Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are your products really grown and made on American soil?
A: Yes! All of our products are sourced directly from farmers we know and work with regularly.
Q: How do you use squash seed oil? Can I cook with it?
A: Butternut squash seed oil is very versatile, with a high smoke point similar to peanut oil but also works well as a drizzling oil. It has a slightly nutty, buttery taste that goes well on roasted squash, sauteed carrots or broccoli. Also great drizzled in squash or pea soup, or on the grill with grilled peppers, zucchini. Our pumpkin seed oil is much more delicate, with a lower smoke point, so we recommend using the pumpkin seed oil as a finishing oil over vegetables or soups after cooking is complete.
Q: I am allergic to nuts. Are your snacks allergen free?
A: Our facility is completely free of soy, gluten, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, and dairy. For those with an allium sensitivity, we do use garlic powder in our chili butternut pepitas.
Q: How long will the oil last in my cupboard?
A: Freshly pressed oil is like fresh beer or bread, as the flavor is optimal right after bottling. We make our oils in small batches to maximize freshness. We recommend you use your oil within one or two months of opening, after this period the oil does not spoil but will gradually lose flavor. If you do not plan on using your oil in this timeframe, keep it in the refrigerator to extend shelf life, though the oil may become cloudy as it cools.
Q: Is your packaging recyclable?
A: We are working with our packaging supplier to develop a new fully recyclable pouch for our pepitas, but at this time the pouches cannot be recycled. However, the packing peanuts that arrive with your order are compostable.
