Gut Feeling was born from a love of food, travel, health and community. 5 years of international gallivanting found me in the small town of San Marcos at the base of volcanic Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. It was here the penny dropped. My passion for real food met my intrinsic wonder of microbiology when I discovered the ancient art of fermentation. Jarred and Michelle from "Love Probiotics “became instant mentors of mine, the generosity with which they shared their knowledge was matched by my eagerness to learn.
Back in Adelaide, with the help of my wonderful mum I was able to turn a dream into the building blocks of reality. We started out creating small batches of fermented vegetables, trailing flavours and having a bit of fun. I decided early on that this business was always going to be about a lifestyle; creating something truly honest, sustainable and wholesome.
We have certainly evolved throughout the course of that last 2 years to get to where we are now. At the start of 2017 everything started to fall into place and I made the decision to build a commercial kitchen space on the farm of "Starlight Springs" - A small family farm in Myponga specialising in beautiful organically grown heirloom vegetable varieties. It’s an amazing feeling to look out the window at a row of cabbages knowing that they will eventually be the basis of one of our creations. Farm to jar!! Just the way we like it!!
A special thankyou has to be given to the amazing people that surround Gut Feeling and have helped it to get to this point. My amazing Mum, Dad and Sister, my beautiful partner Lauren and great friend Justin who have all made it possible. Love you all!!
