The reason we are here: to celebrate and thank our local farmers!
PepperFest started years ago as a taste test for Piedmont Biofarm ‘s new pepper varieties that farmer Doug Jones was developing to be well adapted for the N.C. climate. Since then, it’s grown quite a bit, and many more farmers have gotten involved, growing Doug’s pepper varieties as well as others that do well in N.C.
We are partnering with small NC farms to purchase their peppers for the Chef’s pepper dishes. Thank you to these sustainable farms and farmers for their work in strengthening our local foodshed and providing peppers for PepperFest!

Granite Springs Farm

Kindred Seedlings Farm
Kindred Seedlings started as an act of anti-racism. Given that there are not many Black, woman farmers in Alamance County, LaShauna Austria was inspired to do something. Her business began as a seedling business in the dining room of her home. This led to a partnership with the Elon University Love Business School, which helped LaShauna to really think about how Kindred could be beneficial to Alamance and surrounding areas. Eventually, culinary herbs were added to the list of products sold. All of this was done with a quarter-acre piece of property in a suburban back yard- it doesn’t take a lot of land to be able to grow something!
