Founded in Crested Butte, Colorado in 2011, Yee-Haw Pickle Co. was built on the belief that good food doesn’t need to be loaded with artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. With fresh ingredients and authentic flavors, we strive to make pickles that stand the test of time.
After Allison was diagnosed with food allergies in 2010, nutrition labels took on a whole new meaning. Store bought pickles were some of the worst offenders, loaded with yellow 5, sodium benzoate, and calcium chloride. But rather than give up on pickles entirely, we started making our own, packing them full of fresh Habaneros and whole spices in our home kitchen at 9,300 ft.
During the summer of 2011, we moved to Park City, Utah to launch Yee- Haw Pickle Co., where we sold our first jar of Hot Damn Dills at the local farmer’s market. We were surprised by how many people had never tasted an all-natural pickle. After building a loyal following at farmer’s markets, we convinced local retailers to stock our products where we sampled our pickles weekly, adding new flavors based on customer requests.
Over the past seven years, we’ve grown manufacturing and distribution and have moved operations back to Crested Butte, but our original recipes have stayed the same. Our most popular flavors, the Hot Damn Dills and No Frills Dills were created during our first year at the markets and these same flavors are available today at select retailers nationwide.
