Pacific Pickle Works Hoping for Tasty Fundraiser Finish

'Kickstarter' campaign ends Saturday


The Pacific Pickle Works company is hoping a Kickstarter campaign will help generate funding to expand production and pay for a new kitchen that other start-up food makers can use.

Bradley Bennett says he began pickling for family and friends, but soon found there was room in the marketplace for his creations which are far beyond what you would normally think of when it's time to reach for the pickles.

"For us, pickles extends to pickled vegetables,  so we do pickled asparagus, green beans, beets, carrots, okra, cauliflower and specialty items," said Bennett. "Mostly  the thing the people like about our products is taste and texture.  Not only is it savory good,  it has a very natural crunch. We preserve the best quality vegetables by jarring them within 24 hours of being harvested."

The company's newest item is a Bloody Many Elixir featuring their homemade all natural Worcestershire sauce.

In the future planning, however, Pacific Pickle Works needs a new kitchen to produce, store and ship its product.  Like many small food companies, they are leasing space.

Bennett hopes the kitchen can also be used by other food makers who are producing specialty items.

The Kickstarter funding campaign underway encourages supporters to contribute money, and along the way they will be able to receive special shipments from Pacific Pickle works that include their food and promotional items.

    Orcutt Family Starts Petition to Change County Ordinance

    An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.

    Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.

    "They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."

    But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.

    "Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
