Ever Wonder About The Nuts We Sell?

By Lead Bulk Buyer  •  Thursday, February 26th, 2015

We thought you’d like to know how much thought and research goes into the amazing selection of NUTS that we sell…and how different our selection is from the other guys.


Our Bulk Nuts…
A huge selection of ORGANIC and Fair Trade. What’s Fair Trade? Here’s a quote from Fair Trade USA: Fair Trade goods are just that. Fair. From far-away farms to your shopping cart, products that bear our logo come from farmers and workers who are justly compensated. We help farmers in developing countries build sustainable businesses that positively influence their communities. We’re a nonprofit, but we don’t do charity. Instead, we teach disadvantaged communities how to use the free market to their advantage. With Fair Trade USA, the money you spend on day-to-day goods can improve an entire community’s day-to-day lives.

We love to tell you about the source and origin! It’s easy for us because we know our suppliers. We visit their facilities, taste the products arriving for processing, and build strong trusting relationships. Like Tierra Farms in Valatie, NY. Tierra buys ever increasing amounts of product directly from farms, some of which they’ve worked with for over a decade. We partner with Tierra for custom mixes, packaged dried fruits…they give us the power to create unique products using ingredients we know are Certified Organic and fresh.


Roasted FRESH! Our vendors roast right before they ship.

Buy as much or as little as you want! We’ve believed in the power of buying bulk for almost 30 years. Buy a little or buy a lot. It’s up to YOU.

Their Bulk Nuts…

Roasted with added oils
It’s tough to know what country they’re coming from.
Mostly packaged. SAD!

Our Bulk Department proudly sources the very best.
