Farm Crafted | Fermented Peach Extract
This peach fruit extract is made with love on a small farm near Paonia Colorado using natural probiotic farming practices.
Derived From: Orchard Grown Peaches, Clean Mountain Water, molasses, sorghum syrup, Lactic Acid Bacteria sourced from local goat whey, Super Cera Powder, and EM-1. This is then fermented until the peach fruit is digested and extracted into the liquid and the sugars are consumed by the microbes to lock in the PH for stability and ease of use in the garden.
Since starting BuildASoil we’ve been preaching DIY techniques. This particular fermented plant extract is made from ripe peach fruit, and all the information we have about fermenting your own extracts suggests that you should start with the part of the plant that you wish to grow. For instance, if you wish to get faster vegetative growth you would ferment fast-growing green leaves to feed to your plants. However, if you wished to grow bigger flowers, you should ferment flowers to feed your plants. It is with this idea, we fermented peach fruit to be used as an all-natural bloom booster for your garden.
Lactobacillus varieties are:
- Ubiquitous, meaning they are everywhere!
- Facultative or surviving in both aerobic and anaerobic environments.
- Microaerophilic, which is biology speaks for preferring environments with less oxygen than typical environmental air – like soil.
- Rod-shaped bacillus means “wand” or “small staff”- the “magic wand” because fermentation has an alchemical nature of transmuting raw materials into more nutritious valuable preparations.
- Heterofermentative translates to producing a variety of outputs including nutrients, CO2, yeasts, acids, and carbohydrates, which plants crave.
- Antipathogenic in biology can mean that effective and beneficial microbes outcompete and overcome “the bad guys,” or pathogenic microbes, often present in decomposition.
“Fermentation with lactobacillus offers a natural means to modify nutritional and flavor properties of foods, and strains have crucial effects on it.”
