Union County’s annual “Pepperfest” will be held on September 3rd from 11AM -5PM at Rancho Bella Vista, 827 Vines Rd Cobden Illinois. Pepperfest has quickly become a favorite gathering for chile heads and hot pepper fans throughout the Midwest, with some people coming from as far as Washington DC and Seattle Washington.

    • Live music featuring Carter and Connelley as well as Wil Maring
    • “Fields of Fire” walking tour
    • Salsa Limbo “How Hot can you Go”
    • Save 10% on all purchases at our Farm Store
    • $5.00 admission covers parking and pepper tasting

Family, Food and Fun

The festival will have all the Jiménez clan working from sun-up to sun-down, picking peppers, making fresh salsa and homemade jams jellies and processed chile pepper products, stringing up ristras, giving cooking classes, walking tours of the pepper fields to show folks the many varieties of hot peppers in bloom.

Meeting all our friends and customers and sharing good food, music and smiles is what makes Pepperfest so great and why this year we expect nearly 500 people to attend the festival.

    We have a few unused acres, and very giving neighbors. 🙂

    Guajillo is a great chile to mix with fresh fruit, blackberries is prob the best choice, good on crepes!
