Lauren Elbe and Sheldon Lawrie co-founded Pure Earth Superfoods in July 2017 as a passion project dedicated to preserving traditional food-ways and supporting local agriculture through sourcing local, in-season produce. They are excited to share their knowledge and fermented products with everyone in our community!

From Lauren:
"Fermented foods have enchanted my curiosity and near obsession for the past half decade.
After countless experiments, sometimes ending in explosions and accidental alternative life forms being created. I finally started understanding the nature of fermentation and was able to produce predictably amazing results. Learning fermentation from scratch through reading books and online recipes was very difficult for me because there are so many sensory cues that ferments express. I believe the best way to learn the art of fermentation is through training your senses by direct experience.

Fermented foods have been an essential food all over the world for millennia. Fermentation is a natural process that breaks down the carbohydrates and sugars found in vegetables and transforming them into a bio-diverse ecology of beneficial probiotic bacteria, vitamins, antioxidants and digestive enzymes. The Magic of Fermentation is that it is only food preservation technique that improves the nutrient content of the original foods through the craft this natural energy."
