Maker Story: Kitchen Garden Farm is a 50-acre organic specialty vegetable farm located in Sunderland, Massachusetts. Tim Wilcox and Caroline Pam started the farm in 2006 after meeting at the Union Square Greenmarket in New York City in 2003, where they both worked as market managers. Inspired by the quality and variety of produce on offer in New York City, and by their time working on farms in Italy, they have built one of the top organic produce farms supplying farmers markets, restaurants and stores in western Massachusetts.
Since 2012, The Kitchen Garden has hosted an annual farm festival, Chilifest, as a showcase for the more than 30 different types of chilies grown on the farm, and as a community event around spicy food, local beer and live music. In 2013 Tim began making sriracha sauce to sell at the festival on a small scale, based on 100 lbs of chilies per batch. The sauce was wildly successful. The following year the farm got the necessary licenses to sell the sauce wholesale, producing about 400 cases of sauce in 2014, which sold out in 6 months.
