Our Story

Since 2005, Hester has done more than refine an old tradition. Guided by an international palate, we fuse unique pickling techniques from around the world to create the most interesting flavors and textures.

Hester makes everything in small batches from our home base in New York. To achieve optimal flavor, our products age from three weeks to four months, making every pickle worth your patience.

Hester produces fresh, organic produce from local farmers in New York. Even our spices are fresh. Just because pickling is a preservation process doesn’t mean you can use dried-up thyme or week-old asparagus that’s already a little spongy.

We want to give our customers crisp, crunchy and delicious pickled vegetables and fruits. Most of all, we want to expand people’s palates and prove that pickles don’t always come in a green or red variety.
