Sprouting does two things to the nut: it releases bound up nutrition, and it breaks down the protective barrier around the nut. Put together, this means increased bio-availability to your body: more nutritious, and easier to digest!
We are committed to operating our farm in a way that honors the past, the present, and the future. We acknowledge how productive this land has been for a thousand generations before us, and we are committed to ensuring it is productive for a thousand generations after us.
What about allergies?
We are not doctors, and this is not medical advice. However, the majority of people who have a mild nut allergy can eat sprouted walnuts with no negative side affect. In fact, Jenn is allergic to walnuts! We started sprouted walnuts for her sake - it was the only way she was able to enjoy the food we produce on our farm!
