Hands-on Fermenting Workshop for Beginners

We at Acorn Creek Farmstead believe in the health benefits of consuming fermented foods and beverages daily. With 70% of the body’s immune system running through the gut, it is essential to assist it in functioning correctly.

Learn to make homemade fermented kraut and other foods.

A healthy gut is not made healthy by an over-the-counter powdered probiotic but instead by natural foods and beverages created with the help of beneficial live bacteria. Remember, healthy living begins with what you are consuming. 

Individuals worldwide consume fermented foods and beverages daily, yet only a small amount of Americans consume them regularly. So when did making and consuming fermented foods and drinks slip from the norm? Upon arrival of the supermarket. 

The opportunity to consume fermented pickle items, krauts, kefir (milk and water), kombuchas, various kimchi flavors, or homemade sourdough bread is healthy and delicious. Not to mention, extremely easy to make.

We will give you the confidence and skill needed to benefit your health. In addition, we will teach you how to make ferments which every family member will enjoy!
