Where have the pickles gone?

I am extremely distressed, after learning that the pickles I grew up with, the Nalley brand, are no longer being grown locally, but now being grown in India.

This article in the Seattle PI sparked my interest:

Northwest brands reject pickles from local northwest growers

all in the name of cheaper labor, our pickles are now even being outsourced. This year I bought extra cucumber seeds, so I will be making my own local pickles from now on, thank you! More good reason to move to the 100 mile diet!

Comments anyone?
