What is the Cultured Community?
The Cultured Community is an online community of like minded people who share common interest in all things fermented. It’s a cross-pollination of the fermented industries via an online platform which encourages discussion around topics of mutual benefit ranging from recipe and technique sharing to unpacking the increasingly popular world of fermented food. The community consists of fermentation novices looking to learn, business owners and fermentation pros. We celebrate entrepreneurial spirit and encourage a collaboration of culture in the battle versus the bland.
What The Cultured community members have to say.
In the same way it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to advance an idea to a sustainable reality. That’s what The Cultured Community makes possible.

“It’s pretty sweet to have a community of people who love the complexity and delicious chaos found in fermented food and drink. Well, actually, they generally like it dry, but that’s another story. Even if you’re just reading, Fermented and The Cultured is a fascinating place that WILL lead you to eat and drink better.

Every new community needs a spiritual home, and The Cultured is that home for the fans of all things fermentation. Not just beer. Not just wine. Not just bread. But that magical place where all of these things intersect.
