About Wild Earth Fermentation
WEF is a mission to embolden vegetables through fermentation and allow them to be enjoyed in a naturally-preserved state throughout the whole year. Through the WWOOF program and traveling on their “Slow Tour” by Bicycle, founders Bri & Grant learned from and worked on over a dozen small farms. They learned a deep respect for these farmers, their land and how important and precious the food coming from these places is. Their hope is to provide greater access and understanding of the benefits of fermented vegetables so that they become more essential to the diets and health of their friends, family, and community in Richmond and Virginia.
Garden Spice Kraut
Favorite among many customers and an Original of ours; a Savory Sauerkraut featuring familiar flavors of Celery, Garlic, Cumin, and Black Pepper. Adds well to sandwiches and pairs with Proteins, and Hummus.
Clean Caraway Kraut
Our most Bavarian-style Kraut with the classic taste of Caraway Seeds. Perfect for adding fermented Crunch and Flavor to meals. It’s a close to Plain as we are willing to go! Sometimes it the perfect option.
Lemon Beet Sauerkraut
A Sauerkraut with beautiful color and excellent choice to pair with Poultry dishes and Salads. It has Rosemary, Thyme, Dulse in there adding deep and surprising flavors and health benefits.
A ferment blending thick-cut Turnips and Carrots with Smoked Sea Salt resulting in a hearty, satisfying condiment/topping. Think unique and smoky pickles.
An aromatic blend of Fennel, Juniper ground into Sauerkraut with a sprinkling of Caraway seeds. This Sauerkraut is good for lightening up heavy dishes and being eaten right out of the jar. Its become a favorite of ours.
Our spin on the Appalachian-Southern tradition of canning assortments of vegetables for Winter. We chose to Ferment it up and make it more fresh and healthful yet Savory, using Green Tomatoes, Carrots, Onion, Celery, Mustard and more. Does well where Kraut does, and very well with Fish, Greens, Tacos, and Chili.
Aubergine - Eggplant Spread
A Local-styled Tapenade- good for Cheese Plate or Charcuterie. Very rich Italianesque Spread with Basil, Oregano & Olive Oil.
Mexi-Cali Street Corn
Spicy Corn & Jalapenos- what’s not to love?! They make killer Tacos, Eggs, and anything else – really, anything..
Wildfire Hot Sauce
The Original WEF Hot Sauce- balanced Heat, great color and flavor for all Hot Sauce needs. Uses many types of peppers and loads of them!
Smokey, Green and Fierce- a Salsa Verde worth the space in your fridge. Boasting flavors of Garlic, Lemon and Brown Sugar with Green Peppers & Tomatoes.
