What does organic mean?

The Department for Agriculture and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) states that:

‘Organic food is the product of a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilisers, pesticides; growth regulators and livestock feed additives. Irradiation and the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or products produced from or by GMOs are generally prohibited by organic legislation.

Organic agriculture is a systems approach to production that is working towards environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production. Instead, the agricultural systems rely on crop rotation, animal and plant manures, some hand weeding and biological pest control’.

What is the shelf life of your walnuts?

Whole walnuts in their shells generally have a longer shelf life compared to shelled walnuts because the shell provides protection from air and light, which can cause nuts to deteriorate more quickly. Here's a guideline for the shelf life of whole walnuts in their shells:

  • Room Temperature: Whole walnuts stored in their shells can last for about 6 months to 1 year when stored at room temperature in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and heat sources.

  • Refrigeration: If you want to extend their shelf life, you can refrigerate whole walnuts in their shells. They can typically last for up to 1 to 2 years when stored properly in the refrigerator in a breathable bag or container.

  • Freezing: For the longest-term storage, you can freeze whole walnuts in their shells. When stored in an airtight container or freezer bag, they can maintain their quality for up to 2 to 3 years or possibly longer.

It's important to note that while the shelf life of whole walnuts in their shells is longer than shelled walnuts, it's still essential to inspect them for any signs of mold, insect infestation, or rancidity before consuming them, regardless of the storage method. Proper packaging and protection from moisture are also key factors in preserving the freshness of whole walnuts in their shells.
