When the folks at Facebook discovered the work we’ve been doing at Small Axe, they felt it was a story that needed to be told. What ensued was the creation of this incredible short film which highlights the Small Axe brand: It’s not just about peppers, It’s about people.
After the production of the video, we were invited to Menlo Park, California to meet face-to-face with some executives on Facebook’s campus.
Sheryl Sandberg is one of the most influential women in the world. As COO of Facebook, it’s fair to say that she understands the importance and value of bringing people of all backgrounds together. We had a rare chance to meet with her privately and tell the Small Axe Story.
Sure, we have two very different mediums for connecting people — hers being Facebook, one of the most important social networks ever created, and ours being local community farms, but we all agreed on the importance of community engagement and vowed to continue our respective missions! Check out the photo of us below:
Recently, during National Small Business week, she cited Small Axe Peppers as one of her favorite examples of a business bringing people together! See her post below!
Well, there you have it! Celebrities, influencers, foodies, politicians, and leaders from all across the country are enjoying the Small Axe story nearly as much as our delicious sauces.
