Spices and nuts_edited.jpg

Sources

ReTreat products are from trustable sources, fair trade, organic, and local whenever possible. Email me with questions.

All nuts are directly sourced from farms and are domestic. Hazelnuts and walnuts are from Oregon. Pecans from Missouri. Almonds from California. Pistachios from Georgia.

All dried fruits are domestic. Blueberries and elderberries are from Oregon. Cherries, cranberries, plums, figs are from a small farm in Georgia. The drying process happens on the same farm. No sugars of any kind are added to these dried fruits.

Fresh fruits are always sourced from Oregon or Washington. In season, I use fresh harvest. In the winter, I use frozen berries (that were frozen in season) These are fruits I use in my truffles.

All edible dried flowers are local and sourced from small growers in Oregon or Washington.

Cacao: Final products only have single source cacao, it depends on the product where the cacao is from.

Some farms do not grow through the organic certification process, because of the cost. The ingredients I use are sustainably grown without chemicals, although not all are organic certified.
