About Us

It all began with our Grandmother’s recipes.  Her name was Carrie Compton Elder and she was born in 1886.  Her recipes have brought us to where we are today, using the traditional method of making pickles.  We take pride in using very simple ingredients, keeping our recipes free of high fructose corn syrup.   We use Virginia products as well as White House vinegar.  You can actually pronounce everything in our ingredients list and we plan on keeping that way!  We take pride in providing a product that surpasses the rest.

We have four generations of women working to carry on cherished family traditions.  Continuing to pass those traditions down is most important to us.
