About Kirsten & Christopher

Kirsten and Christopher Shockey got their start in fermenting foods with their organic food company, where they created over forty varieties of saurkrauts and kimchis.

They teach classes nationally and on their 40-acre hillside homestead in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon, where they have cultivated a handmade life for the last 19 years.
