Our Story

Hi it’s Ivy and Adrian. We’re the gut flora warriors at the Good Seed. Through our personal health journey, we have learnt that our microbiome and gut health is the key to the quality of life. 70% of our immune system is dependent on the gut! You can consume the best foods in the world, but if your gut isn’t working none of that matters. During our research, we found that one of the beneficial ways to look after our gut is through probiotics such as water kefir
Our mission is to help busy Australians reconnect with fermented foods that have nourished the human race through generations.
The close connection between nutrition and gut health became increasingly clearer when we started brewing kefir at home. Through regular consumption, Ivy noticed her psoriasis improving. Adrian’s cyst no longer hurt and became less prominent, and it was a big relief that his hemorrhoids had also stopped. They shared our home-brewed kefir with family and friends and received plenty of positive feedback. As the warmer months loomed, the demand for broth at the farmers market lessened. And so The Good Seed kefir became our natural progression.
We began our business by hand delivering door-to-door in our tiny Honda Jazz. Customers would meet us on a street comer after their gym session, leave empty bottles on the home porch to be replenished, or even give instructions to load up the garage fridge via the back door. Our production grew and they soon moved to a shared kitchen facility at a cafe.
Between trying to keep the spare refrigerators full and supplying the farmers markets, there was no keeping up with demand.
We then moved our small operation to the Mornington Peninsula where we found a perfect space to keep developing and growing our dream of brewing kefir for the masses. We’ve since relocated to Melbourne to keep brewing from our even bigger Perfect Space 2.0. Although we no longer do personal door-to-door deliveries, you can still pick up your weekly dose of kefir from us at the farmers Markets they attend, or from stores throughout Victoria at your convenience.
We are so grateful to have chanced upon this dream of creating a brand that inspires positive living and advocates for proper nutrition and great gut health. Thank goodness it’s never too late to change! Our life experiences have led us to where they are today and we credit our renewed health to the good colonies of micro-organisms in our guts, predominantly thanks to water kefir. And it’s for this reason, we are now on a mission to help others learn about the power of proper nutrition in order to restore balance to their health and lives.
We are all trying to achieve so much every single day, and sooner or later something has got to give. Through our delicious creations, we hope to make a positive difference to the community, empowering you and your family to live happier, healthier lives. Deep down your mind and body instinctively know what is right, trust your gut!

Our Vision

We hope to steward the community away from traditional soft drinks towards healthier alternatives that renew and restore well-being, and taste downright delicious in the process!

That’s why we’re 100% committed to developing and sharing food and beverages that will make a positive difference to the health of the community… just as these have for us.

Our mission

Our mission is to help busy Australians reconnect with natural ferments by bringing these ancient nourishing foods from the fringe to the fore. We ferment so you don’t have to!

OUR VALUES

Discovering the ancient wisdom of water kefir was a moment that transformed our lives. So we invest the same energy and passion into developing our products for the community as we do for ourselves at home.

The Good Seed is steadfast against adding preservatives, emulsifiers or anything artificial to our products. We take pride in only using high-quality local organic ingredients, which we then ferment naturally. We choose to make water kefir rather than milk kefir, so we can ensure our products are raw, organic, dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan-friendly.
