A few years ago, as I got healthier, I found that my body would
no longer tolerate the stale, rancid nuts I was buying in my normal food stores
(PCC, Whole Foods, etc.). Also, as my diet got simpler and I was doing
less combining of foods, it became more important that foods tasted good on
their own. I knew that if I wanted to continue eating nuts, I was going to
have to find fresh ones.
That's when I
began searching out small growers to buy from. When I finally found the
products and realized how far superior they were to the nuts I'd been getting in
stores, in addition to being less expensive *and* sustainably grown, I started
buying extra so I could offer them to my fellow raw fooders and health
seekers. For the past couple years I've been selling them via the Yahoo
databases, with the goal of eventually having a website. I'm happy to say
it has finally become a reality. I'd like to announce the launch of
local customers, the website is really just to get information about what is
available, prices, etc. Shipping charges are added automatically if you
order from the website, so you'll need to email me privately with your order if
you'd like local pick-up. While at the website, please take the time to
add your email at the bottom of the homepage so you can be notified when I have
new products available.
While I'm continuing the process of
tweaking, I'd appreciate any feedback you'd care to share. I'd like to
thank Saqib Rasool and Yilei Wang of EfuRa Designs (www.EfuRa.com
) for their fine work on designing
and building my website. I'd highly recommend them to anyone wanting high
quality website development.
Happy New Year,
P.S. I will still be selling fresh fruits of various
kinds during the growing season here in Washington State but these won't be
featured on the website (which is only for shippable products).
