Founded in 2014, Fire Tongue Farms a Bay Area-based company that specializes in growing and processing the highest quality chili peppers.
What we do:
Growing: Each year we grow over 20 varieties of chili peppers in multiple regions around the greater Bay Area. We specialize in pairing particular varieties of chili peppers with the correct microclimates to maximize flavor and fruit quality. Our peppers are always grown to full maturity and peak ripeness to maximize heat levels, sugar concentration, and color.
Processing: At the end of the season after harvesting mature peppers we process our peppers by dehydrating and smoking them. We pride ourselves on slow drying the peppers at stable temperatures. Our line of smoked peppers, including the most well known Chipotles, are smoked using pruned fruit tree wood from local organic orchards in our region. This allows us to distribute shelf stable products in the form of whole-dried peppers, flakes, and other small batch condiments that you can view in our shop.
