“"we could make them faster, but that wouldn't make them better"”

A group tour of our plant can be scheduled from April - October.  We currently offer tours Monday - Thursday starting at 9am and running every 30 minutes until 11am; start back up after lunch at 12:30 run every 30 minutes until 3pm. Fridays we have limited production, please call ahead to see if we are offering tours.  If you would like to bring a group (6 or more) please call a week prior for a reservation.  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.
