LOCAL CRAFT, GLOBAL INSPIRATION, LIVING CULTURES

Iggy’s Alive & cultured is a local company with decades of fermenting experience, committed to local farms and organic produce. We combine traditional and innovative techniques to bring out the best of each ingredient.

Our organic, raw, vegan ferments and pickles are inspired by traditions from around the world, reflecting a meeting of cultures and contrasting flavors; an easy and delicious way to include more vegetables and probiotics in your diet. A versatile food to eat by itself, or “elevate your plate” by adding them to your favorite dishes.

And don't forget the save the brine! Leftover brine has so many uses:

  • a probiotic "gut shot"

  • marinade for meats & vegetables

  • base for salad dressing

  • add flavor to sauces or pasta
