About Glenda’s Farmhouse
Glenda’s Farmhouse is an Andersen & Sons Shelling brand named for the Andersen brothers’ mother. Since 1904, the Andersen family has been farming walnuts, prunes, and cattle in Vina, California. They have merged with Western Nut Company and are expanding into new brands and other tree nut commodities, such as cashews, almonds, and pecans.
Our walnuts are locally grown and certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). Walnuts add versatility in the kitchen as a snack or ingredient. They are delicious in salads and better in desserts and are an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. This makes it easy to enjoy healthy, high-quality walnuts in every bite you take.
At Glenda’s Farmhouse, our walnuts are grown in Northern California, one of the world’s top English Walnut growing regions. Nestled in the northern Sacramento Valley near the Sacramento River, the climate, soil, and water supply combine to provide a superb growing environment. Along with the emphasis on organic value, our walnuts provide a delicious, healthful treat.
Why Choose Organic Walnuts?
Nuts are great for your health. Not only are they delicious snacks, but they’re packed with protein, fiber, omega 6 and 3 fats, vitamins, and minerals.
Our California-grown organic walnuts are low in saturated fat and high in polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated fat. They are a great source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which act as natural anti-inflammatory agents and help promote heart health.
Although walnuts offer excellent health benefits, choosing non-organic nuts instead of organically grown nuts means you will be increasing your exposure to chemicals. Nuts grown traditionally are often saturated in pesticides during the growing process and sprayed with pesticides when they’re picked and shelled. Buying them means you run the risk of the chemicals being absorbed into your body. Organic nuts are grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or other chemicals. They are the ideal choice!
