Marian Farms is the only producer of Demeter-certified Biodynamic® almonds in North America. Our Biodynamic® farming practices and special pasteurizing methods preserve the life forces in the almonds. Pasteurization of almonds is required by law. We use flash pasteurization, which only allows steam to touch the almonds for three seconds, and we do not roast the almonds. This preserves their living quality. They are still able to sprout and retain their enzymes and vitamins. Almonds are a great source of protein and fiber and high in Vitamin E, biotin, calcium, magnesium and unsaturated fats, making them an excellent heart-healthy snack. Our organic almonds are free from chemical residues sometimes found in conventionally-grown and processed almonds. Our methods result in crisp almonds with a complex flavor profile and a superior shelf life. We are pleased to offer two almond varieties: Nonpareil and Carmel. Nonpareil, sometimes called the “Queen of almonds”, have a delicate, sweet flavor and are commonly used in baking. Carmel almonds have a bolder, Amaretto-type flavor.
Our biodynamic® organic almonds are available year-round.
