Video: A Visit With Our Beekeeping Friends at Hawai’i Harvest Honey

Dear brothers and sisters,

Recently Aaron, our Digital Media Manager, visited with the people who produce our Hawaiian Native Forest Honey. Their apiary is located in a remote part of the Island of Hawaii. It is a locale of immense, natural beauty.

Perhaps you will come away with a sense of the dedication and intentionality that goes into making this unique honey.We feel privileged to offer it to you. We trust you will agree that its lilting, melodious flavor is beyond compare.

Please accept our best wishes for you and family to prosper in good health,

“Whitman” Hazelnut Almond Chocolate Butter – Alive & Organic

Created from almonds grown by California family farmers and hazelnuts grown by Oregon family farmers.
We’ve named it after Walt Whitman who wrote,
I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.

We make our Hazelnut Almond Chocolate Butter in Berkeley; one of the great centers of learning. Twenty-five Nobel prize winners have taught here.


Coconut Flour – Alive & Organic

Coconut flour is a delicious, gluten-free and beneficial alternative to other flours.

It is high in fiber, protein and healthy fats and free from wheat and other grains. It is also low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories. Plus, this flour has a low score on the glycemic index.

This makes it a favorite among Paleo dieters, gluten-free eaters — including those with celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity — those with digestive problems, anyone with a nut allergy, those with diabetes, vegetarians and just about everyone else in between.

In reality, coconut flour is not actually “flour” in the way we normally think of it. It contains zero grains and consists of 100 percent pure coconut meat.


John Muir Almond Butter Bytes – Alive & Organic

Created from almonds grown in California’s great Central Valley by the Koretoff family. They’ve been farming in California for five generations. Each byte is wrapped in gold foil to denote the intentionality they devote to growing the almonds. They are the true husbandmen of their soil and trees.

We make our bytes in Berkeley; a great center of learning. Twenty-five Nobel prize winners have taught there.



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.

Think of it as a doorway to creativity. What casseroles, pies and desserts you will make!




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.
Starting with almonds grown by California family farmers, we’ve added Brazil Nuts.
Dr.Mercola tells us,”Brazil Nuts are an important source of selenium.Selenium is a trace element a Swedish chemist, Baron Jöns Jacob Berzelius, discovered almost 200 years ago. 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!
