Native pecans are many Texans’ favorite and are the variety richest in healthy oils. Unlike certified organic orchards, wild-harvested natives are usually completely unsprayed. Our Walnuts come from a Family Orchard in California who build healthy soil in addition to being Certified Organic. All our other nuts/seeds are certified organic. We keep them refrigerated, sprout (soak, then gently dry below 105F to preserve delicate vitamins and enzymes, improve digestibility, and release nutrients for better flavor than roasted without losing nutrition), and low-temperature grind them to the perfect texture in hand batches on our small family farm. If oil separates, you knead this recyclable USA oxygen barrier bag to recombine. Keep the convenient flat profile squeeze pak on its side or upside down at the back of fridge door to take up almost no space in your fridge! No spoon or knife needed. Throw in backpack or purse for super tasty and healthy on the go protein and nutrition. When empty, cut off top then use knife or spoon to get last bites.We work hard to keep them perfectly fresh and ship them direct. No distributor warehouse time. Date bagged and best by on each bag. Our passion is to keep them fresh and wonderful. Please get in touch with any questions or concerns.
