Fermented and pickled food are not the same. The main difference why fermented food is good for health is because of the preserved nutrients and probiotics born during fermentation. Unlike fermentation, during pickling, the hot solution of vinegar (usually unnatural) kills all the beneficial substances and bacteria naturally present in the vegetables.

Many beneficial properties are associated with fermented products. In fact, fermented products are much more valuable to your body than in their fresh form.

When you arrive at Pakruojis manor, you can take a walk around our farm, which is expanding every year, where we grow experimental varieties of vegetables and herbs. It is true that we still cannot grow the necessary amount of vegetables ourselves, so we work closely with organic local farmers, from whom we get the most suitable vegetable varieties for fermentation, selected over many years.
