Speaker: Andy McLeod, Scratch Farm

Join Andy McLeod of Scratch Farm to learn about making your own fermented sauerkrauts, pickles and hot sauce. Fermenting is an easy way to preserve your harvest and feed yourself through the winter. Andy will touch on what crops he grows to ferment, tips for success in growing those crops, the process of fermentation and the kitchen tools he has come to love. Scratch Farm is a small organic farm in Bowdoin with an on-farm commercial kitchen. Andy grows, makes and sells a wide variety of canned, dried, fermented and frozen foods, as well as fresh produce. For more information about Scratch Farm:
