The story behind Firefly Kitchens and co-founders Richard Climenhage & Julie O'Brien. 


"If there’s anyone who can persuade me to add kraut juice to my smoothie, stir sauerkraut into my peanut butter, or kick start my morning eggs with kimchi (that last one takes no persuasion), it’ll be Richard and Julie who cheerfully spread the gospel of probiotic, lactic-fermented, and locally sourced from their Firefly Kitchens kraut factory in hipster Ballard."
—Tom Douglas, chef/restaurateur
