Patricia and Stacey Galfskiy started Chillilicious 2010 - Patricia makes a range of medium-spiced chilli chutneys, jam and picallili which sell alongside Stacey’s chilli-inspired fused glass artwork. They've also worked up to branding themselves as Scotland's first chilli farm, buying two and a half extra acres of land on which to grow everything from jalapeno to the Trinidad moruga scorpion, the hottest chilli in the world. A chilli and coriander oatcake has been produced as a partner for the relishes - they go particularly well with smoked cheese. Products are sold online, through food events, to trade and at farmers' markets - see their website for a calendar.
As you might guess from the name, the main business of the Chillilicious Farm is growing and selling chillis and chilli-related foodstuffs: hot sauces, chutney, chocolate, even some chilli and ginger beer. There are two polytunnels for pick-your-own-chilli purposes and a biodiversity pond walk too. That’s not all the farm has to offer though. Stacey Galfskiy, the younger half of the mother-daughter team that founded the business, also operates a fused glass studio on-site, including a kiln, grinder, and work station. In addition to running classes and workshops for glassmaking enthusiasts, Galfskiy also creates unique fused glass chopping boards for sale in the farm shop, upcycled from locally sourced glass bottles.

Jam making and preserving in Fife26 Jul 2012
Forget strawberry - a new wave of stirrers are more interested in chilli and wild garlic
With four major fruit farms, Newburgh’s heritage orchards and an increasing number of people dedicated to scouring the hedgerows for wild berries, it’s no surprise that newcomers to the Fife jam and chutney making scene have found fierce competition.
