My Name is Myron Lapine . I have live in Gloucester mas my 57 years of life born and raised here. I had all way’s worked on the Gloucester water front on the docks, and boats as a Lobster men and fishermen. Well one day I met a friend who let me try some really good home made pickles this was in 2000. Then I bought my first canning book and canning kit and started out with Bread & Butter chips my friends and I loved them. I had a friend Paul who talked me into the Topsfield fair canning competition. My first year 3rd place and 4th place . The very next year we won on our bread & butter pickles Blue Ribbon and we as so had a Blue Ribbon Blue Berries in a simple syrup Which bye the time we stop showing there was a ten year in a row Blue Ribbon winner . We a few years later I became ill will hip problems lack of blood getting two my hip heads and they were dying and need two be replaced. God know what 2012 doctor say you need two retire and cant due what you were doing so lost it was killing me. Well shortly after have my first hip replaced they say is lose and needs two be replaced not so sure if I can do it ever. in 2014 I started working with Mass rehabilitation commission two start a small Business after at lot of work and quitting a few times I made it through got approved and now running a farmers Market stand called Ma & Pa’s Pickles Etc. I have been asked a few time why Ma & Pa’s well for me my dad would all make home root beer for us kids and mom is and all way's a great cook so thought well some thing like my ma & Pa would make for you or your grand parents hopping two strike a memory.
