Our Story

Our Story

Darn Hot Peppers are grown at Rancho Bella Vista, a family farm committed to growing a wide variety of pesticide-free hot peppers.  Here in, Cobden Illinois, we like to take things slow. By taking our time and doing things the old fashioned way we’ve perfected the ultimate balance of heat and flavor in our products.  Read what our customers have to say!

What we do

In an average growing season we have anywhere from 15 – 20 varieties of hot peppers and 2-5 ornamentals growing at Rancho Bella Vista. Although we grow a host of different varieties, many are primarily held in reserve for making our value-added products.

We have been working hard to ready our new Coffee and Bakery Shop and Expanding our display of Darn Hot Peppers's Salsa, Pepper Jelly and Spices. Join us for a cup of coffee and sweet pastry and visit other shops in the New Downtown Cobden Business community.

  • Growing healthy, flavorful specialty hot peppers

  • Employing natural, sustainable farming methods
