It's hard to find FRESH sourdough starter–not dried! Fresh starter is ready for use much quicker than its dry cousin.

And what a history this one has–it's descended from a starter that's been lovingly nurtured here in New England since the 1700s. Generations of bakers before you have made wonderful bread with a bit of this same bubbling brew.

Add in our handsome stoneware crock, the perfect size and material for fridge-storage, and you've got everything you need to start baking. 7½" tall, 1-quart capacity.

IMPORTANT

Sourdough starter is a living entity; it needs regular feeding. Thus we recommend no more than 10 days elapse between when the sourdough starter you purchase leaves our facility here in Vermont, and when you give it its first feeding. Keep this in mind when choosing a delivery method; if you need help making the smartest shipping choice, please contact our customer service team.

For best results, please feed your fresh sourdough starter within 24 hours of receiving it. Care and feeding directions are included with your order, and are also available in our Guide to Sourdough»
