Wild Fest — Forage, Ferment, FEAST!

In case you’ve missed it, here is the latest project we’ve been working on here at Sustainable Kentucky…. Wild Fest, Kentucky’s only festival dedicated to wild and fermented foods. The festival will take place rain or shine on April 19th at the farm of our dear friends Cedar Creek Vineyards in Somerset.

Many of you have enjoyed our signature event, the Kentucky Green Living Fair, in the past. Wild Fest will be a different sort of event, emphasizing in-depth learning. We are only selling a limited number of tickets, which means a much more intimate experience for you and smaller workshop sizes. Come prepared to delve deeply into the topics of wild and fermented food.

We have the most impressiveworkshop lineup that we’ve ever put together, including a keynote by Sandor Katz, bestselling author of Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation. Other special guests include Master storyteller and naturalist Doug Elliott, Jesse Frost of Rough Draft Farmstead, Jim Scheff of Kentucky HeartwoodThe Kentucky Forager, and Rachel Milford of Reclaiming Your Roots. (Lots of other great presenters, too—check out our presenter page.)


The king of fermentation, Sandor Katz, will be giving our keynote and signing books afterwards. Don’t miss it!

We are also very excited that the Fermentation on Wheels project will be joining us. These cool folks have been traveling the country (from Portland, OR!) spreading fermentation love (and starter cultures) wherever they go. They will be bringing their biodiesel-powered bus to WildFest to learn and share with us.
