We have a limited number of delivery slots per day since we do all of our deliveries - we do not use apps or 3rd party delivery services. 

Why don't you outsource your deliveries and increase capacity?

The 3rd party delivery services, and many large corporations, do not classify their delivery staff as employees. This is a tax, benefits and liability dodge that is not fair. We will not do this.

The "pickle crew" who make our pickles and ferments and pack and drive our home delivery orders are our coworkers. They are classified as employees, with the benefits and protections they deserve.

We are expanding. We're going to do it the right way.

How will I know what time my order will arrive?

On the day of your delivery, you will receive a few text messages:

  1. When your delivery has left the pickle factory. This message will have an ETA and a link to track your delivery. You will receive this text message by 10AM.
  2. When you're the next stop.
  3. When your order has been delivered.
If you won't be home - place a cooler with ice packs outside your door. We will leave your order in there. 

For apartment buildings: please denote at checkout if there's an access code to enter your building. We are doing contactless deliveries. Right now, our drivers do not deliver beyond first floor lobbies. Our hard-working drivers will leave your bag at the reception/front desk/lobby.
