Alex (the chilli farmer) and his wife Louise (sauce maker and market-stall extraordinaire) started the chilli farm in 2008 with just one poly tunnel. Initially it was a hobby business but rapidly grew into a full time enterprise that has seen them increase their poly tunnels from the original one to five!

Three of the tunnels are dedicated to growing chillies for their range of chilli sauces, jams, chutneys and organic Hot Pig chilli sausages and hams.

The fourth tunnel is a show tunnel that has been stocked and designed by Matt Simpson of Simpson Seeds. It exhibits over 100 different types of chilli plants and in the year 2011 is encouraging visitors to shout abuse at one of the 7 pots in an fun attempt to stress it enough to produce the new worlds hottest chilli!

The fifth tunnel is sponsored by Bristol’s very own spice giant –  Bart Spices. In this tunnel, Alex grows a variety of chillies on behalf of Bart Spices.

The general public are encouraged to visit the farm, where they can view not only the chillies growing but also a variety of traditional farm yard animals including cows, pigs, goats and geese. There is also a small picnic area with far reaching views over the Welsh mountains and a delightful farm shop with its own cafe and organic stocks.

Their products can be found at many of the farmers markets in the Bristol and Bath area as well as at numerous food and chilli shows across the country over the course of each year. They also host a very popular chilli festival on the second Saturday of every September, which see’s a chilli eating contest, chilli talks, tasting sessions, live music and kids entertainment.
