Mt. Olive Pickle Company
October 19, 2017 - 9:00 am
The Mt. Olive Pickle Company, Inc., located at the Corner of Cucumber & Vine in Mount Olive, North Carolina, was originally founded to brine cucumbers to be sold to other pickling firms. When that plan didn’t work, 37 local business people came together to establish the company for the purpose of packing and selling its own pickle products. From a modest beginning in 1926, with only a 3,600 square-foot building and $19,500 in capital, the Mt. Olive Pickle Company has grown to become the largest independent pickle company in the United States. The company packs over 100 million jars of processed and fresh pack pickles, relishes and peppers annually.
On this trip we will learn more information about this “dillicious” company. Then afterwards, we will have lunch just down the street at “Ribeyes Steakhouse”. You are sure to have a “dillightful” time on this trip.
