South Deveon Chilli Farm

Growing over 10,000 chilli plants the South Devon Chilli Farm has grown a lot since it opened early in 2003.

Run by Jason Nickels and Steve Waters with up to 5 staff at busy times. The farm is spread between two locations and is situated approximately halfway between Torquay and Plymouth.

The main site is near the village of Loddiswell and is approx 10 acres with a small shop that they open all year round, 7 days a week, between 10am-4pm. There is also a show poly tunnel in which they display examples of the varieties they grow. The second site is in South Milton and consists of 4 poly tunnels

With 2,500 square meters of chilli plants, they harvested over a million chillies last year alone.

The Shop

The Shop

Their online shop sells Fresh Chiles during the season (July – November), Smoke and Dried chillies, Chilli Powders, Chilli Chocolate Preserves, Sauces and even a range of seeds.

Their latest range of products includes a Extreme Bhut Jolokia Sauce, Mash and Jam.

They have a wholesale online shop of their stockists, who while mainly in the south west can also be found as far away as Derbyshire and Cumbria, a complete list can be found on their web site. They have even got some of their products for sale on Amazon

A number of foodie celebrity including Jamie Oliver and Tom Parker-Bowles (We like Tom as he referenced my book a number of times) are amongst their fans.

They seem like a very forward thinking business whose growth is base on good service and products, we hope during the summer to visit them and bring back some pictures for you to see.
