While providing our customers premium organic walnuts, we aim to support family farming and protect farmland. We farm and process our product using methods that enhance and care for the soil, air, water, energy resources, and overall environment
We are a vertically integrated farming operation and raise, hull, dry, shell, sort, store, package, and sell organic walnuts. Our walnuts are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and non-GMO project verified, gluten-free, kosher, and certified vegan.

Health Benefits of Walnuts
Improve Heart Health: Based on research by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), fresh raw walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that help keep your heart, lungs, blood vessels, and immune system working the way they should.
Enhance Bone Health: Walnuts, much like cashews and almonds, also contain trace amounts of calcium, magnesium, copper, vitamin D12, Vitamin B6, phosphorous, and folate, all of which are essential in maintaining optimal bone health.
Boost Brain Health: Walnuts are the ultimate brain food. They have a high concentration of DHA, a type of Omega-3 fatty acid, which can help improve memory and focus. These nuts are also known to relieve stress and may help prevent age-related cognitive decline.
Control Diabetes: Walnuts are considered “diabetic-friendly” because they are very low in carbohydrates and have less effect on blood sugars than other foods. Eaten in moderation, the protein, fat, and fiber in walnuts may help limit the spike in blood sugars that often occurs after eating.
Reduce Inflammation: The polyphenols and phytochemicals in walnuts can help lower inflammation in the body. This has beneficial implications for many chronic diseases.
Hair Care: Regularly snacking on walnuts can also have great benefits for your hair. High amounts of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and antioxidants in the nut can strengthen hair follicles and prevent dandruff and hair loss.
Add Years to Your Life: Regularly snacking on a handful of walnuts just five times a week could add an extra 1.3 years to your life, research suggests.
