JEWELS UNDER THE KILT6325 Fifth Line Fergus, ON 519-362-1585
Customers go nuts for Jewels Under the Kilt - a line of locally grown walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts roasted with an addictive mixture of flavourings that range from chipotle to pumpkin pie. In the early days, Elizabeth Burrow grew all the nuts herself on her 95-acre farm, using sustainable practices such as shellfish-based fertilizer, strategic inter-planting and organic insecticidal soap. As the popularity of her snacks has grown, she has planted other nut varieties to expand her offerings. Burrow has also turned to other Ontario farms to supplement her nut supply, as well as provide maple syrup, peaches, apples, pumpkins and other flavourings.
Find Jewels Under The Kilt nuts at the Evergreen Brickworks Farmers Market, in Toronto on Saturdays. Their stall sells their award-winning nuts, alongside delicious nutswiches and nut puffs.
