Hatchery delivers locally-sourced, artisan ingredients and recipes to your home each month.
Hatchery offers a convenient way to prepare exciting, exotic foods without ever having to go to the grocery store. The site is similar to subscription food services such as Blue Apron or Nature Box in that it sends a box of ingredients and recipes to your door each month, but the contents of that box are unique from anything else you’ll find on the web. Hatchery focuses on small-batch, artisan ingredients that are sourced from farms and markets across the country. There’s a high likelihood that many of the brands and ingredients in your box will be unfamiliar, but that’s the most exciting part of the process.
Hatchery’s delivery service begins at $20 month. The site maintains its own marketplace of ingredients, many of which are delivered in a sampling size. This allows subscribers to taste a variety of different products on a regular basis, before ultimately deciding which ingredients to purchase in a larger quantity. It’s a somewhat hefty fee to pay for smaller items, but Hatchery’s marketplace offers anything you enjoy in a bigger size. The site also curates your box based on your individual tastes and preferences, so you’re likely to be delivered products that you enjoy. The site is also good at explaining where food has been sourced from, so it offers access to locally-sourced ingredients, no matter where you are.
