Fifty years ago, our grandparents planted their ﬁrst walnut trees in sunny, bountiful northern California. Five decades later, we are still passionate about all things walnuts. Walnuts are nutritious little nuts and contain vitamins and minerals. But unlike other nuts, walnuts are also a good source of plant-based ALA omega-3 fatty acid, which has health supporting beneﬁts. You can only imagine our delight when we discovered our two favorite things coming together–walnuts and indulgence.
While there's nothing wrong with straight-from-the-jar, our walnut butters are also a great addition to some of your favorite recipes!

I have an ______ allergy. What other nuts are processed in our facility?
We are a peanut-free facility, but we currently process most tree nuts at various times (walnuts, almonds & pistachios). The facility undergoes a thorough cleaning between each processing to ensure there is no cross-contamination. However, if you have a severe allergy, we cannot guarantee a zero percent risk.
Why are there sugars in your product?
We use pure cane sugar to take away the little bit of bite that is left from the walnut. This ensures you have a great taste in your mouth, before, during, and after indulging. The amount of sugar is minimal compared to other nut butters in the market.
Are your products gluten and grain-free?
Yes, all Wellnut Farms products are gluten and grain free!
