“It’s such an honor to be included among this outstanding group of food producers around the country that meet extremely rigorous standards for quality and sustainability,” said Caroline Pam.
Kitchen Garden Farm Sriracha is a naturally fermented chili sauce that is certified organic and made exclusively with peppers grown on the farm in Sunderland. It is handcrafted by farmers Tim and Caroline at the Western Mass Food Processing Center in Greenfield, MA. Kitchen Garden Farm Sriracha comes in three varieties: original, extra-hot habanero, and super-hot ghost pepper. All three varieties are sold along with the farm’s line of salsas in select Whole Foods Markets, co-ops, and natural food stores around the Northeast, plus specialty stores in NYC, Boston, and the Berkshires. The farm’s products can also be ordered on the farm’s website, www.kitchengardenfarm.com.
Kitchen Garden Farm is a 50-acre, certified organic vegetable farm owned and operated by Tim Wilcox and Caroline Pam. They started the farm in 2006 on one acre and now grow on 50 acres of rich, river bottom soil in Sunderland and Whately. The farm supplies restaurants and stores throughout the Northeast with over 100 varieties of high quality, certified organic vegetables.
