Limerock Orchards Organic Walnuts

Limerock Walnut Orchards FamilyLimerock Orchards is a small, family owned walnut farm located in the hills of western Paso Robles. Each autumn our family hand harvests our exceptional walnuts to make gourmet walnut oil that is wonderfully aromatic and bursting with a delicate, toasty flavor. By carefully roasting the walnuts before pressing, their full flavor is preserved in every ounce along with healthy omega 3 fatty acids and natural antioxidants.

Hand Crafted Walnut Oil & Walnut Butter

Our unfiltered walnut oil is a gourmet chef’s secret weapon for salad dressings, sautéing, baking and dipping. Our walnut butter is rich, savory treat that is a great healthy snack anytime.

Our farm and orchards are nestled in the heart of Paso Robles wine country.

Their secret is the ages-old technique of dry farming, an irrigation-free method with smaller yields in exchange for a crop of undeniably flavorful walnuts – all grown with nothing but rain and sunshine.
