From the farm: Our Texas native pecans are sustainable growing in the wild. They do not require irrigation and are compatible with soil-building grasses. They are delicious - these small nuts are packed with flavor that many Texans say is the best and natives have the highest oil content of any pecan. Researchers say it is even healthier than olive oil. They are raw - activated recipes where low drying temperatures do not damage nutrients. They are activated - we soak in filtered water and Redmond sea salt releasing vitamins and enzymes as the nut sprouts, and dissolving enzyme inhibitors to make them digestible. Low-temperature drying preserves delicate nutrients. 
Your purchase supports a rural small family enterprise. Our family living on our small farm are the only workers in our pecan shop.  

Your purchase supports sustainable farming. The pecan work allows our whole family to stay on the farm so we can transform a formerly mono-crop chemical farm to a sustainable, natural, diverse farm.
Family Recipe Sea Salt Crispy is our basic soaked and dried (sprouted, but only slightly) recipe, with Redmond sea salt. The natural sweetness of the native pecan and a touch of salt makes it awesome in sweet or savory recipes.
We encourage you to enjoy the activated native pecans like we do, as a condiment sprinkled on lots of basic whole foods like rice, squash, grains, yogurt, oatmeal, vegetables, soups, etc. to economically add lots of flavor and crunch that makes a plain dish fantastic. Pecans are 70% oil, providing healthy fats in an unrefined, unprocessed form. A little goes a long way when you add just a few to make your dish something special.
Our activated pecans are on the Weston Price Foundation "Best Food" List and a staff top 10 pick at Wheatsville Co-Op in Austin.
