Excited to announce that Billy Corgan and online specialty market Farm To People have collaborated on a small-batch, artisanal tasting box. The limited edition gift basket, which retails for $129.95 and makes a perfect Father's Day gift, was curated by Mr. Corgan and is filled with some of his favorite handcrafted products and tea from his destination tea house in Chicago, Madame Zuzu's. Mr. Corgan has been a huge supporter of Farm To People since their launch in 2013 and shares the company's love and support for the independent food movement.
The gift box is a limited run and includes unique vegan and paleo treats like Sprouted Hazelnut Butter from Jem Raw Organics in California, Bourbon Smoked Sea Salt from Bourbon Barrel Foods in Kentucky, Chunky Coconut Raw Chocolate Bars from Fine & Raw in Brooklyn, Honey Mustard from Mustard Girl in Wisconsin and lots more. Mr. Corgan is even planning to include a handwritten, personalized note for three lucky recipients (think Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket!). The box is available nationwide via Farm To People’s website for both immediate delivery and Father's Day delivery. High-res images are attached.
"All over the country, there are passionate makers creating wholesome, tasty products with real ingredients,” says Mr. Corgan. “By teaming up with Farm To People, I hope to support some of my favorite small businesses, and get their names and delicious products out to a larger community of conscious eaters."
In addition to the limited edition gift set, Mr. Corgan has also curated Farm To People's "Food Critic" ($49.95) subscription box for the month of June. Subscribers will receive tea from Madame Zuzu's, along with many other small-batch surprises handpicked by Mr. Corgan.
