Southern WildOrganic Tasmanian Cultured Foods

Grown and made in Tasmania. Sold direct and exclusive to the good people of our island home.


We are a small family-owned fermentary based in Southern Tasmania. We specialize in the creation of handcrafted small-batch ferments derived from organically grown Tasmanian ingredients.

We sell direct to Tasmanians through Australia’s first Ferment Box membership program and our Sunday stall at Farmgate Market.

Our products

Members and market patrons enjoy our:

  • Sauerkraut & Kimchi
  • Tasmania’s only fresh Tempeh
  • Pickles, Miso, Shio Koji, and more…

It’s all vegan, unpasteurised, and alive with probiotic cultures for optimal health and wellbeing. Our product range is seasonal. If you’d like to get a better sense of what we offer follow us on instagram.

We’re small by design

Tassie has some of the best growing and fermenting conditions on the planet. Staying small means we can do right by a select group of local, ethical growers and reduce our environmental footprint.
