McClure's Pickles, which now has national distribution in Whole Foods and Williams Sonoma, has a cult following. No wonder. You can actually feel virtuous eating these pickles. Joe, his mother, Jenny, father, Mike, and a couple employees, hand cut and brine up to 800 jars of pickles each day. They use as much local produce as possible, and the jars' labels are printed using vegetable inks by a press powered by hydroelectric and wind power. In other words, they’re, um, green.
