We are now offering organically grown, truly raw, natural almonds. These almonds are not USDA Certified Organic, but are grown in accordance with the organic standards. Growing organically removes some of the tools we have to protect the trees and the crop from disease, so we work diligently to keep the orchard sanitary. We hand sort our almonds to ensure that our customers receive only the very best!
At Briden Wilson Farm, we currently grow two almond varieties, Nonpareil and Carmel. Many almond consumers are not aware that different almond varieties exist. An easy way to explain is to think of apples; apples come in all different varieties such as Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Gala, Fuji, etc, yet they are all apples. Below are pictures and a brief description of the two almond varieties we grow on our farm.
These almonds are NOT pasteurized and are perfect for soaking, germinating, sprouting, blending, or just enjoying in there naturally dried state, just like they came off our trees. Click here for more information on pasteurization.
Our bulk raw almonds are 100% peanut free.
