Unique Vegetable Ferments

From locally grown organic vegetables harvested in the Bitterroot Valley & Missoula, Montana.

Our Story

House of Ferments creates unique vegetable ferments and kombucha using local and organic ingredients.  We (Erin Belmont and Matt Galiher) started the business in 2016 after years of hobby fermenting and learning about the art and culture of fermentation.  We realized there was a demand for local fermented foods and beverages, and at the same time found that for us fermenting was no longer just a hobby – it was a passion. We decided to use our excitement to build a local source for fermented goods.

Our Mission

We are committed to sourcing local and organic ingredients as much as possible.  Our solid relationships with local farmers are essential to how we operate the business.  All of our business decisions take into account where our supplies are coming from– whether that’s the cabbage for the kraut or the jars that we package in; we support local farms and businesses first, and then branch out from there.  We are most proud of the difference we make in our community by being a part of the local food system.  Sourcing local and selling local keeps ourselves and our neighbors in business.

Organic Fermented Products

Experience the benefit of incorporating fermented foods into your daily diet.

Kombucha is sweet tea fermented by a community of organisms.  Yeast and bacteria work together to ferment the tea into a tangy, effervescent tonic beverage.  We use organic tea from Lake Missoula Tea Company as the base for all our kombuchas.  We use organic sugar and local &/or organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs for our infusions.


Our variety of sauerkrauts are all made using local and/or organic vegetables.  They are fermented in stoneware crocks or stainless steel, and each variety has its own unique flavor based on the spices and fermentation time.  Live fermented sauerkraut is crunchy, delicious, and good for you!


Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish made with napa cabbage, daikon radish, and a blend of spices.  There are lots of different varieties and ways to make kimchi.  Our kimchi is vegan; we do not use fish sauce or sugar in our kimchi. It is tangy, crunchy, and has just the right amount of heat.

Seasonal Creations

Super small batch seasonal and specialty ferments are available at farmers’ markets or in our CSA.  We work with our farmers and use the vegetables that they have an overabundance of or are really excited about for the season.  Seasonal creations include fermented salad turnips, onions, radishes, and kohlrabi kraut.
