The Brooklyn Salsa Company was born in a Bushwick loft in the early summer of 2008, originally operating as an underground taco delivery service. Now we've taken our DIY roots to the jar, blending Small Batch salsa with CONSCIOUS METHODS, Direct Trade with Local Source, Organic Farmers. The meticulous selection of our ingredients is based on the climate, the health of the soil they're grown in, the people that grow them, and the explosive flavor of each tomato, pepper, onion, and stalk of cilantro we use. Over 100 different varietals of New York State, Certified Organic Heirloom Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Hot Peppers, Cilantro, Eggplant, Onion, and Garlic go into our jars, and every lid is sealed by hand. We use no artificial preservatives ... only fresh Lime Juice. For other tropical ingredients, like the fresh Oranges, Mangoes and Coconuts we need from our friends a little closer to the equator, we've designated funds to aid cooperative farmland in places that could use a helping hand, and are taking strides towards Carbon Neutrality. We've also teamed up with Community Gardeners, Local CSA's, and Public Schools to transform the rooftops, compostable landfills, backyards, empty lots, cement parks and rough kept streets of NYC into a living, breathing, Urban Farm.
We are a New Generation of Salsa Makers Inspiring Global Flavor with Local, Sustainable Ingredients.
OUR PROMISE IS TO CONSTANTLY EVOLVE - PUSHING BOUNDARIES, GIVING BACK, AND EXPOSING THE VOICES AND NEW METHODS WE BELIEVE IN.
Take the Lid OFF!
The Brooklyn Salsa Company
Focusing intensely on the longevity and sustainability of their land, the Hepworth's have been farming in the Hudson River Valley of New York since 1818. Today, led by 7th generation farmer Amy Hepworth, her sister Gale, and her partner Gerry Greco, the farm has grown to over 400 acres with extraordinary crop diversity and solar powered facilities. For organic tomatoes, the rotation is 60 acres, and the vast majority of those grown for The Brooklyn Salsa Company are Heirloom varietals of infinite shape and color. We are proud to maintain Direct Trade relationships with our farmers and strive to ignite their work in freedom and sunshine.
