I had intended to write about this project long ago; through a comedy of self-invoked errors, I failed to do so until now. I am so excited for the folks at FARMcurious who have clearly mixed a great idea and the willingness to take a risk to make it happen.
They’ve beaten their goal by more than 300%!
This project is intended to help people learn to ferment while also giving experienced fermenters a way to ferment small batches with ease. The fermenting kits include a ReCap kit and an airlock. We’ve used similar homemade contraptions; it’s an awesome system! The airlock makes it very difficult for mold to form and makes fermenting a breeze.
In addition to the kits, there’s something bigger about supporting a project like this; this project supports some amazing people who are trying to make a difference. I don’t know Nicole personally but we do share some friends, have traded a few emails and I love how she’s brought so many people from the preserving community together through her project. When you support this kickstarter you aren’t supporting an anonymous organization but a person, driven by passion, who is chasing a dream. And that gets me excited.
Just because they’ve met their goal doesn’t mean there’s no reason to support. There’s still plenty of incentives left including a double-fermenting set and recipe collection for $33!
