Why we love it

Introducing you to some hot stuff by Boonville Barn Collective, the only producer of Comapeño chiles in the U.S. With pepper ancestors hailing from the Veracruz Mountains in Mexico, this chile powder is carrying on the legacy of intensity with its hot heat and bright acidity. Scoville Heat Units (SHU): 50,000-100,000 (twice the heat of cayenne, on par with Thai chile pepper).

How it does good

Farm-to-jar spices that raise the bar

Have you looked into where your spices come from, how they were grown, or how old they might be? Boonville Barn Collective is a small farm in Boonville, CA producing hard-to-find chile powders with full transparency. Their spices don’t contain any additives like salt, oils, rice flour, or anti-caking agents. And they include the harvest date of their spices so you know how fresh they are. To ensure the best seed stock and traits for their chile peppers, they save seeds each year. From planting their chiles in their greenhouse and moving them into the soil, to harvesting chiles by hand and packaging them, everything comes full circle on their vertically integrated farm.

  • responsible sourcing

    As firm believers in quality ingredients, Boonville Barn Collective puts transparency first. Their chile powders don’t contain any additives and they grow and supply their own products.
  • low carbon footprint

    Boonville Barn Collective conducts farm practices that help sequester carbon in their soil. They recently received funding through the CA Dept of Food and Agriculture’s Healthy Soils Grant to plant a native hedgerow that simultaneously sequesters carbon and creates a pollinator habitat. And they compost and plant cover crops that manage soil erosion and quality.
  • supporting key causes

    Boonville Barn Collective donates their chile powders to local fundraisers for different events.
  • recyclable packaging

    Boonville Barn Collective's glass jars and metal lids are curbside recyclable.

How to use it

Use like chiltepin or hot cayenne in Mexican beef stew or salsa. Store in a cool place out of the sun and heat to retain maximum flavor and freshness.

When you're done...

The glass jar and metal lid, once separated, are 100% curbside recyclable.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

About the Brand

Boonville Barn Collective

Boonville Barn Collective

Boonville Barn Collective is a small farm producing hard-to-find chile powders in California.

It all started in 2012 when owner Krissy was a sous chef at The Boonville Hotel and used Piment d’Espelette on everything in the kitchen. It was expensive to import from France and in order to use more of it, growing it in Boonville seemed like a more accessible approach. Between acquiring pepper seeds, having land available to grow on, and an incredibly willing foreman interested in a challenge, the company started growing what they call Piment d’Ville, their California version of Piment d’Espelette.

What started as a way to produce a locally grown Basque chile powder evolved into a venture focused on building community and growing great spices that make food taste incredible.
