Our mantra is: People. Planet. Animals. To that end we provide healthy, great tasting, whole food snacks that minimize our environmental footprint.

Healthy People.

Providing healthy snack options focused on real food and maximum nutrition

Life is busy. Eating healthy can be a challenge. When you’re hangry it’s easy to turn to chips, crackers, a processed food bar, or anything you can get your hands on. Gather Nuts aims to interrupt this cycle by providing scrumptious, heathy, whole food snack options packed with nutrition. Nuts and seeds are filled with nutrients, healthy fats, fiber, protein, and antioxidants. The nutritional components of our products help to protect against cancer and heart disease, and antioxidants fight free radicals which can lead to premature aging. But we don’t stop there….

Our nuts and seeds are soaked in saltwater to increase nutrient availability and absorption, then slow roasted to protect naturally occurring healthy fats. Our products are organically sourced, fair trade, gluten free, and plant-based. And yes, love is one of our ingredients.

We know you have a lot to do in this world, and not a lot of time, so first and foremost we are here to make healthy convenient.

Save the Planet. 

Doing the least amount of harm while aiming to create sustainable solutions

Climate change is undeniable, and the food industry is a major contributor – from the way we produce our food to the packaging we use for consumer goods. While the problem reaches far beyond the food industry, as a food company we want to do the least amount of harm to the planet. Our packaging is eco-friendly and biodegradable. Our products are organic to ensure we’re not contributing to the use of pesticides that are negatively impact our soil. We work with wholesalers that share our values and source locally whenever possible.

Our products also help to support plant-based eating, which has the potential to greatly reduce the effects of climate change. One-fifth of greenhouse gas emissions are caused by meat production and animal agriculture is a leading cause of deforestation. Shifting away from a meat-centric diet has been shown to have positive effects on climate change.

We Love Animals.

Helping to reduce dependency on factory farming and supporting farm sanctuaries

Modern times have strayed from traditional farming practices to ones that keep animals confined in cramped spaces, unable to roam pastures, and often times never see the outdoors. We’re softies and factory farming breaks our hearts.

Our tasty snacks are always plant-based and will fully satisfy your hunger. They will also make your heart happy in more ways than one. Getting your protein from nuts rather than meat can reduce your risk of heart attack two-fold – and in choosing Gather Nuts you’ll know animals were never harmed in the process.

We love the work of farm sanctuaries, and lucky for us, we have one right here in Central Oregon! Farm sanctuaries are a place where farm animals who have endured the sadness of factory farming are offered shelter and protection to live out their lives. We support Harmony Farm Sanctuary, located in Sisters, OR, and we share their values of kindness, compassion and empathy.
