a sustainable socio-ecological project!
Because ANTA almonds are collected from ancient fields where a mixed variety of almond trees were grown because they believed this helped better propagation between trees. This results in different sized almonds all being processed by almond cracking and shelling machines made for one specific size.
ANTA almonds are:
- BIO certified
- hand-picked from ancient almond trees.
One of ANTAconcept Nature Conservation actions is to find and cultivate old almond varieties that have a unique aroma and require less water than those commonly grown, currently.
ANTA Project carries out a number of activities. (ex. ANTA Project 2019)
This is a project that supports small organic farmers on the Cycladic island KEA to promote endemic Greek almond varieties. In recent years these have increasingly been replaced by Californian ones, because they are getting bigger, but they need extra water and fertilisation. The almond trees on Kea are farmed without plowing, watering and spraying. These antique almond varieties are highly aromatic, there is no comparison to mass produced almonds, see for yourself!
We suggest that you pre-order as the annual harvest is low.
