Rachel Armistead from The Sweet Farm Talks About Changing Her Business Due to Covid-19

On this episode we have Rachel Armistead from The Sweet Farm. Many people know The Sweet Farm from their fermented products such as sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles and ginger beer. They were the first business licensed to sell sauerkraut in the state of Maryland. They also had a successful food truck that served their fermented products along with grilled sausages.

They recently made the decision to stop using the food truck, and to end production of the krauts, focusing solely on the production of their ginger beer. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, they lost much of their existing ginger beer business, and have decided to pivot again. Hear Rachel tell her story, and learn more about the pasture-raised pork business they’re focusing on. If you live in the Frederick, Maryland area, you can go to their website https://www.thesweetfarm.com/ to learn more, and to order some pork.

Some of the people and businesses mentioned are: Sandor Katz, Boxcar Burgers, Full Cellar Farm, Open Book Farm, 1,000 EcoFarms, Pleasant Hill, Produce, McClintock Distilling, Tenth Ward Distilling, Idiom Brewing Company
