Welcome!

Junebug Ferments is a tiny plant alchemy business making small batch naturally wild fermented, live Krauts, Beet Kvass, Fine brines, and wildcrafted herbal tinctures, located in the fertile Skagit Valley Washington where the sea meets the mountains.

Using the ancient practice of wild fermentation, using no heat, vinegar or pasteurization, this transformation is called Laco-fermentation, turning vegetables into a uniquely delicious and more nutritious product with massive gut healing benefits.

Simply organic local plants, time, patience and love.
Vegetables are sourced from certified organic Skagit valley family farmers. All wild herbs are foraged and picked by me, responsibly with respect to mother nature, never overpicking wild plants and berries.

“Let food be thy medicine & medicine be thy food”

-Hippocrates

Why gut health is important!

Second to the brain our gut has the largest amount of neurons in out bodies, Over 100 trillion bacteria call the gut home, so it makes sense to do whatever we can to create the best environment for good gut flora to flourish in.

With its trillions of micro organisms , the gut makes up 75% of our immune system, regulates our metabolism and digestion and is linked to our mental health among other diseases , bad gut health has been linked to autism, depression, autoimmune disorders, IBS, obesity and more.

Creating good gut health is like creating healthy fertile soil for all of your other systems to grow strong.

Fermented foods will help you on your healing journey to health and well being.

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”

– Thomas Edison
