Organic Walnuts and Walnut Oil

Walnuts & Walnut Butter

CABountifulLimerock Orchards is a small, family owned walnut farm located in the hills of western Paso Robles. Each autumn our family hand harvests our exceptional walnuts to make gourmet walnut oil that is wonderfully aromatic and bursting with a delicate, toasty flavor. By carefully roasting the walnuts before pressing, their full flavor is preserved in every ounce along with healthy omega 3 fatty acids and natural antioxidants. Our walnut oil is a gourmet chef’s secret weapon for salad dressings, sautéing, baking and dipping. Our walnut butter is rich, savory treat that is a great healthy snack anytime.

Our farm and orchards are nestled in the heart of Paso Robles wine country. Named for the orchard’s rich, limestone-like soil, our trees have been quietly producing extraordinarily delicious walnuts for more than 40 years. Their secret is the ages-old technique of dry farming, an irrigation-free method with smaller yields in exchange for a crop of undeniably flavorful walnuts – all grown with nothing but rain and sunshine.

Rattlesnakes, deer, and wild pigs are known to cut paths through the farm’s thick, adobe topsoil. On this day, the orchard […]
