Fermentation begins with the soil.
Flavor is an alchemical and traditional art.
Community craftsmanship is key.
Community is sacred. Traditional fermentation occurred in the framework of community and still today we honor those practices by creating a teaching space of our kitchen. We work with local organizations and communties of all incomes to ensure that we bring microbes to the people. Our donation based classes ensure that everyone has access to traditional culinary arts. We build healthy cultures by allowing biodiversity to expresses the highest aspect of itself. Fermented food is soul food. Especially and only if it's crafted with care.
We are people who care.
The Five Points Fermentation Co. Is a collective of herbalists, chefs chemists, nutritionist, alchemists, food waste warriors, community organizers, musicians, poets, teachers and mothers who give a damn. We're building a movement to transform the food system. From soil to shelf we are challenging ourselves and this economic system to eliminate exploitation. We're organizing as a workers cooperative. Experimenting with new models of profit sharing and collaboration with our growers. We even treat our microbes as employees that deserve beauty and abundance. We wanna see the food system transformed. And it begins with folks who care. Join us.
