We Believe Local = Quality

Our Story

Hello, I am Donald Pendagast, and I am the founder of Curated CT. I've always wanted to make it convenient to enjoy the tastes and flavors from across Connecticut supporting local farm stands, emerging bakers, and up-and-coming artisans from the area.


We built Curated CT for those of us who value locally made artisan products. Curated CT sources, bundles, and delivers it all right to your doorstep—going beyond magazines and podcasts telling you how wonderful foods, farms, and experiences are and regularly enjoy them for yourself. Connecticut has so much to offer and we are excited to partner with small businesses. Our goal is to make a locally-made goods accessible to folks busy pursuing their lives while creating new ways for exceptional small business owners and artisans and promote their work. We designed Curated CT for those of us who value locally made artisan products and the community. In the world of free-shipping and big-box stores, we believe in greater consumer choice — that convenience isn't reserved just for big business nor does it need to involve the downgrading of experience into human-less transactions.


From support and encouragement by the Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation at UConn and reSET we are pushing towards our goal to make a local lifestyle easier than ever.


Our journey to create local moments has only just begun.
