Our Specialty Food Story

 Since 2004 Rey and Bobby Longhurst have produced and sold Sprouted Almonds nationwide. It all started when Bobby (Rey's wife spelled like a boy) had serious health problems. The doctors could not find the problem. She was enrolled in the resident Optimal Health Institute in San Diego for a two week stay to find out what was wrong with her health. One of the foods they fed her was Sprouted Almonds. This specialty food made Rey VERY CURIOUS INDEED! After months of research and product development Rey concluded that this was something the whole world needed to know about. Sprouted Almonds, LLC was born! Rey and Bobby rebranded the company in 2017 under the name Longhurst Farms to include additional sprouted products besides almonds. In 2019 they opened the Nut Factory Retail Store to share their sprouting secrets with the local community in Sheridan, Wyoming and surrounding areas.

Did You Know? Sprouting Has A Purpose!

       Nuts and Seeds have enzyme inhibitors in them. This is why almonds can remain stored for many years. To eat unsprouted almonds is to eat these enzyme inhibitors... which will inhibit the enzymes y-o-u need to digest your food! Sprouting Removes the Enzyme Inhibitors! Nutritionally, you get more "bang-for-your-buck"! Sprouting is one of the most fascinating natural phenomena. From this tiny appendage, a tree is born. It’s not surprising that there is exceptional nutritional value locked inside the kernel. Sprouting enlivens the enzymes that are dormant within. These enzymes activate when they come in contact with water, and the nuts are “awakened”. The potential growth for each nut is to become a tree, and when we eat Sprouted Almonds® our bodies receive this concentrated vital energy and nutrition. Even more important, sprouting neutralizes enzyme inhibitors present in the nut, allowing quicker and more complete digestion and assimilation of nutrients. Resveratrol – Anti Aging Factor Sprouted Almonds® Brand contains 1.4mg Resveratrol per serving (24 nuts). 1.4mg is equivalent to 3 glasses of Red Wine. Gluten Free! GMO Free! Additive Free!
