Customers go nuts for Jewels Under the Kilt - a line of locally grown walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts roasted with an addictive mixture of flavourings that range from chipotle to pumpkin pie. In the early days, Elizabeth Burrow grew all the nuts herself on her 95-acre farm, using sustainable practices such as shellfish-based fertilizer, strategic inter-planting and organic insecticidal soap. As the popularity of her snacks has grown, she has planted other nut varieties to expand her offerings.
