Video: Farms and Fermentation

Fermentation Fest is an annual 10-day event where farmers, artists, and the community come together to celebrate all forms of fermentation.

As research for best practices for creative placemaking in Milwaukee, the Greater Milwaukee Committee sponsored a group trip of discovery to Fermentation Fest’s Farm/Art DTour in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, last October to explore some of the leading work in the field. This video features highlights from the adventure, that expands on the previously published Photo Essay.

Wormfarm Institute produces the annual Fermentation Fest in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, across the area farmland. Each weekend during the event features a series of tastings, lectures, and hands-on classes include cheese making techniques, home-crafted beer secrets, and yogurt making. Authors, chefs, bakers, scientists, chocolatiers, and cheesemakers provide plenty of food for thought. Classes are held by experts on topics from fermented vegetables and hot sauces, to chocolate and coffee fermentation. Attendees learn take-home skills, enjoy samples, and experience hands-on what fermented foods have to offer.

The Farm/Art DTour is a 50-mile self-guided backroads tour by car, bike or buggy through the beautiful hills and valleys of Sauk County, that stretches over the full 10-day event. The DTour is punctuated by temporary art installations and artist-built mobile Roadside Culture Stands selling fresh, locally grown produce.

The Greater Milwaukee Committee is a private sector civic organization whose mission is to contribute to the cultural and economic base of the Milwaukee Metropolitan area. The organization was formed in the late 1940s and is comprised of leaders in business, the professions, labor, education and philanthropy, nonprofit community development.
