Seeds and seed butters are an excellent source of nutrients, and provide an nut-free alternative to nut butters. We offer a variety of nutrient-dense, raw and sprouted seeds, including our own Awakened™ pumpkin seeds, grown right here in Oregon. In 2003, owners Julie and Charlie Tilt realized the majority of pumpkin seeds available in the United States are grown in China, and saw a great opportunity to bring pumpkin seed production home to the Willamette Valley. Working with farms in Oregon, Hummingbird began pumpkin seed trials that year and, in 2009, the Tilts traveled to Styria, Austria to research cultivation of Gleisdorfer pumpkins—a hulless variety grown in that region. Today, Hummingbird contracts with Oregon farmers to grow Organic Stryian pumpkin seeds and are proud to also offer our Good Food Award™ winning Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil.
