Locally grown fresh ingredients, original homemade recipes, and lots of love yield an end product that is as delicious as it is good for you!

Since 2017, Food Waste Reduction and Recovery WNC has held quarterly meetings throughout the the state’s westernmost counties as part of its ongoing mission to unite, educate and support communities in ending food waste and food insecurity. On Saturday, Feb. 23, the group will continue its efforts with a gathering at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Services building in Marshall.
Fermenti jars living, probiotic-rich foods, including beets, carrots, pickles, krauts and lemons along with hot sauces and minced garlic. Chamberlain’s mission is to educate folks on the health benefits of fermented foods, maintaining a full workshop and educational outreach schedule, including regular appearances at six area farmers markets. “I think the fermentation community is just starting to, well, ‘ferment,'” she says. “What started with beer and cider is blooming into charcuterie, kimchi, sauerkrauts, cheeses, tempeh/hempeh, shrubs, vinegars, sourdoughs, teas, chocolates and more.”
Instead of calling Asheville Beer City, she muses, “Why not Ferment City? I think we have a lot of incredible makers learning their craft now. Our fermented future is bright here in the mountains.”

"Even Chamberlain’s chickens get gut-healthy foods, including fermented and fresh vegetable scraps and even fermented locally grown, organic corn. “We knew about feeding the chickens ferments from our time homesteading, but we only recently started feeding it to our home pets within the last three years,” says Chamberlain."-Gina Smith, Mountain XPress January 17th, 2020
"Fermenti-So many of the delicious fermented things we enjoy in this town are created by Meg Chamberlain at Fermenti. From what I understand, fermenting requires a license and is subject to other regulations that make it difficult for most restaurants to do it on the premises. Thanks to Fermenti, they don't have to! Mad respect for Meg, who found a niche and filled it with funky fermented things! - Stu Helm
Three fermentation experts weigh in on one of the most common problems in fermenting vegetables: mold prevention. The fermenters include fermentation chef David Zilber (head of fermentation at Noma) and fermented sauerkraut producers Meg Chamberlain (co-owner of Fermenti Farm) and Courtlandt Jennings, (founder and CEO of Pickled Planet and TFA advisory board member).
"Meg Chamberlain, owner of Fermenti Foods with husband Lars Peterson, also farms her Madison County land and took an experimental approach to seed and pod. She sowed seeds in three locations using growing methods ranging from benign neglect to cozy morning coffee talks with some plants"
