NEW: Organic, raw, *locally grown* almonds!

No, your eyes do not deceive you. Barbee Orchards in Washington's sunny Yakima Valley has released its first commercial crop of locally grown, certified organic, raw almonds. Find them in 1-pound bags bearing the PCC label (while supplies last!) at your local PCC.

Almonds still in their husks in the Yakima grove.

These Butte variety almonds are a new foray for the Barbee family, which  established its orchards in the 1920s for cherries, pears and apples. This limited harvest is the first from almond trees planted several years ago.

As most commercial almonds are grown in California (and, required to be pasteurized there), PCC is thrilled to offer a locally grown, raw option. Better snag a bag while you can: when they're gone, they're gone!

Expected in stores for 2012?

I missed these last year! Do you know when we might expect to see them in stores again for 2012?

RE: Expected in stores for 2012?


Their arrival is imminent, likely sometime next week.

Are these almonds whole natural, "RAW", UNPASTEURIZED? How much are they per pound?

RE: Almonds

Hello Christine,

These almonds raw and unpasteurized. They are a small crop and Washington grown.

We don't have these almonds in the stores at this time. They typically arrive in the spring and sell out within a couple months.

Hope this helps!
