There the Wienke family gives us a tour of their farm and market, as well as a demo of their pickling process. In Act Two, we travel to Reedsburg, WI to visit the annual Fermentation Fest. Donna Neuwirth, Fermentation Fest organizer, takes us on the 50 mile loop tour of art and food that is Fermentation Fest.
