Check out these great gift options for people who like to make it themselves!
For everyone who likes tasty, zingy, healthy kombucha! This kit has everything needed to make a one-gallon batch of this increasingly popular (and kind of pricey) beverage. Kit includes a one-gallon pickle jar, organic tea, cheesecloth, adhesive thermometer, and one live SCOBY.
Great projects to do with kids or grandkids! Make your own bagels and cream-cheese; or pretzels and beer cheese; or a nice batch of rich, creamy Italian cheese or tangy goat cheese in your very own kitchen. You just need to supply the milk, and these kits have all the other ingredients needed to cook up some D-I-Y deliciousness!
Fermented foods have been made across cultures for millennia, and no wonder. They are a great way to extend the life of produce; their zippy taste is awesome; and they are packed with pro-biotic goodness. For anyone who likes sauerkraut, kimchi, or pickled vegetables of any kind, our Fifth Season Fermentation kits make a great gift. Pair it with one of our books on fermenting foods for a complete package!
Growing mushrooms is really cool, and not nearly as complicated as you might think. We’ve got a number of ways to give the gift of fungi this year, including kits for plugging your own mushroom logs; counter-top mushroom cultivation kits; and packs of plug spawn and sawdust spawn. Some stores also have pre-plugged mushroom logs available, so check with your local store.
If you’re just not sure what to get the D-I-Y aficionados on your list, you can always let them choose their own perfect gifts by giving Fifth Season Gift Cards!
*Some items listed may not be available at all Fifth Season Gardening locations. Check with your local store for availability. We are always happy to transfer items between stores, if your store does not stock an item you are interested in!
