Hitting the Sauce: How we Started our Organic Farm-to-Bottle Hot Sauce Company
In 2012, her first book Homesweet Homegrown, illustrated by her friend Jennifer Biggs, was published on Microcosm Press and the two trekked around the country via Amtrak for an epic cross country book tour. Before they left, Robyn planted way too many habaneros, ghost pepper and lemon drop chili peppers in the Grow Indie test garden, and we came back to hundreds of pounds of peppers, all begging to be made into hot sauce. She and her husband Paul happily obliged and started hitting the sauce.
They created three unique flavors of hot sauce featuring homegrown organic hot peppers and superfood ingredients like chia seeds and raw cacao, taking it a notches above the typical cayenne, Sriracha, Cholula, Tabasco, and Frank's for healthy, organic mix of flavor and heat featuring the real kick of habanero and ghost peppers (aka, bhut jalokia). Each bottle is free of additives, colors, gmos pesticides and preservatives and all farmed organically by us in Kutztown, PA.
For the past 9 years, we have grown some of the rarest peppers in the world, selling them to chefs, hot sauce makers, customers (and the occasional celebrity;) at our farm stand in Union Square in New York City and Brooklyn.
