2019 Boston Fermentation Festival Sponsors



Like the previous six Fermentation Fests, this year will be a *free* tour de fermentation composed of insightful speakers, demos, fermented drinks, scientists and authors. Plus we will have a Makers Marketplace with local New England fermentation businesses and a Libations Lounge. See below for all pieces of the festival and check out the full fest program

One centerpiece of the fest will be our all-day (10-4pm) free communal crowd-sourced #KrautMob (sponsored by Boston Organics, Lindentree Farm, Siena Farms, and Soluna Garden Farm!) where everyone will be invited to make sauerkraut together under the guidance of local Kraut Mobsters (read as: fermentation experts). Hope to see you at the fest!
