Real Pickles Wins Award

Real Pickles is the Western Massachusetts Small Sustainable Business of the Year. Real Pickles is a company that walks its talk and makes extraordinary contributions to its community and local economy. This worker-owned cooperative is committed to promoting human and ecological health by providing people with delicious, nourishing food and by working toward a regional and organic food system, all with the well-being of its employees, the community and our shared planet at heart.

As part of its commitment to support a regional, organic food system, Real Pickles purchases all of its vegetables and fresh herbs and spices from organic family farms in the Northeast.

It sources primarily from eight organic farms located within 40 miles of Real Pickles and benefits from the rich soils of the Connecticut River Valley. The farmers they work with have a wealth of experience in growing organically. The result is vegetables of the highest quality, full of flavor and nutrients.
