chia seeds grown in the midwest USA
100% non-GMO and grown using sustainable production practices on family farms
Heartland holds the exclusive license to the only chia seed that can grow in the midwestern United States, and since 2011, we have been working to develop and expand the production of chia with farms across the U.S.
U.S. grown chia is truly sustainable and even a restorative crop that can help heal the land and environment!
Chia has much lower input needs compared to conventional crops as it needs less water, uses much less fertilizer, can be grown using no-till, and brings biodiversity to crop rotations, which breaks disease and insect cycles naturally without having to use pesticides.
Our chia has been through a natural "Kill Step" process to reduce the possibility of pathogens. Heartland Chia is low moisture to extend shelf life and prevent spoilage. This also means that it can be consumed straight from the bag with no further processing or cooking, making it ideal for use in smoothies and other liquid applications.
