Our Hickory Nuts and Black Walnuts are cracked using hard-shell nutcrackers. One by one, the shells are cracked and the nut meats are picked by hand. The job is tedious, but the taste is worth it. Hickory nuts are proclaimed by some including the Native Nuts staff - 'the best tasting nut in the world'. Black Walnuts are equally as delicious. Grab a pound of nutmeats or enjoy delicious raw almonds, English walnut halves, Macadamia Nuts and more of our nuts 'out of the shell'.
