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.

I’ve been buying your sauerkrauts at New Seasons but I can’t find them at the two locations I shop at on the west side of Portland.

Will they still carry your product?

Thanks, Carole

Hi there, Carole –

I no longer sell Curious Farm products to New Seasons.

You can get them direct from my small farm in Cedar Mill/NW Portland. This page lists what I have available at the moment and is updated frequently. Just email or call if there’s something you’d like and when you’ll swing by to pick it up, and I’ll have it in the cooler for you with plenty of ice.

Also, Food Front on NW Thurman Street carries Curious Farm Ginger-Turmeric, Leek-Horseradish, and Nettle Sauerkrauts.
