Mission Statement


The goal of this publication is to preserve, celebrate, and share fermentation stories. More than a food magazine, Fairmentation is a forward-thinking publication that explores our cultural, artistic, and scientific world through the lens of fermentation.

We think that fermentation is not only a technical process but also a social and cultural one. Fermentation is ancient, and rooted in the culture of societies found everywhere in the world. Fermentation inspires art, literature, poetry, painting. We believe that it connects people, changing our way to interact and develop relationships.

Four times a year, we seek out journalists, experts, writers, and craftspeople who want to be part of spreading the legacy of this curious and wonderful world. After all, it is all part of a larger story.
