Sonoma County Fermentation Festival

From piquant to fiery, humans have always sought to spice up their meals. In this presentation we will take you on a brief tour of how spice moved through the world. You will land in South Asia, where the lesser known facultative sun fermentation developed achar pickles. Our presentation will include a demonstration of this technique and probably a lot of cutting up because we will have just flown in from New York.

Mountain Farm & Feed Demo and Book Signing

As homesteaders for nearly two decades we have spent our fair share of time and money at farm and feed stores. They are more than the products on their shelves - the good ones are a rich source of knowledge about just about anything facing your small holding. The people at Mountain Farm & Feed have been strong supporters of the fermentation revival and our books and its a pleasure to get a chance to share what we know.

Hot Sauce Class at Preserved

Christopher believes good things come from hard cider and Kirsten believes, well, that Christopher believes this to be true. So when we were handed the business card of the proprietor of Preserved, who had heard from this cider maker who was making a delivery that noticed our first book on her shelf that our farm is just down the road from the cidery. We connected, we will be there for a class and couldn't be more thrilled!
