    I have purchased my first jar of your pickles. I have been growing organic vegetables and canning for 25 years. I also brine and pickle my own cucumbers. I am very impressed with your product. I will be ordering a case for my kitchen and one for my son who farms in Oregon. Super product and impressive company. Keep up the good work. Love to see young entrepreneurs succeed.
