The origins of Ralph Sechler & Son, Inc. date back 85 years to 1914, just before the First World War. Ralph Sechler actually got his start in the pickle business running a pickle station in St. Joe, Indiana for the D. M. Sears Company. He'd deliver "brine stock" (freshly picked cucumbers in salt brine) by horse-drawn wagon to a railroad siding in nearby St. Joe, Indiana, where it would be transported by rail to Sears, 20 miles away in Ft. Wayne.After a respite from the business in college and the Army, Ralph went back to work for Sears in 1919. Two years later he leased two of their pickle stations, getting his start as an entrepreneur.
We really enjoy giving tours. Come on over!
Grew up in the area & loved these pickles! Took the tour several times in school. Highly recommend it!
