About Infamous

Infamous

For Tarun, growing chilies was just a hobby, an experiment. Then it just made sense to blend those peppers into a sauce to keep on hand in their family restaurant. But soon, customers were requesting the sauce by name and asking for bottles of it. Through the years, the pepper blend shifted and changed as different seeds from their travels around the world took root in their SoCal backyard.

The demand never waned, nor did their focus. Their goal has always been to create a hot sauce with the right mix of flavor and burn, one that complements rather than overpowers their food. They landed on a fiery, small batch sauce, still made from their homegrown chilies. What began as a batch of chilies grown in their backyard has become a hot sauce hoarded by those in the know.



About Secret Squirrel

Secret Squirrel

It all started with a few simple beans. Founders Trevor and Rebecca Smith have always cherished the experience of sharing a laugh over a great cup of coffee.

Cold brew describes the process we use to brew their premium coffee beverages. Instead of using heat to brew our coffee and tea, they use cool water and time - up to 22 hours.

About Beanfields

Beanfields

It all started in their founders’ family kitchen when they fired up the oven and baked some bean chips. It was an experiment that blew everyone’s taste buds clear out of their heads. Safe to say they are obsessed with seasoning, spending days and weeks and months focused on the complexity of seasoning, the nuance of notes, and the array of spices.

Beanfields care just as much about how their chips taste as they do about how the future tastes, and so do their bean farmers, who know that beans are one of the most sustainable crops to grow, requiring less water than other crops and improving the overall soil health. Corn and soy require an increase in fertilizer. Whereas these bean buddies are certified NON GMO.



About Country Archer

Country Archer

They loved the jerky so much they decided to track down the maker.
