In April 2006 our founder Deborah tasted kefir for the first time. It was the beginning of a journey and adventure that changed her life and led to the start of Nourish Kefir.
Since 2009 we have been producing kefir made from fresh organic cow's milk and live kefir grains, right here in London! No we don't have our own cows, but we care about the milk we use, which is why we only use OMSCO Organic Soil Association certified whole cow's milk. What's unique about us is that we specialise in culturing and preparing the grains (with love and devotion) and then fermenting them in milk. Other commercially available kefirs are not made this way. The reasons why we do, relate to the previous scientific research - that all relates to kefir made from live grains. Not only that - but our grains are organic too - we grew them ourselves!
Making kefir is part art and part science as each batch is unique. At our dairy in South London we are busy fermenting and nurturing our living kefir grains to make the very best organic kefir drinks, not only in terms of taste, but also providing you with wonderful nourishment that feels like it’s doing you good.
The bacteria in kefir multiply during fermentation, and each bottle contains billions of these. There are many different strains and these grow as nature intended, not forced or manipulated, but freely and naturally. We just create the right conditions for this to happen. Our production is increasing year on year as more and more people are finding us and discovering the difference of kefir made from grains!
