Organic, all the way. We pride ourselves in the creative, artisanal combinations of vegetables and spices, and our use of the ancient art of brine lacto-fermentation, but before we even think about what goes on in the kitchen, we focus on what happens at the farm.
Using only certified organic ingredients (from partners like Great River Organics) is the foundation of a high-quality kraut because healthy soil supports vegetables with higher nutrient density. Plus, organic soil microbes are actually the starter cultures for our raw wild fermentation process.
“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”
—Wendell Berry, Poet & Farmer
