New restaurant open in Toledo uses local, organic fare

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Fowl & Fodder brings the freshest local ingredients to Toledo food lovers.


  1. For Scott Bowman, it started with a simple concept: Provide fresh, delicious food using the best local ingredients. The idea of using local and even organic ingredients in a restaurant is gaining support in northwest Ohio, but the options for dinging out organic are still limited.

  3. A great plan, right? But even the best plans need funding. So Scott & co. turned to the internet world with the help of popular funding platform, Kickstarter.

  5. "Our goal is to bring scratch-made, local fare to our community by sourcing the best, sustainable ingredients out of northwest Ohio."

  7. The donations started coming in! Scott put together another video to show their progress. Another way that Fowl & Fodder stands apart from the crowd: A lot of the material used in the restaurant itself is recycled from old barns or family property. 
  8. And it worked! Fowl & Fodder hit its Kickstarter goal on May 24. By July they were preparing for their grand opening. A special pre-opening event was held for those who had helped them along the way.
