If you’re a fermented food fan, you’ll want to attend the inaugural 123 Farm Cultured Food Festival this weekend at the Highland Springs Ranch & Inn, 10600 Highland Springs Ave., Cherry Valley.

The event will feature workshops where participants can learn about the health benefits of fermented foods and how to make different foods, including kimchi, fermented vegetables, sourdough bread, kefir and yogurt.

There also will be an afternoon tea and variety of food for sale, including sausages, tacos, rice bowls and desserts.

Of course, beer will be pouring from several local breweries, including Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, Garage Brewing Co., Euryale Brewing Company and Black Market Brewing Co.
