Fresh walnuts and cold-pressed walnut oil from a family-owned family farm in Northern California. “It all began back in 1975 when my parents acquired land in a small, beautiful valley located in Northern California…My “a-ha” moment came the first time I shared our organic walnuts with my husband, Eric. When we first started dating, he so kindly bought a bag of organic walnuts from a popular natural food chain as a thoughtful gesture. I ate one walnut and had to spit it out. It tasted old, dry, and bitter. If you’re reading this, I’m sure you can relate. I had never purchased walnuts from a store because I always had access to fresh ones…it was during this moment I realized, most of the general public does not have access to freshly harvested organic walnuts. That is, unless you know a walnut farmer. Well, now you do…Over the past 35 years, I’ve watched my father tend to his trees and the land as if they were his own children. There’s a lot of love and care which goes into growing our organic walnuts.”

Quality herbs and supplements created by a naturopathic physician. “We start and end with whole, raw herbs. We start by growing herbs on our 90 acre certified organic farm, and then use freeze-drying to remove only the water. The end product is the whole herb in its original form still raw, intact, viable, and retaining the benefits of the fresh herb just as Mother Nature intended. We don’t believe in harsher forms of processing such as air or spray drying, chemical extraction, or standardized extracts which alter whole herbs, potentially excluding or destroying active constituents.
