Video: Some Reflections on our Fortieth Anniversary

Dear brothers and sisters,

We began as an organic farm devoted to propagating heirloom and historic apple trees.We now make nut butters, oils and chocolates.It has been a journey spanning some four decades.

In this video we share some thoughts on our endeavor especially in regard to alive, organic almond butter, the pillar of our business. We also discuss our secret ingredient, namely, intentionality.

Please accept our best wishes for good health, prosperity and success to you and family,

Espresso Salted Caramel Raw Cheesecake

by Unconventional Baker


When you have chocolate + espresso + salted caramel in the mix, you’re bound to end up with a pretty epic cake, right?

This layered vegan cheesecake is deliciously creamy and dreamy and comes together in a breeze (as most raw cakes do). I got a request from someone on Instagram to make a salted caramel cheesecake last week, and I thought well, it’s been a while since a caramel cake happened + caramel is one of my absolute favorite flavors in the world, so why not. And so this lush layer cake was the result.

We Welcome Investors

The U.S. organic market in 2018 broke through the $50 billion mark for the first time, with sales hitting a record $52.5 billion, up 6.3 percent from the previous year, according to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey released by the Organic Trade Association.
Characteristics that are identified with organic, such as clean, transparent, fresh and sustainable helped boost organic sales to unprecedented levels, according to the survey.

New records were made in both the organic food market and the organic non-food market. Organic food sales reached $47.9 billion, for an increase of 5.9 percent. Sales of organic non-food products jumped by 10.6 percent to $4.6 billion. The growth rate for organic continued to easily outpace the general market: in 2018, total food sales in the U.S. edged up just 2.3 percent while total non-food sales rose 3.7 percent.
Almost 6 percent (5.7%) of the food sold in this country is now organic. Today’s consumers can find organic products – food and non-food items — in every aisle of their grocery stores. They can choose organic in their favorite big box store, their club warehouse store, even in their neighborhood convenience store, and increasingly on the internet. Organic is no longer a niche market.

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!
