Texas Pickle Company
We are Tom and Jessica Weldin, owners and operators of Texas Pickle Company, LLC, in Sugar Land, Texas. We are proud to announce our status as Finalists in the HEB Quest for Texas Best Competition! We use only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients without the use of preservatives, additives, or dyes. Our unique pickling process ensures a perfectly crunchy texture and flavor for a taste experience that is unmatched!
Together with our two children, we moved to Texas from California in 2013. We loved visiting farmers markets and were looking for the perfect pickles. We also tried to find them in store bought versions, but still with no success. We love to cook so it was obvious that we needed to learn how to make them ourselves. After reading a canning & pickling book (from Lowes!), we produced a jar of habanero dill pickles, left them out for friends and family to try, and the response was overwhelming! We only had to hear ‘best pickles I’ve ever had in my life’ a few times before realizing that maybe we had something special. We knew that starting a small business would be a fun family adventure and would teach our young children about farming, community, and bringing a product to market.
Very early on, we decided we wanted to work with and support our local farmers. Having been brought up with little exposure to the sources of the food we ate, it was very important for us to make sure our children fully understood where their food came from, and to understand the importance of the farmer in their daily lives. We’ve been selling at the Imperial Farmers markets since January of 2015 and the local response has been fantastic! Please stop by and say hi!
