Our Mission

We want our hot sauce to connect you directly to community gardens and urban farms in your neighborhood.

Community Gardens are amazing resources in urban areas that are too often under-served. Each garden has a unique social mission, informed by the needs of the surrounding areas. From high school students, to immigrants and refugees, to people who simply want to enjoy a shady cool green space in the middle of the city, community gardens are places where people from all backgrounds and walks of life can come together.

Previously, these gardens depended on unreliable grants, donations, and out-of-pocket expenses to maintain their community gardens. Now, they are able to devote a portion of their garden to growing peppers as a cash crop, which allows them to fund their vital social programming.

Small Axe Peppers connects you directly to urban farms and community gardens in your neighborhood. You support these community gardens and urban farms each time you purchase this delicious hot sauce.


Where We Grow

Small Axe Peppers works with more than 75 community gardens in 15 cities across America.

We source our peppers from gardens at premium prices so gardens can earn income to support themselves and the maintenance of their gardens.
