Hey, we’re Krissy and Gideon!
Boonville Barn Collective is a woman-owned farm that’s been producing unique chile powders since 2012 in the resource-rich Anderson Valley in Northern California, including our signature Piment d’Ville. This whole thing started when 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 here 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, we started growing what we call Piment d’Ville, our California version of Piment d’Espelette.
Boonville Barn Collective is proud to bring the magic and versatility of these fresh, beautiful spices to home cooks and chefs across the country.
The farm was founded in order to satisfy a hole in the market for restaurant chefs, but what we really want is for folks at home to use farm-to-jar chile powders in their own cooking! Our chile powders are versatile and go-to flavors that can be used in a variety of foods.
