We are Humble House, a niche small business based in the great state of Wisconsin. We provide fermented food lovers with affordable quality home fermentation equipment and simplified home fermentation guidance, ranging from quick tips to complete recipes.

Whether you are in the beginning stages of exploring the benefits of eating fermented foods or have been making traditional sauerkraut according to your grandmother’s recipe for years, there is something here for you!




After years of research and mounting health success stories, the benefits of consuming fermented foods are widely documented and increasingly well-known. Teeming with “good bacteria” and probiotics, fermented foods and beverages, like kombuchasauerkraut, kimchi, and sour pickles, have seen enormous growth in popularity in grocery stores and restaurants alike.


Trend Chart of Popularity of Fermented Foods and Home Fermentation Over Time
According to Google Trends, interest in the “Fermented Foods” Search Term has been steadily increasing since around 2011


Consuming fermented foods has been shown to improve digestion, strengthen your immune system, and reduce inflammation that can cause skin conditions like eczema, acne, and rashes!

But, did you know that you can make your favorite fermented foods and beverages at home?

And, did you also know that foods and beverages fermented at home are both cheaper and have more health benefits than store bought varieties?


Home Fermentation Sauerkraut Kimchi Pickles Fermented Foods
Home fermentation is the best way to get your favorite fermented foods (like pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi and more!) at an affordable price and with the highest amount of nutrients and probiotics. And, home fermentation has never been easier!




That’s right! When you make your own fermented foods at home, in addition to being able to buy organic ingredients, you are able to achieve a much higher level of probiotics and nutrients than is available in products for purchase from the grocery store.

This is because the FDA and USDA require food companies to subject their products through processes like pasteurization before they reach the shelves, which essentially kill off all of the “good bacteria” and eliminate the probiotic health benefits of fermented foods.

But not to worry, because…




Making your own fermented foods is ridiculously easy!

Water seal fermentation crocks dramatically simplify the the home fermentation process while simultaneously reducing the potential for bad batches. Not to mention, water seal fermentation crocks are the traditional way Asians and Europeans have fermented foods for centuries!

You might be wondering “Why can’t I just use what’s lying around my kitchen?” like mason jars or other glass vessels. While it is possible to use everyday items, if you’re looking for the safest and easiest way to make large quantities of high quality fermented foods, we highly recommend investing in a water seal fermentation crock.

Avid home fermenters swear by them and their ability to make the best batches of fermented foods every time. And thanks to rise in popularity of fermented foods and hobbies like home brewing, winemaking and home fermentation, water seal fermentation crocks are more affordable than ever!
