Fraktured's hot sauce journey was a long time in the making. The Gevard family had held a dream of producing hot sauce commercially for a long time, but the stars finally aligned when the family bought an old German farmhouse that came with a sizable acreage that would be perfect for pepper production. To hone his harvesting skills, Pa Gevard took seasonal jobs with local produce farms. In addition to gaining knowledge in farming, he also met Fiona Palumbo at one of these farms, who eventually became his hot sauce business partner.
After trialing several different production methods, Pa and Fiona settled on a long-aged mash style of hot sauce, as they found that this method produced hot sauces with tremendous flavor.
