They write:

Tierra Farm is a small, privately-owned, certified organic producer and roasting company in upstate New York. We maintain a diversified organic vegetable farm in the Finger Lakes region of New York state, but specialize in nut and seed roasting and dried fruits. At Tierra Farm, we strive for A+ quality in all of our products.

As true believers in organic foods as a way to nurture the land and the body, we only handle and sell certified organic products -- and we make no exceptions! All of our roasting, mixing and flavoring is conducted in-house, at our certified organic, peanut-free roasting and processing facility.

The nut, seed and dried fruit portion of the business was originally an attempt to create a source of income for the winter. That winter job has become a thriving year-around business, thanks to our tasty product selection and a reliable and energetic staff with an eye for quality.
