Fermentation Lives Here

Farm Ferments was established in 2017 as a mission-based Fermentation Facility. We are a modern fermentation and packing facility staffing a 15 person team that is pioneering fermented vegetable production at scale in service of the farmers, eaters, and soil of the Hudson Valley and beyond. Farm Ferments pursues true partnership, valuing collaboration and respect. We value success holistically in our project across several parameters including: regenerative land management; a viable, financially sustainable business; and the degree to which our work is catalytic and transformative.


We believe the best food is made with a touch of wild energy and organic ingredients from our friends and neighbors. We use wild fermentation and naturally occurring bacteria to capture the freshness of local produce and create nutrient rich, raw, probiotic vegetables, sauces, and beverages.

We are fascinated by the ancient wisdom of fermentation. We strive to create and innovate new ways to incorporate live foods into our modern diet, bringing raw, probiotic, fermented foods to the people.


Flavorful and spicy fermented hot sauces. Raw • Live • Probiotic

Sauerkraut, kimchi & kraut juice. Unconventional by Nature.


Support of organic regenerative agriculture, workers rights, and fair treatment of farmers is at the heart of our work. We are fortunate to work with many talented producers in our region.
