Jewels Under The Kilt
Canada’s number one artisan nut farmer located in beautiful Ontario.
Our Story – Lis and her husband Mitch
In 2010 my husband and I moved to a 90-acre farm in Fergus, Ontario to begin pursuing our lifelong dream of leading a rural life. We chose the farm because it had frogs, it meant freedom and youth and images of putting our feet in the water searching for tadpoles. We got so excited about nature and space that another dream was created: being environmentally conscious farmers.
We were going to plant 5 nut trees for the family, but then we thought, why 5? So, we planted 100. The nuts tasted great. We loved living off the land. We gave them to our friends and neighbours, and for 2 years I would farm, cook and create recipes with our homegrown nuts. It was during this time that I developed my patent-pending roasting process and created our maple roasted nut recipes. People loved them. Jewels Under the Kilt was born.
Legacy for Jesse: We have shared and brought our family together, our community together and even our country. Our daughter Jessie, who has Upsyndrome will have this as our legacy. From our family to yours, thanks for helping us pursue our dreams!
Foods: Raw walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans & roasted options in an assortment of artisan flavours, nut butters, and heritage corn.
