New Years has come and gone and as we sweep up the confetti and cork the champagne, our thoughts drift to memories of the past year. First and foremost, I'd like to say thank you. This year has been one of tremendous change and growth for Vagabond. We've added new events, new markets, and online sales. We've been lucky enough to get to know even more of the wonderful people who work in the cheese and beer industries, as well as many others dedicated to good food, good drink and good times, including a number of new staff members that I'm so excited to have on our team.
This growth would not have been possible without your support! Your evangelism for our company has left me humbled and grateful, and has made me believe that we can forge a path forward, selling only cheeses that we love and championing producers we believe in.
In 2017, we will continue to expand the number of brewers, producers and artisans we work with, and work toward our goal of a brick and mortar shop. We want to add classes, guided pairings, and similarly minded partners. We are going to double down on our efforts to advocate for slow food and artisan production.
No doubt, this year will bring new challenges. But I have absolute trust that the community and company that we are building will stand stalwart by our dedication to providing a quality of food and experience that everyone deserves.
