Sunshine Pickles from Sunshine Farms in Thamesville, Ontario

We really like our customers.  Many have neat histories & interesting stories to tell.  Here’s one whose whole business started when one day someone pickled some spare asparagus…

Sunshine Pickles is a family owned and operated company located near Thamesville, ON.

Sunshine Pickles (www.picklesplease.ca) have been pickling vegetables for 20 years. It all started with pickled asparagus, and that remains their most popular product to this day. All of their products are grown and processed in Ontario – most of vegetables are grown by sister company Sunshine Farms (where the brand name comes from), and those vegetables that aren’t grown on their farm are bought from local farmers.  “Everything is packed at the peak of freshness right here on our farm,” says Adrian Jaques, owner & operator.  From pickled asparagus, Sunshine Pickles have gone on to experiment with pickling many different vegetables over the years and now produce 23 products, including pickled beets, beans, and carrots, along with dill pickles, relishes & jellies.

John and Claudia Jaques started the company on their farm, with the help of their three sons. They still run the farming side of the operation but now son Adrian runs the processing end, and, as Adrian points out, “I still call them for advice, from time to time!” To find out more about Sunshine Pickles, visit www.picklesplease.ca.
