Our Certified Organic Native Pecans have been harvested from trees in Missouri that grow "wild." You might call them heirloom or native pecans because they are not growing in rows on a pecan farm, but rather have been there for generations and grow "wild". Native pecans are smaller than Texas pecans, but they are just as tender and delicious. Many people believe them to be more flavorful! Each nut has been soaked and dried at low temperatures.
They are soaked as Sally Fallon and the Weston A. Price Foundation suggests, and then dehydrated at low temperatures.
Our certified organic pecans are fresh, flavorful, soft, yet crispy and incredibly delicious. We do our best to procure the highest quality nuts available. These come from small family farms in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. They are wonderful, certified organic pecans coming from another small business in a rural community in America.
Once received these pecans are soaked and dried under controlled conditions with commercial equipment in a USDA inspected kitchen. We take extra measures, such as refrigeration and vapor barrier packaging to insure that you receive only the best.
In July 2003, the FDA released a qualified health claim stating "Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
