As interest in fermented foods has grown, so has Honest Weight's inventory of sauerkraut. Among the offerings in the store's cooler are Sauerkraut Seth's Original Raw, Jalapeño Firekraut, Red Apple Raw and Caraway Juniper Raw. Sauerkraut Seth's products are certified organic, and the vegetables are grown by certified organic farms in Columbia County and Ulster County.  The kraut is unpasteurized and lacto­-fermented. The only ingredients are vegetables, herbs, spices and unrefined sea salt. There is no added water!

Since 1998, the mission of Seth Travins (a.k.a. Sauerkraut Seth) has been to make the best tasting fermented vegetables of the highest quality. He created and developed Hawthorne Valley Farm's line of lacto-fermented vegetables and krauts from 1999 until 2012, and then he started his own business.

Seth's products can be found in many co-ops and retail food stores throughout New York and Massachusetts as well as in Flowerkraut, a shop in Hudson, NY, owned and operated by his wife Mairead Rhona Travins.
