Many of us get into the homesteading lifestyle because of health issues or to regain control of the food we eat.
Gut health is key to our overall health.
Having healthy bacteria in our digestive system help keep our bodies mentally and physically strong.

One way to get cultivate good gut health is my eating fermented foods.
