Sustainability Highlights:

Farming Practices:
We use about 3 acres of our 20, to grow our cucumbers and pepper plants.

Processing Practices:
We use apple cider vinegar to pickle our products. Using old fashion hand canning with waterbath canners.

Ingredient Sourcing:
Organically grown company is where we get our other produce, like beets, carrots and beans. Our eggs are from Wilcox farms and are organic. Our garlic is from Christopher ranch and is organic. Our asparagus is considered one of the clean 15 vegetables and is not organic but is NON-GMO and grown in Washington.

Waste Reduction:
We started using 55 gallon drums of vinegar instead of single gallons due to no longer being able to recycle plastic. We have very little waste that is not recycleable.we have plenty of uses for the 55 gallon drums and also have them available for others to use.

Energy Use:
We use LED lighting in our kitchen, and propane cook tops.

Water Use:
The water we use is from our well that gets 30 gallons a minute. We water our garden with a drip system to use less water.

Labor:
I have 4 employees that are seasonal. We pick cucumbers in August and September and pickle them immediately after icing. We pickle other vegetables throughout the year..
