Originally launched by Jeff Solinger in the mid 2000’s Buck’s grew into a strong regional brand with distribution primarily on the West Coast in the Natural and Independent Grocery Channels. The business was shut down in 2014 due to a personal family issue.
However, store owners and consumers continued to clamor for more Buck’s Vineyard pickles, so now Buck’s is back!
Using a family recipe that is over 170 years old, Buck’s Vineyard has created a pickle unlike any on the market. This unique half-sour pickle is fresh packed in brine and seasonings and ready for your enjoyment. So, enjoy!
our family heritage
In 1931, Tata (Dmytro) and Nana (Katherine) Solinger emigrated to the United States from the Ukraine, bringing with them their family recipes, including their favorite – the old family pickle recipe. This more than 170 year old, 7th generation, half-sour pickle recipe remains the cornerstone for the entire line of pickles from Buck’s Vineyard.
All the pickles at Buck’s Vineyards are hand packed fresh using a unique packing process. Every jar of pickles contains small, niblet pickles, pickle halves and pickle quarters — something for everyone – all packed into a quart jar. Fresh spices are then placed on the top of the pickles and the brine is added. This process makes our pickles unique, fresh-tasting, crunchy and, when you ask our customers, addictive.
The brine used to make Buck’s Vineyard Pickles is a secret family recipe. There’s one more secret with this brine – when you run out of pickles, the brine can be used as marinade for your favorite cuts of chicken, pork, beef or even vegetables for a delicious meal every time!
