Video: America, the Almonds are Blossoming!

Dear brothers and sisters,

Amidst the cold and rain the almond trees are blossoming. All of a sudden, the dormant trees have waxed ethereal into song. As far as the eye could see, the great Central Valley is a sea of white.

Once again, the almonds are blossoming.Again, we’ve been given another chance.

We interview Steve Koretof. He and his dad Nic and his brother David produce the almonds we make into our alive, organic almond butter. They are fifth generation family farmers here in California. Imagine! They are the husbandmen of almost 70,000 almond trees!

The devotion and constant care they bestow comes through in the flavor and texture of our almond butter.

Their intentionality is our secret ingredient.

We invite you to enjoy the video and meet Steve, the almond grower.
Please accept our best wishes for you and family to prosper in good health,

Recipe: Raw Lemon Ginger Chia Cheesecake

by Unconventional Baker

This cake may look fancy, but it’s honestly a simple, no-fuss dessert. I love decorating my cakes naturally, using edible materials that enhance the flavors in the desserts. So really it’s just an easy raw cashew cheesecake with a few slices of lemon on top, a couple of raw nuggets made from some of the crust mixture and a sprig of rosemary + a sprinkle of chia seeds on top… because they’re cute 🙂 All in all couldn’t be any simpler, but so delicious.


¾ cups raw almonds
1 soft medjool date, pitted
1 tbsp coconut oil, softened
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup


¾ cup raw cashews, pre-soaked and strained*
5 tbsp fresh lemon juice (I used meyer lemons)
zest of 1 lemon
3 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil, liquefied
1 tsp ground ginger (spice)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
⅛ tsp turmeric (spice)
1 tbsp chia seeds

Black Sesame Seed Flour – Alive & Organic

According to Dr. Rupali Dutta, Chief Nutritionist, SmartCooky, “Black sesame seeds are a good source of energy due to the high fat content. They contain healthy fats like polyunsaturated fatty acids and Omega-6. They also contain fiber, iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.”

We created a black sesame flour that makes them all the more useful.

Almond Cashew Brazil Nut Millennial Butter – Alive & Organic

Dedicated to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, the creative geniuses who have done so much to shape the modern epoch.

Today, modern scientists recognize it as “an essential mineral of pivotal importance for human health,” with anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anti-cancer potential. This mineral is also a powerful antioxidant, which plays itself out in many ways in regard to your health.”

We’ve added cashews for smoothness and spreadability along with California sundried raisins, honey for delight and a pinch of Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt to bring out the flavors.

We Welcome Investors

Demand for organic food is booming. Last year sales of organic products jumped 11% to more than $39 billion. Also, the number of US organic farmers and processors has grown by 250% since 2002, when the natural organic program began. Indeed, organic food production has more than tripled since that time.

Thanks to your kind support, we too are growing. We wish to hire more teamworkers and to purchase tools and equipment. We are seeking long term, stable capital. If taking a strategic position in the organic food industry appeals to you, let’s talk!
