beef bone broth (from the same young bull of wagyu beef), roast organic free-range chicken, organic & local garlic greens, organic pasta and grains,  organic & fair trade coffee and tea, organic lavender lemonade, and other assorted organic and local treats.

We’ll post our full takeout food menu as soon as we finalize it.

Organic and Local Takeout Food Doesn’t Happen By Magic

Thanks to our graphic designer Harriet Spear for the wonderful window sign, stickers, business cards, and all our other graphics. Thanks to photographer Mark Reinertson for his photograph of Nectar Hills Farm which now graces our front window and the top of this site. Thanks also to Derrick Marshfield for being a great all around handyman and construction advisor.

And finally, we thank all our crowd-funders who bought shares! We couldn’t have done it without you. Every share we sold took us one small step in the right direction.

Robin’s Letter to Cherry Valley New York Locals

Good to Go Cherry Valley Pizza
Loaded Organic Pizza made with fresh, local ingredients

The following is a letter from Robin Supak to people who live in the upstate area around Cherry Valley New York, including Sharon Springs, Richfield Springs, Roseboom, Cooperstown, and the surrounding towns:

Hello Real Food Lovers,

If you received this letter, it means someone you know thinks you’re interested in a more sustainable and nurturing community, a community where locally grown and prepared food is as important to the soul as fresh air and clean water.

Good to Go is a family-owned, local/organic take-out start-up restaurant that is so close to opening we can taste it, and it tastes amazing.

In July, we received a $22,100 micro-enterprise grant from Otsego County (beating out dozens of other applicants). The grant covers major equipment like an exhaust hood, range, refrigerators & freezers, a water heater, and sinks. Unfortunately, the grant doesn’t cover labor. Using a new crowd-sourcing strategy, we have been selling shares of Good to Go to family, friends, and neighbors for the past year, but we are still $8,000 shy of having the funds to open the store.

And that’s where you come in!

Investors of as little as $100 per share will be paid their share of the LLC profits annually. Six months after opening, we will begin buying back shares in 20 quarterly installments. Stockholders continue receiving their full share of the profits until all shares have been repurchased.

Your investment in this energetic new restaurant will provide Cherry Valley with:

• Locally grown organic meats and veggies
• Multi-day marinades that make even the leanest grass-fed meats succulent
• Sustainable seafood
• Nutritious & deliciously prepared non-GMO food, free of high fructose corn syrup & MSG
• Live foods, like smoothies, kefir, apple cider vinegar, and sprouted foods
• A chef with a fundamental understanding of bio-availability, food pairing & spicing for maximum vitamin, anti-oxidant, and enzymatic absorption
• Personal attention: I’ll make your dishes the way you want them, made with a mother’s love, remembering you & your family’s dietary quirks and restrictions. I’ll generally bend over backwards to make you happy. It’s my M.O.
Investing in Good to Go puts you in the company of distinguished local luminaries, such as: Dr. Michael Geci, Maureen Newman, Donna Harnett, Charlie & Karen Kremer, Rog & Dot Smith (Spurbeck’s Grocery), Angelica Palmer (Green Circle Accounting), Sonia Sola (Nectar Hills Farm), Springfield town supervisor Bill Elsey, and artists Kathy Minnig, Vicki Whicker, and Bill Issac. Acclaimed multidisciplinary designer Harriet Spear is earning shares creating our logo!

I hope you’ll want to join this growing community of healthy, dedicated people who appreciate the importance of locally grown, locally sourced, and most importantly, locally prepared & distributed food.

In Food I Trust,
Robin Supak

Cooperstown Crier Covers Good to Go Grant

The Cooperstown CrierThe Cooperstown Crier ran a story about Good to Go’s micro-enterprise grant yesterday.

Good to Go, a new farm-to-counter takeout restaurant in Cherry Valley, has been awarded a $22,100 micro-enterprise grant from Otsego County. Good to Go focuses on local, regional, organic and other healthy food.

The story focuses on our finances and mentions that we’re still looking for investors. It also mentions our commitment to local and organic food, and why we think it’s important to feature local food–it’s fresher, healthier, better for the environment, and by featuring local food, we can keep our money in the local community.

The story also mentions our commitment to grass-fed meats, which are better for you, the animal, and the planet.
