Small Axe Peppers
Bronx Hot Sauce is made with serrano peppers grown in over 40 community gardens throughout the Bronx. We fund and support these gardens and growers by sourcing our serrano peppers at premium prices. We donate the pepper seedlings at the beginning of each growing season. We buy back the pepper yields from the gardens throughout the year. This unique buy-back model allows each garden to defray their maintenance cost and Bronx gardeners to earn additional income.
Bronx Hot Sauce is unique because it is currently the only commercial product in the United States produced from community gardens. We cook our small batch artisanal hot sauce, using only six all-natural ingredients to ensure fresh and delicious flavor.
