Great Tasting Fermented

Pickles, Sauerkraut & Kimchi

Made by Tom and Shelley MacDonald, who have been organic farming and following natural principles for over 40 years.

We sell to individuals, stores, health practitioners, farmer’s markets, and festivals in the New York State Finger Lakes region and beyond.

We start with organically grown vegetables from the farm.
Then we naturally ferment, combining time-honored methods with modern knowledge.
Rendering the best tasting probiotic foods for your plate and the human microbiome.

Being east coasters, it made sense to make cucumber pickles. Ours are made with salt brine, garlic, and spices. Never any preservatives, sugar, or vinegar. Who doesn’t love a good pickle?

We have recaptured the art of what used to be done at home on a larger scale. Customers tell us time and time again about how their grandparents traditionally made sauerkraut in the basement. Nature’s perfect food.

Kimchi is one of our best sellers. We make a water style and a Radish Kimchi with low heat so you can eat as much as you want. Taste the full flavor of the cabbage, garlic, and ginger.

“Guided towards your beans”

“I’m just finishing up my first trimester and I’ve never felt this ill. A few days ago I felt literally guided to a jar of your fermented beans. I went back and bought a jar of sauerkraut and pickles. Wow, I’m onto something, because I’m feeling so much better.”
