Nuts: No Fuss, What Muss?!

Father’s Day is right around the corner. So once you’ve got Dad situated in that recliner with his favorite sports on TV and that remote control all to himself, how can you make his day even better? You could mow the lawn. You could wash his car. You could fire up the grill and make a batch of this month’s recipe for Apricot-glazed Pork Chops with Chopped Oven-Roasted Almonds or you could really show him you care by gifting him with Nuts from Bella Viva Orchards. Now, that’s doing it right, friends!

Nuts. The perfect answer to a low-maintenance, healthier full-on noshing session. We’ve got a great selection of Nuts that are sure to include Dad’s faves. Locally-grown Organic Raw Almonds? Heck yeah. Fun-to-eat Organic Roasted Salted Pistachios or super low-fuss no muss shelled and salted Organic Roasted Pistachios? How can he resist! Organic Shelled Pecans or Candied Pecans? Yes, please. Candied Walnuts, brawny Organic Brazil Nuts, lightly-salted Roasted Cashews and downright crunchy Raw Hazelnuts? Don’t hold back! And if you really want to do it up big for Dad, explore our exceptional selection of Flavored Nuts. Can’t decide? Grab a couple of bags of our Mixed Nuts or cruise through our Nuts section and pick up an el-yummo supply of all of his favorites.

Now, for those of you who watch the news, all that talk about dry conditions this year might be making you nervous. We watch that same news. It’s no secret that it takes water to grow fruits and nuts. This is where our commitment to managing our resources comes in. We live in a region that has drought conditions from time to time, and we’re looking at one of those times right now. We want our planet to be happy with us and we want to continue growing our fruits and nuts long into the future. While you may have heard stats on how much water it takes to grow a pound of Almonds, studies show that it takes approximately the same amount of water to grow any variety of nuts. Over the years, we have all become wiser and more efficient with our water usage. In fact, today, it takes about 33 percent less water to grow a pound of Nuts than it did prior to the 1990s. We’re always looking for ways to improve those numbers while continuing to focus on quality. So, when you break open that bag, you can thank farmers near and far for their efforts to be good stewards of this precious resource.

But back to the fun. While this month is all about celebrating the Dads of the world, we’d say the rest of the family couldn’t resist our primo-quality Nuts, either. Think about all the ways beyond straight snacking that the whole family can enjoy Nuts. Always great in salads, tossed onto green beans, as an energy-boosting anytime snack, in baking, as part of a satisfying breakfast…and so much more!

We’ve talked ‘em up, and now it’s time for you to reap the rewards of putting up with our rant on Nuts. This month, we’re offering you 10 percent off all of our Nuts. And while you’re stocking up, remember to grab extras for yourself. Father’s Day comes once a year, but Nuts are ideal for enjoying every day of the year! Happy saving and happy snacking, dear Bella Viva Orchards readers!
