What is your product?:
Why did you start your own food/drink product?:
It started as a hobby that got a little out of hand. Growing Chilli plants has become a bit of an obsession. I believe that everyone has a favourite chilli and I want to help them find out which variety it is.
What is a typical day like for you?:
Depends on the time of year. Winter and spring its germinating seeds so I’m back and forth the grow room checking everything is ok. Spring is repotting onto next stage pots. Summer is about spending to much time in the poly tunnel picking fresh pods end of Autumn is about collecting seeds then it starts over again.
What has been your biggest challenge with regards to your business?:
Trying to persuade people that Chillies are so much more than just heat.
What aspect do you enjoy most about your business?
Every part but most of all sharing my knowledge with others and learning new things myself.
Is there anything you would do differently if you started over again?
Not a single thing.
Do you have any advice for people wanting to start their own food or drink buisiness?
If you have to start small then start small but most of all never ever give up.
What are your plans for the future?
More varieties,bigger polytunnel
