They’re one of nature’s greatest superfoods and a must-have in every pantry. So where do the walnuts grow? PureNature’s business manager headed to a walnut farm in
La Rioja province,
Argentina to find out…
Nuts, Nuts, Everywhere: The vast plains of the industrial walnut farm in Argentina.
Let’s Go: Walnut trees ready for harvest.
First Pick: Raw nuts fresh from the tree.
Loaded Up: The walnuts are gathered into huge bins to be sorted.
Air Time: After picking, the walnuts are laid out in the sun to dry.
Nutting It Out: Workers process the nuts by hand.
Fresh Flesh: Fresh walnuts, we’re told, are absolutely delicious. These ones had a rich, creamy taste – quite unlike what you’ll find in your average supermarket!
Ship Out: The freshly-packed walnuts ready for global export. And that’s it – in a nutshell!
