Everything we make is packed by hand in old-fashioned mason jars just the way our grandmothers did. All of our products are HACCP based and lab tested for shelf life stability and safety. Most of our products have won multiple blue ribbons at both our very own Yavapai County Fair and at the Arizona State Fair, and we won the Best Pickles award from Best of the Best two years in a row.

Members of the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) team have been actively consulting with the Small Business Makeover Program (SBM) participants since the approval and distribution of CARES Act funds in late 2020. These funds were allocated to support businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and have been essential to the recovery of companies in our northern Arizona communities and across the country, specifically those in rural Arizona.
