Description

A Wormfarm Institute Initiative

There’s something brewing in the crocks, kettles and jugs in Reedsburg, Wisconsin this October 4-13, 2014. If it can be cultured or fermented, you’ll sample it and learn about it at the Reedsburg Fermentation Fest!

Classes, Tastings and more

Each weekend, the Fest features a series of tastings, cooking classes, farm tours, and brewing seminars celebrating local abundance.  From cheese making techniques and home-crafted beer secrets to yogurt and pickling made simple, the Live Culture Convergence has it all!

Forty classes will be held by experts on topics from fermented foods to beekeeping and sustainable agricultural practices. Festivalgoers will learn take-home skills, enjoy samples, and experience hands-on what fermented foods have to offer.

We offer Farm Tours along the DTour route, bringing festivalgoers closer to land and food. Registration is necessary, so be sure to get your tickets.

The Farm/Art Dtour

The Farm/Art DTour is a 50-mile self-guided backroads tour by car, bike or buggy through the beautiful, unglaciated hills and valleys of Sauk County that carries over the full 10-day event.

The DTour is punctuated by temporary art installations and artist-built mobile Roadside Culture Stands selling fresh, locally grown produce. You’ll also find Field Notes (rural culture education sites), Farm Forms (creations made by farmers, area businesses and community groups) Pasture Performances and more!

The Reedsburg Fermentation Festival website currently contains specific information about the 2013 event, and will be updated in Spring, 2014.
