We haven’t figured out all the logistics yet but a professional butcher from Cambridge, MA might be coming out to do a demonstration of how to cut up a pig. Don’t worry, it’ll already be dead. I know not everyone will be keen on this (although I love to understand where my food comes from and how it is handled), so I think we’ll do it at the beginning or the end of the event.
You should definitely check out their kickstarter page. They are trying to raise money to open a butcher shop.
Akimenko Meats strives to bridge the gap between the city dweller and our local farmers. Our commitment to our neighbors is to bring in local, organic, and sustainable products while supporting the local agricultural community, building customer awareness, ultimately aiding our local economy.

Our latest sponsor is Digital Dads. They write interesting tidbits about their daily lives as parents. Check out their post on family friendly ipad apps. I have a lot of cousins and they love playing with my ipad. Now I have a few more apps to share with them.
These dads also are fond of bacon and sausage.
Thanks Digital Dads!
The stickers came in yesterday. They look fantastic. One of the organizers last year put one of these stickers on his bag and it’s still on there in great condition. These stickers from Stickergiant are built to last.
I also received this cute bag. I love dinosaurs. This bag will be one of the prizes we give away. If you want to buy your own, they are hand made and sold on etsy
I keep posting all these fun prizes, but our presenter’s list isn’t growing. Last year’s Bacone winner was filmed for “What would Brian Boitano Make? (watch it here. Click on “Make bacon with Brian”) Don’t you like the prizes? Fame and glory? Bragging rights?

Stickergiant, a top-notch service I was gladly willing to pay for, is now our latest sponsor. We purchased BaconCamps stickers from them last year and their customer service and quality were fabulous. There was a slight problem with the stickers (ultimately our fault) and they gladly reprinted our stickers and mailed them out within a day.
They are incredibly responsive and helpful and their turnaround time is superfast. I wouldn’t go with anyone else for custom stickers. I’ll post some photos of the stickers as soon as they come in.
I got the official word today that bacon camp will be benefiting the San Francisco food bank. Since our event will undoubtedly involve overindulgence of delicious foods, it’s good to remind ourselves that there are many who are far less fortunate. The SFFB provide food to over 23,500 households each week, delivering 39 million pounds of food a year. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank will distribute $6 worth of food to those in need.
They are a fantastic organization and I am super excited that we can help them help others.
