About Us

Based a short distance from Melksham, near Bath in the South West of England, The Wiltshire Chilli Farm consists of a group of culinary and horticulture enthusiasts who share a love of all things spicy.

Our chillies put the fire in our bellies that drives us to do what we love best – and that’s sauces and seasonings that encourage people to discover new sensations and find new ways of enjoying what they eat. We bring spice to life and add depth and warmth to food, catering to every palate and taking great pleasure introducing people to the wonderful world of chillies. We believe in celebrating the unique flavours of all chilli peppers. With thousands of varieties out there, there’s so much potential for discovering great taste combinations and levels of heat. We think it’s bonkers that people limit themselves to just one or two varieties.

Instead, we blend many together with other complimentary ingredients for recipes that put taste first every time. Heat is just an added bonus! That’s not to say we don’t go to extremes when required – our hottest sauces showcase the chilli with very few other ingredients. But what really gets us going is finding new ways to bring delicious new tastes to the table by being fearless with flavour. That’s been our mission from day one and it always will be.

Even without the often intensive cooking schedules we put ourselves through, the growing of chillies is a seven days a week task, particularly in the early stages of the year. This year we have moved from growing a few thousand seedlings in a pair of propagation tents to a purpose built unit housing tens of thousands of plants. But all work and no play wouldn’t be much fun would it? We’ve also spent our time travelling the globe in search of fresh new flavours and experiences to inspire our products and keep the flavours truly fearless. When creating new sauces we don’t believe in simply plucking ideas out of the air. Our preferred method is to eat the raw chilli and decide what other taste sensations will marry with what we experience. Truly Fearless Flavours!
