About Us
Penny DeWaal and Shani Farboud, both of whom have spent lots of time enjoying foods from around the world, concluded that Vancouver Island needed an upgrade with its variety of local spice.

Shani Farboud, a chef by trade with a passion for cooking unique and flavourful foods, created Fat Chili Farm’s first ever product which is a cumin and honey based habanero sauce called: Wizards Choice. Not long after, Fat Chili Farm was born.

Penny Dewaal, self proclaimed Chili Queen of the Cowichan Valley, can be found behind the scenes crunching numbers, and in the greenhouse making sure the crops are fruitful. Whereas Shani, Penny’s husband, can be found creating recipes and making the product in the onsite commercial kitchen.
All of the Chilis grown at Fat Chili Farm are grown inside a glass green house and Polly tunnels. Currently Fat Chili Farm grows 1500 Chili plants, with 45 different species. The plants are grown using organic methods, though they are not certified. All of their hot sauces are hand-crafted in small batches in a commercial kitchen located on their property.
