Sour Cabbage Heads

Sour cabbage is a full head of cabbage, core removed, that has been fermented in a salt brine. It is a traditional Eastern European food, commonly used to make cabbage rolls. Cabbage rolls are an important food for family celebrations, Christmas and Easter.



Sauerkraut is made of shredded cabbage, mixed with salt. The salt helps draw out the natural juices of the cabbage, creating a brine in which the cabbage ferments. It is a traditional food from Germany and much of Europe, commonly eaten with meats, especially pork, to aid with digestion.

our process


Plants are seeded in the greenhouse every two weeks from the middle of March until the beginning of June.


After 5 weeks being in the greenhouse the plants are moved in to the fields. We start transplanting 1st of May and are usually done at the beginning of July.


It takes about 11 or 12 weeks for the plants to fully mature. The harvest begins with summer cabbage (early) and then transitions to winter cabbage (later).


Harvest starts at the beginning of July and we usually finish in the middle of November.


Processing happens as the cabbage is harvested, however we store some cabbage for later processing up to late December to make sure we have a constant supply throughout the whole year.


Our products are vacuum sealed. Cabbage heads are sold in 12kg boxes and sauerkraut in either 500g or 1kg bags or in 16L pail.
