We love fermentation. Part art/part science, fermentation harnesses the power of nature to transform food and beverage into delightful provisions. It was this love, and a challenge to improve a local burger joint’s pickle, that drove us to establish Barrel Creek Provisions in 2013. Adam, hailing from a long line of pickle pioneering German-Americans, refined his family’s recipes with a touch of creativity, a douse of Tim’s engineering background and the right amount of Austin weird. The result: a probiotic powerhouses built on age-old pickling methods using fresh, all natural veggies.
Great News! Austin’s best pickle is now America’s best pickle! Barrel Creek Provisions is a WINNER in the Good Food Awards Pickles Category! It takes top quality ingredients and a superior process to get fermented foods that taste this good, and Barrel Creek Provisions is recognized again for making REALLY Good Food.
Barrel Creek Provisions is now Non-GMO Project Verified on a number of its products. This means they are now produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, including ongoing testing of all major high-risk ingredients. Barrel Creek Provisions is committed to providing consumers the highest quality food possible, and the Non-GMO Project Standard seal is another example of that commitment.
The Austin-based fermented vegetable maker announced last week that it has rebranded — its first major change since gaining new ownership in August. CEO Nick Benz, of start-up advisory Leaven Brands, said the brand now will be known as Barrel Creek Provisions and will sport a new look, but will continue to make its same lineup of probiotic-rich products.
