Harvested since the beginning of time and said to represent knowledge, figs may be the third most sacred tree cultivated by the ancient Hellenes, after the olive tree and grape vine. According to Herodotus, the main reason for Xerxes invasion of Ancient Greece was in order to secure access to fresh Figs.
So close your eyes. Take a bite. And let the velvety taste and texture of these Organic Semi Dried Figs take you to a place of snack-driven desire, of fruitful passion, of wildly permissible indulgence.
These moist and delicious figs have hints of honey, jam with a subtle nuttiness from the seeds. Looking exquisite, their naturally occurring sugars emerge during the drying process. It is said that the fig is the oldest fruit domesticated by man and a symbol of will power and personal wealth, as this tree can grow in even the most arid conditions and in soil with little to no nutrients. There’s really nothing quite like them. So congrats, nature. You really nailed it on this one.
Our figs are cultivated using a biodynamic method of cultivation that follows principles of ecological, social and economic sustainability with no chemicals or pesticides.
Our specialized drying process uses no additives or preservatives, and maintains a much higher percentage of moisture than your typical dried figs, thus preserving much more of their natural goodness. They are an excellent source of dietary fibre, antioxidants, and other nutrients, that’s why alpinists, mountaineers and others often bring them along for the immediate energy boost they provide.
