Supporting Local - Peppers

Apr 25, 2024

Sugar Bob's Finest Kind is not just a shopping destination; it's a commitment to supporting local businesses and fostering community ties. At the heart of our ethos is the belief in the value of local produce and the positive impact it has on both the economy and the environment. We take pride in sourcing our ingredients from local farms, ensuring freshness and quality that not only benefits our customers but also contributes to the sustainability of the community.

When you shop at Sugar Bob's Finest Kind, you're not just purchasing products; you're investing in the growth and prosperity of local farmers and businesses. Our dedication to supporting locals extends beyond mere transactions – it's a conscious choice to build a vibrant and interconnected community.

Some of the local farms that we source our peppers from include, Otter Point Farm, Quill Hill Farm, Honey Field Farm, Familia Farm and Clear Brook Farm. By sourcing peppers and other ingredients locally, we not only ensure a superior taste but also reduce our carbon footprint. It's a small step towards creating a more sustainable and resilient community. In 2023 we received 19,352 pounds of peppers from five different farms!

These farms are dedicated to sustainable and high-quality pepper farming. Their focus is on cultivating peppers using environmentally friendly agricultural methods. They aim to contribute to a sustainable food system by offering peppers that are free from harmful chemicals and encourage a connection between consumers and local agriculture, fostering a sense of community and promoting a sustainable approach to farming.

Take a look at what we received in 2023:

Clear Brook Farm: 450lbs (Fresno)

Honey Field Farm: 1,295lbs (Fresno and Habanero Jalapeňos)

Otter Point Farm: 2,400lbs (Fresno, Habanero, Green and Red Jalapeños)
