"It all started with a dream and a vision, to grow the best organic almonds we possibly can."
Yunis organic almonds are grown on small family owned farms in the nutrient rich, naturally fertile soils of the Northern Adelaide Plains, Sunraysia and Riverland regions of Australia. We have the ideal Mediterranean climate essential for almond production.
We are certified by Australian Certified Organic and also IFOAM Certified.
We do not use synthetic chemical pest control products or chemical fertilizers and no genetically modified products are used at any time.
Growing up on the family almond farm of my Greek immigrant parents, food quality was always a high priority. We believe that food is the fuel of life. Without the right fuel, your body, mind and spirit can’t function to its full potential. Meal time is sacred so we try to eat the very best food.
In 2003 we decided to buy our own almond farm and adopt the Organic Certified growing methods converged with modern technology and as of 2006 we had reached fully certified organic status, to grow what we believe are some of the best almonds in the world!
In 2012 we expanded operations and adopted the name Yunis, which is Greek for John.
Goodness that comes right from the soil
Soil health is paramount to our growing methods. Vibrant soil micro biology fixes nitrogen in its purest form, from the atmosphere and not from nitrate fertilizers which are used heavily in conventional chemical farming. This helps the trees produce almonds that are rich in proteins and are mineral balanced. The result is a flavour that is true to that variety of almond and resonates with environment they were grown in.
Good for you
Organic almonds are renowned for their health benefits which include building muscle, reducing LDL cholesterol, and providing essential vitamin/mineral needs. Several studies have also concluded that Almonds contribute to positive heart health, weight loss and detoxification of the body.
Soil fertility is improved by encouraging soil microbes and earthworms, which unlock insoluble minerals from rock and old plant tissue in the soil making them available to the trees in a balanced form. This enriched, drought resistant soil is also less prone to erosion and reduces ground water pollution.
