We lost our jobs in the Spring of 2020 when the pandemic hit here in Colorado. For 5 years prior, we had been growing peppers for fun. We were deciding what to do to continue earning a living and staying busy without getting cabin fever. My husband had already been prepping the garden and I had been creating new recipes.
We knew if we wanted to do this, we needed to step it up. My husband greatly increased the garden size, I started the website, created the company (Marcum Farm Co.), got busier in the kitchen and here we are.
Pandemic Polly was a funny name we jokingly came up with and it stuck. Polly want a cracker? Became Polly want a pepper. What can I say, lockdowns make you silly...
Thank you to everyone that came out to the Farmer's Markets. We are enjoying seeing old and new friends. Many of you have been asking for a jam. Well, we are happy to announce that we have created a Spicy Peach Bourbon Jam. It will be available at the Ridgway market on Friday this week and at the Palisade market on Sunday.
We also have our new S'Mores kit. Great for the backyard fire pit or the campground campfire. You provide the sticks and the fire. This chocolate is a tad less spicy than our Chocolate Almond Bark and pairs well with the vanilla marshmallows. $20
