About Urban Farm Fermentory
Founded in March 2010 by entrepeneur Eli Cayer, a Mainer himself, the Urban Farm Fermentory (or UFF) is an experimental fermentation center. We source as many local ingredients as possible in an attempt to highlight and preserve Maine’s unique terroir. Our array of fresh pressed Maine apple cider is spontaneously (or wild) fermented in a Farmhouse style until it’s bone dry & tart. “Spontaneous fermentation” utilizes naturally-occurring yeast in the air and on the fruit, which means even the yeast culture in our cider is local.
Our potent, probiotic Kombucha (fermented tea), with its 1.5% ABV and tart, acidic bite, is one of the few true examples of the form left after the infamous kombucha crackdown of 2010. For more information on our assorted products, please visit the PRODUCTS page, which is currently under development.
