You can carry pickles in check-in luggage. If the jar of pickle has been packed well and sealed tightly, you can carry it.

How is your pickle different from usual store pickles?
Ans.: Usually the factory made pickles have preservative in it, so their pickles don’t get spoilt and last them through the off season. Whereas at “The Little Farm” we do not use any preservatives in it and handcraft it traditionally and taste just like home.
What oil do you use in your garlic pickle and why?
Ans.: At “The Little Farm Co” we use Cold Pressed Mustard Oil. It has powerful antimicrobial, antibacterial and antifungal properties. This prevents the formation of any mould or bacterial growth in the pickles. It also forms a layer of protection between air and pickles from the bacteria present in the air. At “The Little Farm Co” we grow our own Mustard seeds and then further cold press it to get cold pressed Mustard oil. It is purely organic and lab tested. We do not infuse it with palm oil or any other oils. And this cold pressed Mustard oil is used in our pickles.
