Raw Nuts and Sun-Dried Fruits

Hi everyone – I am new to this forum. I like it a lot!

I have been 100% raw for 1 year, vegan for 25 years. During my journey, I became more and more frustrated at trying to determine if the nut, seed, or dried fruit I wanted to buy was actually raw. After a lot of research and asking very detailed questions, I found some farmers that I have confidence about their products.

A buddy and I then decided to apply that knowledge and start a company a few months ago called Raw From the Farm. We sell reasonably priced, sustainably grown, organic raw nuts and sun-dried fruits that we buy direct from farmers. You can read more about us at www.rawfromthefarm.com.

Glad to be here!

  • Hi DreamBrother and Joesc -

    yes, we have been concerned about this and talking with the farmers we work with for about the last 6 months or so. Very excited to see so much interest growing about it.

    I am hoping the interest gets bigger.

  • Layla,

    Three new processes have been developed to cleanse the surface of almonds. They were developed with our Organic growers and handlers in mind. Our organic handler has had success sprouting treated almonds with one of these gentler methods

    I received this email from the almond board today after I questioned them about pasteurized almonds being able to sprout. Any thoughts on this?

  • Hi, I live in Osaka and as i told before i am totally a beginner. I am not sure what else i can buy except vegetable and fruits. Can i buy any nuts, almonds, walnuts from any store? Or I should find some special stores for raw food or? What we have here is just raw fishes-sashimi. So can i eat raw fish?

  • Judy,

    If you are a meat eater you can eat raw fish. I am and eat cold-smoked salmon. This is a vegan board so you won’t find much referencing to meat or diary products.

    Raw nuts and seeds can be found at health food stores or ordered in bulk on the internet.
