our roots

Poor Devil Pepper Co. is us! Laura Webster & Jared Schwartz.  We've been making fermented hot sauce since 2014. Our plan was to create the most flavorful hot sauce out there, free of additives and vinegar.  So we made a raw, fermented hot sauce that uses only fresh, organic vegetables, organic seasonings and Celtic sea salt. We apply the same fermentation process as kimchi or sauerkraut to the peppers. This means we have a fermenting period of at least 6-8 weeks.

Jared works on research and development for future sauces and Laura is out there talking fermentation and running the marketing. Our hot sauce is packed with flavor and uses ingredients from local, certified organic farms in the Hudson Valley that are focused on regenerative agriculture.  Poor Devil is located in Hudson, NY and produced at Farm Ferments.

We think the quality of your hot sauce should be as good as the quality of the food you eat.
