NewTree Ranch, the acclaimed luxury, plant-based retreat nestled in the Pacific Redwood Forest just ten minutes from downtown Healdsburg, is pleased to announce their first-ever packaged good, Energetic Sprouted Buckwheat Granola. The nutrient-dense granola is organic, vegan, raw, and gluten-free, demonstrating the ranch’s commitment to whole foods and plant-based living. Available for purchase through NewTree Ranch’s website and the Oakland-based grocery delivery service, Good Eggs, the Energetic Sprouted Buckwheat Granola provides foodies with a nourishing start to their day, while honoring the environment and its natural bounty.
“At NewTree Ranch, we believe in a spiritual, ethical and ecological approach to living,” said Ed Newell, founder of NewTree Ranch. “From the plants and trees across the property, to the bugs and worms in our garden, the animals, and of course, people living at the ranch, we are all deeply interconnected and strive to live harmoniously amongst one another. With our new granola, we want to create something with earth’s most whole and organic ingredients. We believe that food is medicine for the body, and through natural ingredients, we can finally begin to heal.”
Produced by the culinary team at NewTree Ranch, the Energetic Sprouted Buckwheat Granola is created through ethical and sustainable practices. The ranch itself embodies sustainability, with the ability to provide its own power sources, water, and food from its biodynamic garden. By practicing closed loop agriculture, recycling nutrients and organic matter back into the soil they originally grew in, NewTree Ranch preserves the nutrients and carbon levels within its soil and allows farming to be carried out on a sustainable basis. The absence of chemical use ensures that no toxins are released into the ranch’s soil or environment, with all soil and water consistently tested to guarantee zero pollution. Through this practice, the ranch confirms the integrity of the produce they grow.
The Energetic Sprouted Buckwheat Granola is made with soaked and sprouted raw buckwheat groats and sunflower seeds, providing ample sources of protein, fiber, antioxidants, and healthy fats. Following the creation of the base, the grains are then combined with a select assortment of superfoods, including raisins, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, golden berries, and coconut, to provide well-balanced nutrition and energy. Once all the ingredients are combined, the granola is carefully baked at temperatures below 125˚F to ensure nutrients and natural enzymes are not lost and the highest quality product is delivered to customers.
NewTree Ranch’s Organic Sprouted Buckwheat Granola can be purchased on the ranch’s website or through Good Eggs Organic Grocery Delivery service. All profits from the granola will go back to preserving the land at NewTree Ranch.
