About Hemp Seeds/Hearts
A group of kiwi farmers cultivates hemp amongst the rolling hills of Manawatu-Whanganui. Every year, the whole hemp seed is cleaned and graded after it is harvested. It is only the highest-quality hemp seeds that are de-hulled, which involves cracking and removing the outer shell. Among the many ways to retrieve hemp hearts, impact hulling is our favorite. Impact hulling involves gently rubbing the seed against a hard surface until it cracks. The result is hemp hearts. Unrefined raw products are nothing more or less than beautiful. Hemp hearts are a wonderful natural food. Hemp hearts (de-hulled hemp seeds) are a good source of Omega-3 ; Omega-6, as well as protein.
