Tell us about your business.

We started Gordy's because we love pickles, and we love creating something that captures our regions bounty with every bite. We want people to experience the flavor complexity you only get from a hand-crafted product, so each step of Gordy's pickling and preserving process is done by hand, on a small scale to ensure you get the best product possible in every jar. The idea of being a part of a generation that is rediscovering an old craft is incredibly exciting, and there are still so many techniques, flavors and product varieties to explore. The taste of our customers are constantly evolving, and Gordy's is constantly merging both old and new methods to evolve along with them. Our goal is to provide our customers the most delicious and innovative pickled products in every jar of Gordy's.
