Karma Farm's Chilli Recipe- Karma Farm was founded in 2018 by husband-and-wife duo Scott and McCall Wilder after they struggled to find a casual dining spot that was safe for their family’s dietary restrictions. With an auto-immune disease, life-threatening nut allergy and number of food intolerances to consider when eating out, the family took matters into their own hands and decided to create a spot offering the real, clean food they’ve been eating at home for decades. Like so many families with similar dietary, lifestyle and allergen challenges, the Wilders wanted to create a mindful, clean-eating, go-to destination for guests to be able to relax without the worry of a reaction. Check out their Granny's Chilli Recipe below.
