It is highly prized as the skin is more tender than most figs and the oil in its fertilized seeds give it extra flavor. A glorious white fig. This is the fig you can’t stop eating. A handful are a meal in itself.

Alive, Organic Bonus Program – Heritage Olive Oil and Free Shipping

From a Glorious Elder

I recently discovered your products by purchasing Almond Butter at a store. That led me to your website where I discovered many many more products that appealed to me. I ordered persimmon and mango and they are delicious! I greatly appreciate your complimentary gift to geezers like me (75 yrs). New to CA I find it difficult to get by and it’s been a challenge to eat as I’ve been accustomed all my life-which is to say-healthful food. That’s why the bag of raisins meant so much to me. I expected a small sample so you can imagine my delight when I opened my box and saw that huge bag.

It will take me a while to eat all the goodies.

Many thanks for the company culture you foster and your generosity.

Hawaiian Native Forest Honey – Alive & Organic

Our Native Forest Honey is alive with beneficial enzymes and intact grains of pollen and propolis.. Its rich, slightly fruity taste and silk texture complement, but don’t overwhelm, other flavors and ingredients. Its taste reflects the bouquet of tropical blossoms whose nectar the bees collect as they forage in high-elevation forests and valleys. A sonata with high notes of floral and fruit.

Gathered by a family of two generations of beekeepers. They tell us: Both our philosophy about working with the bees, which we regard as a partnership, and our organic regulations ensure that we interject ourselves as little as possible into the daily activities of the bees and allow them to do what they do so superbly. Hawai’i’s lush and varied vegetation, available year-round, provides the variety and supply of pollens, nectars and propolis that are ideal for bee health.

Do not feed honey to infants under one year of age.
