Naturally Fermented

All of our fermented products are raw and alive, they are fermented the "old fashion" way without using vinegar to maximize the amount of probiotics and enzymes within the product. Being that they are alive, they need to be kept refrigerated and all of our products are stored in a commercial fridge to ensure they are kept at the correct temperature before getting into your hands. 

What's the difference between our fermented products and the others you would find at your local Supermarket?

To start, our products are 100% natural, handcrafted, handpicked, using simple non GMO ingredients. Absolutely no preservatives, filler or water ever added. The majority of products you would find at the supermarket are pasteurized which means they are cooked and are filled with preservatives, this drastically reduces the amount of probiotics and enzymes within the product. We have very high standards and keep you (our customer) top of mind, along with ensuring our products are sustainable for the environment.
