Being resourceful: Kombucha

Daniel answered a request for someone to come take some glass bottles off someone’s hands a few days ago. 🙂 It’s always important when working on establishing a future business, to save money and resources. Glass is not easy to come by in New Zealand for example (when we relocate in less than a year in a half from now) and I imagine, glass bottles like such would be more expensive to buy locally as well. So all-in-all we shall be taking these glass-bottle-beauties along with us! 😀

Also, we have found recently a new juice we prefer to incorporate into our Kombucha batches: The juice we love is a blend of passionfruit, mango, apple, pineapple and grape. 🙂

Daniel and I plan to use our own freshly squeezed fruits from off the Butterfly Forests Homestead farm to “mingle” inside of every Kombucha brew for sale at the CSA. 😀 We also strive to have all of our products one hundred percent certified organic in time. ❤

This afternoon (02/19/17′) Daniel came up with the idea of selling the glass bottles of Kombucha for $5.00 each. You can get a $2.00 discount the next time you come to pick up another yummy bottles worth, when you return the used bottle. 🙂 The price might change then what is mentioned here, since I am using this as an example of our reuse, recycle method. 🙂



Kombucha. Sweet, delicious- kombucha. 😀 Daniel has been the mastermind behind introducing this marvelous homemade beverage to our home. We have a new skill obtained and are planning to sell our own kombucha beverages in the CSA cob store on the property. ❤

It’s relatively easy to make, once you get a SCOBY of our very-own. It’s more than likely going to be producing a new baby SCOBY after every new batch. 🙂

Q: What is a SCOBY?

A: “SCOBY” is actually an acronym: Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast. And that’s exactly what it is! A SCOBY is the living home for the bacteria and yeast that transform sweet tea into tangy, fizzy kombucha — think of the SCOBY as the coral reef of the bacteria and yeast world.”
