Our Organic Raw Hazelnuts are grown on a family farm in Aurora, Oregon named Meridian Orchards. Meridian Orchard is a beautiful 80-acre Organic orchard filled with regal hazelnut trees. Owner, Jim Birkemeier, continues to pioneer unique natural methods for attaining high-quality, Organic hazelnuts and for strengthening the disease resistance of the trees.
Oregon’s hazelnut shellers have decided to require pasteurization of all hazelnut kernels processed in their facilities and subsequently sold as raw nuts. Hummingbird sells Organic Oregon-grown hazelnuts that have been pasteurized through a steam pasteurization process. These hazelnuts have been steam pasteurized at a maximum temperature of 200°F.
Hazelnuts are great for snacking or trail mixes; use them in baking and confections; dice them up and sprinkle on salads or ice cream. Enjoy this Organic delight grown in the beautiful state of Oregon.
Hazelnuts are valued for their pleasant flavor but did you know they are one of the most nutritious nuts? Hazelnuts are a rich source of dietary fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, and heart healthy B vitamins.
Not only are hazelnuts a high-quality source of protein and fiber, they also contain a variety of antioxidants such as vitamin E.
