Starling Farm is a family owned pepper plantation located in the heart of the world’s premier pepper growing region, Kampot Province, Cambodia. As members of the KPPA (Kampot Pepper Producers Association), with GI (Geographic Indication) status, this guarantees the highest quality product.
The pepper is totally organic, grown using only traditional methods dating back over 1,000 years. The pepper is dried in the sun for several days prior to being sterilized and vacuum packed so that it reaches you as fresh as it left the farm.
