Our Monukka Raisins are from the pristine mountainous Hunza region of Pakistan. Grown 6,000 - 9,000 feet above sea level, they are irrigated by mineral-rich glacial melt waters from high altitudes. Ancient organic farming methods insure the preservation of the 2 foot thick top soil saturated with life that infuses each fruit. The raisins are allowed to attain full maturity, ripeness, and flavor before picking, ensuring they are especially nutrient-dense. After being hand picked at the peak of life, they are sun-dried in clean mountain air. These treasured raisins are an exquisite raw food that will please your pallet, your conscience, and your body.
