Lauren Rhoades, founder and owner, has been an avid fermenter since just after graduating college, when she took a class on how to brew kombucha. She soon became fascinated with the seemingly magical power of  bacteria to transform simple ingredients into delicious, unique and nutrient-dense foods.

In 2013 Lauren moved to Jackson to serve with FoodCorps, where she built relationships within the sustainable ag community, started school garden programs, and taught lessons on healthy eating and the food system to students.


Sweet & Sauer products are always living, never heat treated.  Our goal is to strengthen Mississippi’s local food system through fermentation, using the highest quality, sustainably sourced ingredients.
