  • Heartland Nuts and More

    Valparaiso, NE

    HEARTLAND’S black walnuts are the result of expert scientific research, experimentation and grafting. Most producers let the nut fall off the tree and allow the shell to turn black before harvesting and shelling. This practice turns the nutmeat a darker color and often results in a bitter taste. HEARTLAND harvests the nuts at just the right time while still on the tree. Then we immediately hull, wash and dry them to retain that mild but rich natural walnut flavor.
 Our's produce larger nut meats.

    At HEARTLAND NUTS ‘N MORE we use only the finest improved varieties of grafted nuts. These varieties and specialized handling procedures result in a delicious and larger nutmeat. The nuts are harvested at their peak and carefully processed to give you a mild flavored, superior black walnut. This results in a walnut that has 35% meat, and is sweeter and lighter tasting than traditionally grown walnuts.

  • George Paul Vinegary

    Cody, NE

    George Paul Vinegar is the culmination of nearly a decade of hard work, patience, and perseverance by the Johnson family - George and Karen and their three children Eric, Adam, and Emily.  They wanted their vinegar operation to be as sustainable and energy-efficient as possible, so they embraced strawbale construction. Primarily designed by Emily and built by their family, friends, and neighbors, it is beautiful. They broke ground in May of 2007. The passive solar design and thick bale walls keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The vaulted ceiling in the processing room and stucco finish make it a truly warm and pleasant place to work. Beginning in 2008, their acetobacter cultures started their slow work of turning wines into vinegar. Their first bottled vinegars made with 100% Nebraska fruit were available at our Open House in October 2009.

  • Blue Valley Aquaculture

    Sutton, NE

    Blue Valley Aquaculture (BVA) is a family-owned business established in 1999. The farmstead was purchased with the dream of raising fish. Blue Valley sits atop the eastern portion of the Ogallala Aquifer. It provides some of the cleanest water available and is the source of the clear, cold water we use at Blue Valley. They make wise use of this valuable natural resource by raising three different crops. The water first passes through a series of raceways at its natural 52 degrees, perfect for raising Donaldson Steelhead variety. The water then flows outside where it is used in pond culture systems to raise Yellow Perch, Largemouth Bass and Hybrid Bluegill. Any excess water is also used to irrigate the cropland surrounding our farm. At Blue Valley, they believe in giving back to the land that supports them.

  • TD Niche Pork

  • Dakota Harvest Farm

    Jefferson, SD

    Dakota Harvest Farm is located in very extreme South Dakota, a few miles away from both Iowa and Nebraska. Dakota Harvest Farm raises Dorper lambs in a natural environment. Dorpers are a “hair” sheep rather than wool breed and are specially developed for the quality of their meat.

    All of our lambs are born and raised naturally with their mothers on our pastures so we can guarantee that they’re healthy. They spend their time on pastures getting plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and clean water as they roam. In the winter months, they are fed alfalfa hay, also grown on our farm, to provide them with optimum nutrition and health. In turn, they produce a lean, healthy, nutrient dense and protein rich meat.

    We don’t administer growth hormones or antibiotics. We do not feed any animal byproducts. We do not apply artificial fertilizers or chemicals on our pastures.
