Pickles have been made on Nagog Hill, in Acton, Massachusetts for nearly four centuries. Though there is archaeological evidence of part-time habitation by Native Americans dating back 7,000 years, the first permanent residents of Acton settled the area in 1639, siting their homes in the meadows on the Nashoba Brook flood plain.
The settlers preserved food to last them through the long, harsh winters, and commonly used brine to preserve beans and other vegetables. Martha Washington wrote one of the first American cookbooks in the mid-18th century, while George was off fighting in the French and Indian Wars, and it included a recipe for pickled kidney beans, almost certainly based on practices passed down from earlier generations. Acton became a manufacturing center in the Industrial Revolution, with gunpowder mills, a pencil factory, a woolen mill, a piano stool factory, a cigar factory, and one of North America's first pickle plants. The original Nagog Pickle Works, near
the current site of the Nagog Office Park, burned down in 1926 in a conflagration so intense that it gave rise to speculation that the company's products included booze as well as preserved vegetables. We are proud to have revived Acton's proud pickle-making heritage with the inaugural batch of Chip's Infamous Spicy Garlic Dill PicklesĀ®
