Become A Sponsor

corn We invite you to sponsor the Wormfarm Institute’s annual Fermentation Fest. Farmers, chefs, artists, poets and cheese makers converge in the beautiful working lands of Sauk County with a series of tastings, demonstrations, cooking classes, art events, brewing seminars, farm tours and more.

Fermentation Fest celebrates live culture in all its forms – from dance to sauerkraut – reminding us that culture surrounds our food and food imbues our culture. From sourdough bread to home-crafted beer, pickles to soy sauce, chocolate to cheese, compost to silage – the Live Culture Convergence has it all.

The signature biennial event is the 50 mile Farm/Art DTour punctuated by temporary art installations, pasture performances and more. This event has garnered national attention as a model for rural creative placemaking, an asset-based interdisciplinary strategy to grow and sustain thriving rural communities.

As a sponsor, thousands of food-conscious, culturally motivated consumers will know your commitment to a bright future for food, farming and the land. Attendance grew from 4,000 to 22,000 in six years! This year organizers expect continued growth.

You will receive promotion in electronic outreach, signage and the Fest’s website. In past year’s we received coverage from the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Midwest Living, Wisconsin Public Radio and Wisconsin Foodie. Marketing efforts will again extend from Chicago to Minneapolis and points between. For more information please browse our website and visit We appreciate your consideration and hope you will join us in supporting this wonderful event.

Please contact us if you would like to participate in Fermentation Fest as a sponsor. We will contact you to explore the programs and the ways you can be involved.
