Snacking Your Way to Better Health
Great article on the health benefits of nuts today on nytimes.com:
"... pistachios are rich in resveratrol, which is being investigated for possible anti-aging effects. Pistachios are also rich in arginine, which gives rise to nitric oxide, a substance that improves blood flow and can help counter erectile dysfunction." Read On
Martha Stewart Living Magazine LOVES our pistachios! In the June 2013 issue, the magazine published a wonderful article about one of the chefs who loves our pistachios, too—Jeff Cerciello from Farmshop. Jeff visited his favorite foodie farms in California, including Santa Barbara Pistachios! Thank you, Jeff (and Martha!) for your much-appreciated appreciation of our pistachios.
In appreciation of your support, when you order 8 or more 12oz bags of our Organic In-Shell Pistachios, Organic Kernels or Pistachio Berry Mix, we'll include a "thank you gift"—one of our new canvas tote bags (a $10.00 value)!
NEW! If you are a mobile shopper, we've just simplified our mobile website to make ordering your favorite pistachios even easier on your smartphone! And you can find us on Facebook, too.
Remembering our folks in uniform overseas...
Let us help you ship to an APO in a USPS flat rate box. You can fill it up with up to 14 of our 12oz bags or 3 "pillows". The wife of a soldier deployed in Afghanistan just wrote to tell us:
"These gifts mean more to our troops than you know." We'd like to send a special thank you to Brown & Reich, a local company for their continued generosity to send a little bit of home to our soldiers overseas.
Our Onion Garlic Roast Organic Pistachios recently topped the list of Cooking Light Magazine's picks for great Holiday Party Appetizers.
We were delighted by the article "It's Raining Pistachios in Cuyama," written by Nancy Oster for Edible Santa Barbara Magazine for their Fall 2011 issue. The kind folks at Edible have given us permission to post the article here. You can read all about how we grow and process our pistachios. plus see photos of our farm, our trees, our store and (a very focused) Tristan Zannon. (Just click on the cover image at left or click here to download a pdf of the full article.)
Since our first harvest in 1995, and our first Organic crop certified by CCOF in 2007, Santa Barbara Pistachios has produced the highest quality all natural pistachios available. That means we do thing differently from other pistachio purveyors:
- We only sell what we grow;
- We brine our pistachios with wholesome Organic, Kosher-Certified ingredients instead of spraying on the flavor;
- We hot air dry, rather than flame roast, our pistachios at a low temperature to retain their natural buttery flavor and nutritional value;
- We hand sort and pack daily to make sure they are farm fresh when you receive them.
And that's how we always do it. We hope you taste and enjoy the difference.
P.S. We continue to sell to you and your friends online, send pistachios all the way to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and at stands in local Farmers markets.
