Real Pickles is located in Greenfield, MA.
Real Pickles uses certified organic vegetables grown in Massachusetts and Vermont to make, yes, "real" pickles. They are one of a handful of businesses in the United States producing raw, lactic acid fermented (or naturally fermented) pickles. This traditional pickling process went out of favor with the advent of industrial food production. Modern pickling methods, including use of vinegar (usually in place of fermentation) and pasteurization, produce a uniform, shelf stable product suitable to the needs of the large food corporations. Modern pickles just don't offer the authentic flavor or health-promoting qualities of traditional pickles.
