What Our Customers are Saying

You guys are always so helpful. Really great to have you here while navigating culturing! Sarah via Live Chat

Just wanted y'all to know how fantastically helpful your information is. Been working for a long time on kimchi and other cultures for a long time, and although successful, it has been difficult. Now with the new eBooks just downloaded, you've made it simple! The art and science combined, taking all the trial and error out, well, maybe not all, but you have made it so much easier! Thnx so very, very much! Y'all rock! Your website is totally awesome - I'm just so excited! Heading out to the kitchen right now! Dawn

Good Morning, I just wanted to congratulate you for your service. I got my order almost right away... I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family. Regards, Anton, TX

Just want to let you know how much I appreciate your informative site. I have earmarked it as a good place to start when I finally decide to FERMENT some veggies ! .... and the Kombucha info was great. You need to tell your webmaster that they are doing a great job......you know, webmasters are usually underappreciated. Dia 

I love your website.  Especially the videos.  They are very informative for a novice such as myself.  My son attended the Culinary Institute Cordon Bleu and he is enjoying your sourdough starters.  He lives in Taiwan now.  In fact, he recently ordered more items (that were sent to my home address) and I will be mailing priority mail to him tomorrow. Thanks again. Truly appreciate your quick response. Jan, Washington

I am now making Kefir at home and am happy I can make full fat, organic Kefir in any flavor we desire. I feel better drinking Kefir daily. The thickest, most flavorful Kefir I’ve made was with raw dairy milk (following the special instructions on CFH). I was timid about trying to culture Kefir again and mistakenly got confused while doing Filmjolk in the same month. Though both processed on the counter they require different feeding schedules. Online chat supported me awesomely along the way. I no longer need to purchase sour cream or buttermilk and am learning all about the health benefits and tasty ways to use whey. (A byproduct of straining either of these cultures.) Buying just two cultures and learning on this website have opened a new way to work in my kitchen and make good gut bacteria (probiotics) at home.

I love your store, your site, the starters I have purchased have been excellent, sourdough, cheese,yogurt. I really appreciate your free ebooks , you got me going on kombucha . I recommend you to everyone I meet that are interested in a healthier natural life style. Oh did I mention the chat response is prompt and helpful . Sincerely, Theresa, Kansas

You dudes have opened my mind to a whole new world of not having to break the bank for organic and healthy foods! You also make doing it easy, and safe! By far one of the raddest companies I know! Nick

After tasting, I never could get the awesome experience of Filmjolk off my mind. I ordered both, Kefir and Filmjolk starters and began making Filmjolk in 2015. Great choice as the flavor and ease make Filmjolk a great place to start. Not liking tart or sour, I much preferred the flavor of Filmjolk. There is no need to sweeten or add fruit to this yogurt (though I sometimes do so anyway). This has less good bacteria (2) than Kefir (has the most good bacteria, 20-30). Both cultures are mesophilic (able to culture without heat, on your kitchen counter) but Filmjolk only requires weekly attention whereas Kefir is daily. Every question one might incur can be found on this website. If you stumble, the web chat is here to direct you to the links you need, here on CFH, but may not find as readily as they can. CFH is a cream of the crop company, like a friend (with a PhD in culturing) that has an interest in your health and success.  PlatOr

I've placed my order and so excited to try brown rice sourdough!  The coupon worked fine.  Thank you so much for taking me through the process, I seemed to require a lot of your time and I do appreciate your responsiveness.  I'm glad I didn't just "fade away", and I learned a lesson... to reach out for customer support when things aren't going well with a product.  In the past many companies haven't been as responsive to inquiries or issues and I tend not to bother (or return to the company). Customer for life,  Shawna, TX

Just a quick note. I've just got my 3rd kefir culture started and it is by far the most vigorous. The second culture I kept going for over 9 months but it sort of petered out, finally shrinking down to a small thing. My wife calls my kefir my "kitchen pet." It definitely is a living thing. Anyway, I've been very satisfied and just wanted to say thanks. Leland, Missouri

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you! I started fermenting milk for kefir with your cultures. I used to do kombucha and we've had a sourdough starter going for many years. But your website, encouragement and products have brought my fermenting to a new level. I feel empowered, informed, and healthier making my own foods and learning about their history, formation, and benefits. It is so much fun making mistakes that become delicious kefir cream cheese! Now I over-ferment on purpose! And, I am saving a lot of money. Really though more importantly, I feel so empowered to understand my food and how it is made. I feel like the information you are providing on your site and the services couldn't have come at a better time. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you. Sometimes it's nice to know that you are making a difference in peoples lives - and it's easy to never communicate to people your appreciation! So here it is! Thanks again and keep up the good work! Charlotte, California

Your Website is very enjoyable. Really like it. Plus the fact that I have studied this stuff for a long time but haven't gotten to buy like this all in one place. Emir, Georgia

Thank you for being helpful when I've asked questions. I get the sense you are more than a business...that you really want people to learn about and get healthy with cultured food, I just wanted to say thanks. Susan, Wisconsin

Your gluten free Sourdough Whole Grain Boule recipe is fantastic.  I haven't enjoyed bread so much in years!  Thank you. Lisa, Mendocino, California

I just wanted to send an update on how the sourdough is going.  It has been great!  I've set it up in the oven and it is bubbling furiously!  I have already made sourdough pancakes and pizza crust, and I am baking my first loaf of bread right now.  Thank you for all your help and I can't wait to buy more cultures from you (I'm anxiously awaiting my kefir grains)! Victoria Kurtz, New Hope, PA 

My experience with Cultures for Health began with an online recommendation for their professionalism and quality of product.  I ordered a Camaldoli Culture during the holiday season and was surprised at how quick they shipped the product.  The starter was well packaged, and all the online videos were very resourceful making me happy with my choice to go with Cultures for Health.  I made the mistake of placing my culture on the Base Board heater instead of near it and the internal temps of the starter reached 107 degrees Fahrenheit after an hour.  I contacted cultures for health at 3.40, the morning of New Year's Eve, asking for guidance.  I had a personal response by 8am....I recommend Cultures for Health to anyone.  Christian, Spanaway, Washington

I just wanted to say thank you ALL for providing excellent support and teaching so many us of about cultured food and everything else. With your help, I now am making WONDERFUL vegan yogurt, cultured veggies and many other things. I hope you have even more success in 2015. Susan, Utah


Hello, I have found both your sites to be so informative and accurate. So many sites I've researched are simply trying to make a buck. I love your recipes. I cannot express enough how happy I am to have found you! Keep up the fantastic work. I was on the SCD for about 6 months and am on the first 30 days of AIP. All your recipes are adaptable for both. You have literally snapped me out of a slump from feeling that I can't eat anything. Now I'm making kefir, water and milk, yogurt, sour kraut and kombucha. Ginger beer is next. I feel great. Thank you so much. Michelle

Just wanted to share OUR success Jerri.  I did about 8 cups of milk with the grains and it was perfectly the best so far.  I am very excited now.  I have to admit I was bummed a little thinking this was as best it could be.  I was so wrong.   Thickness was totally there and tart sour was there and it was delicious.  I timed it exactly 24 hrs and checked it on the hr every other hour from 20 hrs til 24.  I felt like I was checking on new born puppies. Lol. So I wanted to share with you.   Im sold and I said OUR success because you were with me every step of the way reassuring me and encouraging me to keep going.  Because of you I didnt quit.  So thank you for everything.  Please forward this to a higher up or let me know how I can bless you and share what a wonderful job you did with me.  My belly and my heart thank you with everything in me.  You definitely poured into me heart and soul.  Much love and God bless you and your family and cultures for health.  Thank you tons and tons Jerri.  Sincerely, Rocky, TN
