*NOTE: The USDA allows pasteurized almonds to be labeled as “raw!
” We think pasteurization and mislabeling pasteurized almonds as “raw” should be a crime against both farmers and consumers. Read more here >
California organic almonds must now be pasteurized for retail sale. However, OPDC can legally sell un-heated, truly raw*, organic almonds directly to you from our “On Farm" store.
OUR OFFICIAL POLICY
- OPDC is happy to ship almonds for any person that physically walks into the OPDC farm store and purchases almonds.
- OPDC is happy to take payment over the phone if that order is picked up in person at the OPDC farm store.
- For all other remote phone orders, please contact Azure Standard for truly raw almonds and Azure will ship them to you.
- The USDA will not allow OPDC to ship almonds based on phone call orders. We are hopeful that a pending lawsuit will reverse this policy.
- OPDC almonds are still available from OPDC at farmers markets throughout CA.
