more questions I’m answering about the raw almond buy

Back to my five-part series tomorrow.  Today I figured a way to get my cases of raw/organic agave SHIPPED in our raw-almond buy . . . and also add some great deals for you on raw walnuts, sunflower seeds, pecans, raw honey, organic cold-pressed coconut oil, and other items like dried fruit.   I’m excited!   I could never figure out how to ship it affordably before.   Those of you who have a co-op, or who want to organize one, you will LOVE this!   Remember, 1,100 lbs. or more (and this will include any item, not just the almonds) gets cheap shipping of $0.25/lb.   We’re getting tons of emails–please know we will email as soon as the order is ready to kick off.     You won’t miss it if you read this blog or get the free newsletter.

Questions I’ve been asked:

How do the almonds come? in 50 or 100 pound sacks or in a bin?

50# boxes.

Also is there a maximum poundage?  

No maximum for group orders, but to appease California law since no one is allowed more than 100 lbs. per day of RAW almonds, the order form will require that you put a name in for each buyer of 100 lbs.   So if you order 2,000 lbs., you’ll need to give 20 names.

And what quality is this almond size wise and are they  carmel or nonpareil almonds?

The variety is Butte Padre 23-30 size. I chose them for flavor (tried several varieties). I could offer a bunch of varieties but wanted to keep it simple because this takes a lot of my time–these will be comparable to what is sold in grocery stores, size-wise. Not the giant ones they use in Jordan almonds (too expensive, and I’m trying to keep cost down), and not the  really small  ones either.

Is it possible to get them sliced raw almonds or slivered? some of the people who order with me want to know.

I don’t think so. But I will look into it. They will oxidize faster that way and won’t germinate–not sure this would be a popular item.

Do the almonds come shelled?


Some of my group are asking where they come from.

California, long-time, reputable ranchers who friends of mine have worked with for many years. Same people I worked with last year.
