GROWING
Almonds grow best in climates with warm summers and wet winters, making South Africa (Western Cape region) a perfect source. When the almonds have matured the shell splits, becomes dry, turns brown in color and are ready to be harvested.

HARVESTING
Almonds are picked once a year, and take a few months to complete the whole harvest. During harvest time tarps are unfolded around each tree and placed underneath to catch falling almonds. When the tarps are in place, machines go from tree to tree, shake the almonds off into the tarps and then are sent to be cleaned.

CLEANING/SORTING
When the almonds have been collected, they are scanned for contaminants, cleaned and sorted. After the almonds are cleaned they have an extremely long shelf life as long as the shell remains intact. Before each shipment we remove the shell, vacuum seal them in packages and ship them out.
