Wormfarm Institute


“Grazin’ in the grass is a gas, baby, can you dig it?”


Fermentation Fest is back this fall with a two-day celebration of live culture in all its forms. For this special Grassland Edition, Wormfarm Institute has partnered with researchers at the Grassland 2.0 project (University of Wisconsin–Madison) to showcase regenerative, grassland-based agriculture. 


Presented at the historic Witwen Park & Campground in Sauk County, WI, the fest will include demos, art, performances from dance to “Grassical” music in an open-air Tabernacle to Scandanavian cow calling, local food, fermented beverages & more. Fermentation Fest is free to attend; concert tickets and tickets for special fermentation events will be available for online purchase starting in mid-August.
