Ferment Pittsburgh’s Justin Lubecki, together with his brother Nick, began a farming project in Spring 2017 to explore what it meant to feed themselves and their families throughout the year. Experimenting with crops and traditional farming techniques with a focus on slow and hand-done, the crops would subsequently be harvested, processed, and preserved naturally.

In the winter the challenge would be to seamlessly transition the stored cupboard and larder into interesting, traditional, and experimental recipes that continue to reflect the Western Pa landscape even in the slumber of deep winter.

This project attempts to explore bridging a harmonious lifestyle, in tuned with the rolling seasons, while also residing in a modern urban place.
