Their sharp flavor coupled with their distinct crunch create a unique eating experience that adds color and texture to meals that lack flavor. On Jan. 15, the Good Food Awards committee awarded two local farms multiple recognitions in their pickled produce.
The Good Food Awards recognize the kind of food that brings people together and builds strong, healthy communities. The Good Food Awards finalists and winners are determined using scores from blind tasting, as well as a vetting process, which verifies that finalists and winners meet industry-specific environmental and social criteria. April McGreger, creator and owner of Farmer’s Daughter Brand, is a veteran Good Food Awards winner.
“We won our first award in 2011,” McGreger said. “We were really excited to win four awards this year, beating our record of two in one year.”
Growing up in Mississippi, McGreger recalls her mother and grandmother always preparing fermented foods and produce at home.
