Kashi Nut Butter Bars, Chewy, Coconut Cashew Macaroon

New! Non GMO Project verified. nongmoproject.org. Transitional certified by QAI. Made with cashew butter. Gluten free. Richard Gemperle standing in his transitional almond orchard in central California. These bars are not organic. They're certified transitional, an initiative we helped create to support farmers transitioning their conventional farmland to organic. Why do they need support? Well, farmers have to go through a three-year transition period to be able to apply for USDA organic certification. That's three years of implementing organic practices on their land without a return on their investment immediately, so they're less motivated to make the change. So to source the almond butter in these delicious bars, we called our friend Richard - you're helping to support Richard and all the transitional farmers who ire nurturing a better tomorrow - who lives just north of us in Turlock, California. Richard is a second-generation almond fanner who believes that having healthy soil is better for the earth today and in the future. And when you buy these bars, you're helping to support Richard and all the transitional farmers who are nurturing a better tomorrow by moving organic food forward one acre at a time.
