YOU BETCHA KIMCHI
YOU BETCHA FERMENTCHA!
Our new name reflects some exciting upcoming new products as well as an acknowledgment that our ferments are a midwestern take on traditional foods from a culture that is not our own. Our kimchi recipe is and has always been directly inspired by the Korean dish that has been a central part of Korean cuisine and culture for centuries. Changing our business name and product line was an important step as we continue working toward our vision of a more equitable and inclusive food system. Stay tuned for more amazing ferments coming in 2023.
What hasn’t changed: healthy, organic ingredients sourced directly from underrepresented farmers and probiotic goodness in each and every jar since 2013.
In gratitude and fermentation,
Iman + Joe
WHAP! YOU FEEL THAT?
That was a gingerific, smooch right on our tastebuds. Welcome to the land of fresh, crispy, probiotic goodness, made with 100% direct-sourced ingredients from local family farms.
You may ask yourself:
"Could something this tasty be good for me?"
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
With a short chop and quick fermentation, our fresh ingredients create probiotic, crunchy, tangy midwest-styled ferments that are good for your gut and tasty as heck!
Uniquely, we source all our organic ingredients directly from small, locally owned and underrepresented family farms—supporting the health of their land and business. In 2022 alone, we purchased over 50,000 pounds of organic produce right from our own Midwest backdoor!
This here's Minnesota Nice. It's our mildest kimchi with nary a hot chili within the confines of its glass jar. But don't go thinking it's some floppy sail. No chilies allows our local ginger and garlic to really shine and the carrots and daikon radish to pop their combination of sweet and light spice. And well, isn't that nice?
New to kimchi? Check out our Midwest twist on the Korean classic!
