Video: 10 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Starting a New Vegetable Garden

Dear brothers and sisters,

The family farmers of this great land have come through for you. Thanks to them we have good stocks of almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, pecans, macadamias, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Alive and organic, of course!

Together, we will meet this challenge and go on to renew, regenerate and re-create ourselves and this American earth.

It is our privilege to be of service. We want you to know that we are here for you.

Spring is almost here. Get growing, America!

Your questions, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

A Letter From a Dear Customer

Dear Friends at Living Tree Community,

I received my order today and I want to thank you very much for sending it. I am certain that everything will be delicious! I know people appreciate your work more than ever right now. For example, hypothetically speaking, if someone has the coronavirus and have found that eating solid food (for some strange reason!) makes it more difficult to breathe, that doesn’t happen when one of your delicious nut butters is spread on a juicy apple. Importantly, at the same time, this enables that same individual to know that they are getting excellent, wonderful nutrition that will support their health. On behalf of any person that might notice that, I thank you very much.

Stay well,
All the best,

Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – Organic

Imagine! Organic California almonds, grown by family farmers, covered with Fair Trade, organic Dark Chocolate. Just the thing for hiking the John Muir Trail or as a snack after gymnastics.





Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic

These flakes are a favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.Yeast has been an ingredient for baking and fermentation for more than 3000 years.

Nutritional yeast is made from a single-celled organism of fungi called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. In a controlled environment it is cultured, left to grow, then deactivated, harvested, washed and dried. The deactivation process prevents the yeast from being used as a leavening agent.

Nutritional yeast is a flavor enhancer that offers naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and micro-nutrients. These large flakes are a bit spicier and have more yeast flavor than other nutritional yeast.

Green Split Pea – Organic

Green peas are believed to be a distant relative of the field pea that was native to the Middle East and Central Asia. Since prehistoric times, dried peas have been consumed and were prized by the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, China and Rome.

Green split peas are not only tasty and simple to cook, but are also a good source of protein, iron and dietary fiber.




Vanilla Powder – Organic

We have brought Organic Vanilla Powder back, despite its high price, as we have gotten so many inquiries. It is considered by some to be a culinary indispensable. It is made by pulverizing the whole dried beans to a fine powder. It is well suited to incorporation into liquid-sensitive mixtures, such as some icings and melted chocolate, where even a small amount of liquid could create a problem. In addition, the flavor of vanilla powder is more intense than that of most extracts and does not dissipate even with prolonged cooking. Vanilla powder will keep well, stored in an opaque, airtight container in a cool, dry place.
