It all started when a friend gave me a glass of her home brewed kombucha. As they say in the movies,“it was love at first sip!”
Making Kombucha is a lot of fun. It turns on my creative talents
My husband / business partner and I began this journey in early 2018, when I said to him that I had this great desire to sell something. He asked what I wanted to sell? When I told him kombucha, he replied back, “What is kombucha?” I proceeded to educate him of the wonderful tastes and health benefits of kombucha. He signed on.
I took the results of some of my early experiments to work and passed it around to my coworkers. They loved so much that they asked for more. I brewed more and bottled it up in quart canning jars for them. That was my entry into the kombucha trade.
I have been making kombucha since 2017. We didn’t officially go commercial until February of 2019 after spending 6 months constructing our PA Department of Agriculture approved commercial kitchen in our home. During this time, I kept experimenting with flavors to see what was delicious – and what was not. I still keep experimenting!
