ANNUAL SAUERKRAUT DEMO IN EARLY NOVEMBER

Our annual sauerkraut demonstration will be Saturday, November 2, 2019 at our Pennington farm located at 260 Wargo Road, from 10am to noon. The fee is $35.00, and includes all the materials to make your own batch (approximately 4 gallons) of sauerkraut to take home. Uncle Emil Nehila has been conducting the farm’s sauerkraut demonstration for many years now, and it’s always been the highlight of our fall season!Participants are paired up and given a cabbage cutter to share between the two of them. Our own certified organic cabbage is shredded into bins using these cutters, and then pounded using handmade “stompers”. Once the cabbage is salted, plastic bags are filled with water to use as a weight for the top of the sauerkraut bucket each participant brings home with them. We provide the recipe for participants to bring home. The demonstration will take place in the farm’s greenhouse, so please dress in layers, and please know that this is an event appropriate for adults only. Click HERE for registration form.
