Locally made, regionally sourced

I am making the products locally, and I am sourcing peppers regionally, when available. Facepunch Foods will source from local farms, farmer's markets, and retailers when available. I will also utilize the peppers from south of the border, when the time of year warrants it!

Just the FAQs

Q: Where do you make the sauces and rubs?

A: I have a couple clean kitchens that I lease space from in the St. Paul area. Thanks to great friendships and supportive people, I have spaces to use to make amazing sauces.

Q: What kind of peppers do you use?

A:  I use fresh jalapenos, hot banana peppers, and Bird's eye chili peppers sourced from Minnesota farms, when available. I also utilize southwest and south of the border peppers during these tough winters in MN.

Q:  Can I drink the sauce directly out of the bottle?

A:  Yes, but please do so safely and have some milk available. Or maybe some tacos!
