Old Apple Hill is the culmination of several years of love and hard work resulting in the best artisan pickles possible!

Old Apple Hill Brine is a passion of our family, from mom to pop, sister to brother. The money we raise will go to allowing us to get enough cucumbers, carrots, and other veggies from local farmers, as well as all of the jars, etc, and to help us finish securing our pickle's "home," or the place we'll be preparing them!We're trying to take this old profession/hobby to new heights! We'll be launching a Memphis-based Pickle shop, as well as an online store, to get our pickles to anyone and EVERYONE! Really, your money is helping us, sure, but it's also helping local growers, as well as any other local service we'll be utilizing to launch our dream company! It will also allow us to help ship our pickles to various Mom&Pop stores throughout the beautiful USA!

We're a family of experimenters, and that's especially prevalent in our food; my wife is from Trinidad & Tobago, and with my Southern Cuisine along with her Island delicacies, needless to say, we throw in a little of this with a lot of that!

We have tons of things we're excited for you all to taste, but when we launch, you can expect the New York Deli Pickle, our Curry-Curry Pickle (Yes, it tastes like curry!) and our Whiskey Sour Pickle made with Whiskey distilled here in Tennessee!

We also have something special for you fans of Memphis BBQ. It's so tasty, it can't be real. (But it totally is.)

"Are you sure these are pickles? These things are amazing!"

"I literally crave these things...I'm going to need to more..."

"I guess I can't say 'I hate pickles,' anymore!"

Old Apple Hill was inspired by my family's farm from when I was a kid. We want to keep the beauty and simplicity that only Nature has forever. To help this, we have a simple jar-back program: When you finish your pickle, we'll not only take your jar, but we'll refill that bad boy, and knock off a couple of bucks in the process! You get a sweet discount for your pickled delight, and that's less waste to bog down our beautiful planet!

Pickling is super fun, I mean, we love it! However, wanting to give our pickle to everyone is a super daunting task, and it's a task we can't undertake alone. Your pledge means more to us than any and all of the gold and silver in the world! I appreciate it, my family appreciates it, and I know you'll love and appreciate our pickles! Nothing beats a fresh pickle and if your skeptical, I dare you to try ours!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

At the moment, we work 'round-the-clock in our family's kitchen, however, we have bigger plans. We want to secure a bigger kitchen to meet the demand we're anticipating (and already have with our soon-to-be partners!) and we simply don't have the room as it stands right now. This is particularly challenge, considering the fact that Brining is both time consuming and space consuming. With your support, we're going to overcome this hurdle and bring pickles to everyone!

Thank you so much for allowing us to present you with our love!

FAQ

  • Yes, because we met our stretch goal of 4K, you'll get not 3, but 4 jars of our pickles. The three you chose, as well as the new flavor! AND you'll receive a jar of sauerkraut as well! Wrap your head around that one!

  • Of course you can! And thank you for considering! Each dollar goes not only to our project, but to the local farming community, from whom we're getting all of our produce from! Thank you again!

    Last updated:
  • Of course you can! It'd be silly if you couldn't! Once our campaign completes, we will be sending out a survey to all of our backers, in regards to what flavors you want, where to ship, etc.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, unfortunately. Things are happening quicker than we could have anticipated. Don't you fret, however, as we are working as hard and as fast as you can! We're hoping to have our pickles in your kitchen before the estimated delivery date, but even if it's RIGHT on time, or even a little bit late, it'll be worth the wait! We promise!

  • Great question! Currently, all of our jars are 24oz, Pickles and Sauerkraut, included!

    Last updated:
  • Pickles (Cucumber): Whiskey-Sour, Curry-Curry, New York Deli, HoneyHot, Italian Balsamic-Rosemary ($20),the Tennessee Sorghum Pickle ($20), the Sea Salt & Vinegar Chips (slices) ($50).

    Non-Cucumber: Spicy Pickled Carrots ($20), Sauerkraut, Kimchee ($50) and Veggies Sans Cucumbers ($50)!

  • Great question! That means that you have to have pledged at least that amount in order for it to be an option to your order whether it's from your base pledge or your base pledge + any add-ons.

    For example, you can pledge at the $20 mark, or at the $5 mark, and add $15 for more jars of pickles (which equals $20). This means that you're eligible for any pickles in the $20 bracket!
