we're in our element at the market, but

We are Ryan and Chrissi Scherer, a husband & wife duo, who share a love for the Earth and all things spicy!

At Zen, we put our passion into practice, growing every pepper that's used in our products.. From seed to sauce, right here in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains.

We use only eco-friendly practices to grow our peppers. From low-waste seed starting practices, to drip irrigation, and no-spray weed management. Though we aren't yet certified, we are proudly organic by practice.

We are excited to share the love with you, by way of hot sauce.
