Maker Story: Small Axe Peppers is a community and mission forward company that makes delicious hot sauces from working with community growers across 15 cities in America.
In 2014 they started out as the Bronx Hot Sauce donating and distributing pepper seeds to community gardens and then would buy those peppers at a premium and make a delicious hot sauce to sell and reinvest the proceeds to support community gardens. They have expanded their hot sauce line and their impact. Learn all about the program and story by listening to the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast.
