Tour Longhurst Farms Nut Factory - Featuring Sprouted Nuts and Seeds
See how nuts and seeds are sprouted and learn why they are important to your health. Sprouting fundamentally changes the composition of the nut or seed. Bioavailability of the nutrients inside the nut is 100% assimmable after sprouting. After sprouting, we dehydrate the nuts and seeds at a very low temperature to retain valuable nutrients. We do not roast our products. We also cover some of the nuts with imported German anti-oxidant chocolate. You will also see how we mill the nuts into fresh Nut Butter. Our Ice Cream is locally made by Cowboy Creamery. Hand crafted in small 3 gallon batches and contains an abundance of fresh cream. The ratio is 4 parts cream to 1 part milk. 20 flavors to choose from. We distribute pallets of our products to hundreds of locations across the USA. You will visit our retail store in front of our processing plant and warehouse where you will be invited to try free samples of our nuts, seeds and nut butters.
