Real Food is Good Medicine

Triple Bottom Line

Fat Bean Farm & Food Co. is focused on Real Food and Food as Medicine. We grow sustainably on our farm, we ferment in our Brinery and we are serve from our food truck and festival booth. This focus on Real Food is at the heart of our business model. We operate with a triple-bottom line mentality, that means financial, communal, and environmental.

We like to eat and serve food that not only taste good, but feels good.

Festival Food Vending

At Fat Bean Farm and Food Co. we are passionate about Real Food. At festival you will see bushel baskets of gorgeous fresh produce fresh ingredients being made into salsas and slaws.  You will see dough being made onsite and tortillas cooked fresh to order.  We sourced many of our ingredients from farmers in our vibrant community. All our meats are of the highest quality; humanely raised, hormone, antibiotic, nitrate and additive free! We feature our raw, wild fermented, local sauerkraut and kimchi for all the added benefits of the new sixth food group!  Every. Single. Thing. that we put in front of anyone is made from scratch!

Kraut, Kimchi & Kvass

Fermentation is how it all started. Kris was allergic to dairy and I was having trouble with wheat. At the same time we started experimenting with ferments. Making our own kimchi and kraut and then later kvass. Delighted with the culinary experience and noticing the immediate energy boost the kvass gave, we knew we had stumbled upon something that was missing entirely in the average American diet. Not long after, Kris could eat dairy again and I can enjoy wheat in all forms if accompanied by a fermented food.
