KIMCHI : the world’s most perfect condiment!

napa cabbageAt Curious Farm, we believe there is no better way to preserve a moment in the garden than by making a batch of kimchi. Freshly harvested organic vegetables, gregarious ginger and other sassy spices all come together into nature’s most versatile condiment.

We use a traditional Korean, vinegar-free fermentation process that dates back thousands of years to fuse and invigorate the season’s bounty at its most vital.  Each jar dances with robust flavor and no batch is ever the same. Kimchi lives and ages like wine. No wonder poets have been writing odes to kimchi for 800 years.
