Sunshine Farms is owned by John Jaques who started growing asparagus in 1982. His wife Claudia canned and pickled the produce, which was initially just for their own consumption. However, they gave some of their pickled asparagus to friends as gifts. When their friends kept asking for more, John and his family knew they had something worth selling.
With the help of their three sons Josh, Ben, and Adrian, John and Claudia now offer 26 different pickles half of which are certified organic. Sunshine Farms does not use preservatives or additives in their pickled vegetables, which are processed right away, straight from the fields.
