The reason we are here: to celebrate and thank our local farmers!
Pepperfest started as a taste test for new pepper varieties Farmer Doug Jones was developing. Since then, many more farmers have gotten involved, growing pepper varieties that do well in N.C.
We partner with small NC farms – purchasing their peppers for Pepperfest’s Chef’s and Brewer’s pepper dishes and beverages. Gratitude to our past sustainable farms and farmers for their work in strengthening our local foodshed and providing peppers for Pepper Festival!
