The Almond Guy – Here you will find incredibly fresh California almonds of the “Nonpareil” variety, which means ‘unparalleled’ in French. And indeed, they are unparalleled in quality and taste, being one of the largest and sweetest variety of almond. As of 2007, California stores are no longer allowed to sell unprocessed almonds, the ones you find in stores are steam-processed or chemically fumigated (gross). But, we as the farmer are still allowed to offer the unpasteurized real thing, which still contain all the nutrients and goodness! When you taste our almonds, you’ll immediately notice the difference in quality… straight from nature, just as it’s supposed to be! You can also find our products in nearly all of Orange County’s farmer’s markets. In the meantime, we invite you to browse through our online store and shop with confidence. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you enjoy our delicious products! (NEW! Starting April 13, 2016)
