About Us / Hidden Pond Farm LLC History: Hello,
We are Hidden Pond Farm, artisan producers of organic, raw fermented foods. We are located on the small farm that was Andy's boyhood home, in Wayne County, Indiana. Since 2008 we have been an LLC, and built on our place a state-certified production facility. See more at our website: HiddenPondLLC.com. Our mission is to make and sell the most health-giving foods available.
We call raw fermented foods the "Forgotten Superfoods". These nutrient-dense, health-giving traditional foods have been largely missing from our typical diet for a couple of generations. But raw ferments are making a resurgence, their health-giving benefits remembered as more people take responsibility for their own diet and health and realize the amazing health benefits of fermented foods.
We make Sauerkraut (6 varieties), Beet Kvass (4 varieties), Kombucha (7 varieties), KimChi, Ketchup, BBQ and SuperTonic. These are living foods: nutrient-dense and raw-fermented, they are never heated, and are loaded with live probiotics and enzymes. For our ingredients we use local organic produce whenever possible, supporting local growers and the local economy. We grow some of the produce ourselves as well.
Quality is our watch word. Our products are well received at farmers markets, health food stores and co-ops including the Indianapolis, Chicago, and Dayton areas (see complete list on our website). We receive many comments on the high quality of our products.
We jumped into this business in 2008 in order to pay for our newly acquired farm - a very low investment startup which included a vegetable shredder and 2 crocks. The demand for good raw fermented foods has skyrocketed and by 2010 we built our own state certified kitchen (inside our barn) which was expanded in 2013. Aside from the unexpected renaissance in cultured vegetables and beverages, we also never realized we were hopping on board a burgeoning local movement which we feel is cause for optimism.
