Kefir and Kombucha Made Easy

Come and gain confidence to get fermenting...

Looking for a fun and healthy way to boost your family’s gut health?

In this Kefir and Kombucha class we’ll teach you everything you need to know, from choosing the best ingredients to fermenting, bottling, and adding flavours to your kefir and kombucha creations.

But this class is about more than just making great-tasting beverages. It’s about improving your gut health and supporting your overall wellbeing. Kefir and kombucha are packed with probiotics, which can help improve digestion, boost your immune system, and even improve your mood and energy levels.

And don’t worry – we’ll make it easy and approachable, even for beginners. You’ll leave our class feeling confident and excited to try making your own kefir and kombucha at home.

Our expert instructors will guide you through the entire process, sharing tips and tricks for making the perfect batch every time.

We are big believers in the power of natural remedies and holistic approaches to healthcare and the origins of our food. And when it comes to gut health, kefir and kombucha are two of our favourite tools.

And the great news is, you don’t need any special skills or equipment to make them at home.
