I have been 100% raw for 1 year, vegan for 25 years. During my journey, I became more and more frustrated at trying to determine if the nut, seed, or dried fruit I wanted to buy was actually raw. After a lot of research and asking very detailed questions, I found some farmers that I have confidence about their products.
A buddy and I then decided to apply that knowledge and start a company a few months ago called Raw From the Farm. We sell reasonably priced, sustainably grown, organic raw nuts and sun-dried fruits that we buy direct from farmers. You can read more about us at www.rawfromthefarm.com.
