Cherith Valley Gardens

 CHeRiTH VaLLeY gardens is a family-operated business, committed to creating the finest unique products using the best local produce. 

In 1986, Alan Werner was a principal in an independent oil company, which funded, drilled and operated gas and oil wells in West Texas.  After the stock market plunged in October 1987, the company collapsed and Alan felt a strong desire to “return to the land.”  He began gardening in order to produce vegetables to feed his family, all of whom participated in preparing the soil, planting, weeding, watering, harvesting and canning.

Gifts of the family’s canned goods, developed from generational recipes, were really well-received; the family was encouraged and in 1993, they officially produced the first CHeRiTH VaLLeY gardens product.

They’ve since won loads of foodie awards, especially for the two jars of deliciousness that we’re offering here on New York Mouth – Garlic Salsa and Pickled Garlic. They’re simple ingredients turned into something unique and wonderful. They offer a hot ‘n spicy line of pickled vegetables, salsas, hors d’oeuvre jellies, spirited fruits, grille and dipping sauces, and assorted condiments. The products are hand-packed with no artificial preservatives, colorings or flavorings.
