Corina is proud to announce her online fermentation course, where you learn how to make Greek yogurt, beet kvass, sauerkraut, kombucha and no-knead bread. It’s a self-paced course with beautiful ebooks, demonstration movies filmed in Corina’s kitchen, and a private Facebook group to build community and ask questions.

.: Little Red Barn Produce
Little Red Barn Produce was born out of my love for gardening and wanting to grow good food to help feed my large family. However, I always grew too much! So, in order to find a way to both provide my family with healthy, naturally grown, fresh food, and to make the best use of our resources, I started Little Red barn Produce. I sell my produce on Lanelocalfoods.com, and at the Veneta Downtown Farmers Market. In addition we also provide weekly produce boxes. And yes, we do deliver! (=
