Did you know that Florida ranks third in the US for the production of cucumbers? We grow over 25,000 acres of cucumbers each year and bring in a million dollars to the state economy! With these delicious cucumbers, we get fresh pickles! Read on to check out our favorite local companies selling fresh Florida pickles!
James Dauenheimer, Abbie Dauenheimer, and Scott Michalski were out for lunch one day in Tampa and all decided that the pickles they had for lunch lacked flair. The lackluster pickles sparked a conversation between the three friends about what would make the perfect pickle. Within days, the three were experimenting with ingredients until they had created the perfect pickle recipe and The Chill Dill was born!
The Chill Dill pickles are locally made, hand-cut, hand-packed, and delicious! They inspect every cucumber before pickling in a small batch in order to ensure the best and freshest pickle! Favorite flavors include Totally Original “OG”, Gnarly Garlic, Seriously Spicy, and Freedom “OG” Chips! They also have other pickled veggies like Kickin’ Carrots, Blazin’ Beans, Awesome Asparagus, and Cool Cauli!
In order to enjoy The Chill Dill pickles, you need to be in the Tampa area! While they attend a few markets and events throughout the year, they are available at retail locations in Tampa year-round. Check out these locations here!
Twenty-five years ago, Erwin Hartman moved to Florida from Long Island to follow his dream of creating the best pickle in the world that reminded him of the ones from his local deli in Brooklyn. Erwin wanted to create a fresh, crunchy, flavorful pickle made from a freshly picked Florida cucumber. Once he picked the cucumber, he would quickly place it in brine, and then immediately serve it. Little did he know, Erwin was a “farm to table” producer before the term was even used!
Farm Fresh Pickles are fresh and full of flavor due to them being constantly refrigerated and never pasteurized. If you’re enjoying a Farm Fresh Pickle you can be sure that it’s fresh! Florida Farms send fresh-picked cucumbers that go through the brining process and are sent out for delivery 24-48 hours later!
You may also see Farm Fresh Pickles in the store under the label Rosoff or Schorr’s. Not only do they sell pickles, they now sell olives, sauerkraut, and mustard. You can find their products at Doris Italian Market & Bakery, Famous market, Penn Dutch Food Center, Western Beef, Winn-Dixie, and Target!
