    • Your 100% organic cocoa will be naturally processed so that it has a smoother taste, lighter color and more refined aroma than commercial-grade cocoa.
    • Because most of us only know chocolate that is packed with sugar, this organic cocoa is a taste revelation. Cocoa from Costa Rica has a distinctively chocolate flavor, with a floral bouquet.
    • Cacao, the fruit from which chocolate is made, is the ideal agricultural commodity for the rainforest because it depends on the rainforest canopy for its survival!
    • The Rent Mother Nature Fair Trade Cocoa Lease meets the highest standards for social and environmental responsibility. The farmers receive fair compensation to support their families and communities and incentives to work their land wisely, while you enjoy this delicious product and help protect the rainforest of Costa Rica.
    • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support sustainable agriculture).

Choose Baker’s cocoa if you don’t want any organic sugar or dry milk added.

 

Giving a friend the harvest from their own Fair Trade cocoa tree will help protect the Rainforest of Costa Rica & support a farmer’s cooperative. This 100% organic, naturally processed cocoa has a smoother taste, lighter color & more refined aroma than commercial-grade cocoa. Choose cocoa (hot chocolate) or, for the chef in your life, baker’s cocoa (no sugar or milk).

Tucked away on Washington State’s Pacific Coast are the cold, pure, pristine waters of Puget Sound’s bays. These protected inlets, with their constant, rich supply of plankton and shallow, warm water conditions, are a veritable “oyster heaven”, assuring you of pure, fresh, and delicious oysters, flown straight to your door for a true gourmet experience anytime.

The Pacific oyster’s pungent, ocean-y taste is why it is the most coveted oyster in the world.

The Oyster Lease yields 4-dozen three-year-old oysters that are delivered by air (recipes and shucking instructions are included). To heighten anticipation, gift recipients will receive a progress report (newsletter) informing them about conditions in the Northwest bays and the hard work involved in protecting this natural resource, as well as some practical advice on the preparation of oysters (and some impractical advice from Lewis Carroll).

The personalized lease documents include instructions about how your recipient can use our website to arrange the delivery of their oysters.

We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s oyster farms).

Sorry, oysters can’t be shipped to Hawaii or Alaska.

Experience the warmth, comfort, and durability of a natural wool blanket from the wool of a flock that includes your own Dorset sheep, a beloved member of a shepherd’s cooperative.

    • Sheep are first sheared in April (they get a second shearing if their fleece gets too long).
    • The pure virgin wool, nature’s premier fiber, is carefully washed -without the use of solvents, bleaches, moth-proofing or harsh chemicals- by skilled weavers.The wool is then carded, spun, woven, and napped into natural, custom-woven blankets. An heirloom that will be appreciated and enjoyed for generations.
    • Our three progress reports will keep your recipient up-to-date on the tender care of their sheep, connecting them to the land and the flock.
    • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s small family farms and craftsmen).

 

Treat a friend (or newlyweds) to the warmth and comfort of a natural, organic blanket made from their own sheep’s wool. After your gift recipient’s sheep is sheared the wool is rushed to the mill to be custom-woven into a pure, virgin wool blanket -made as nature intended with no compromise on quality, and without the use of any dyes or chemicals.

The perfectly natural way to stay warm.

The Bible and the Koran mention dates and date palms more frequently than any other fruit. 68 feet below sea level in the 110-degree heat of the California desert, a five-acre family farm grows organic dates as in Biblical times – without any artificial chemicals, sprays, fumigants, or sulfur, and without steaming, hydrating or using preservatives.

Large, sweet and meaty, the Medjool date is a three or four bite dessert all by itself! This farm’s Medjool dates won first prize last year as the finest quality organic date grown in North America. There is no comparison to the chemically treated, steamed, water-added dates found in supermarkets.

Progress Reports will relate exotic lore & tradition as the dates progress from the “Kimri” stage through “Rutab” and harvest. They will be rushed to your recipient(s) in October.

We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s small family farms).

Treat a friend to certified organic medjool dates from their own date palm tree on a small California farm. These dates are grown as in Biblical times – without using any chemicals, sulfur or artificial hydration. Each plump and mouth-watering date is a 3 or 4 bite dessert all by itself!

L101_Maple_3_200

Rent a 2020 Maple Tree!

4.80 out of 5 based on 5 customer ratings

A gift of a Sugar Maple Lease, which provides 100% natural organic maple syrup, will delight your recipients all year long!

    • First comes the handsome, personalized lease document. This reproduction of an 1890 U.S. Treasury “License for Sugar Producer” is printed on parchment and embossed with a gold seal.
    • Then, three lively newsletters will keep lessees updated on the activities of the sugaring crew as it snowshoes its way about the sugarbush. Maple sap is collected by connecting trees with environmentally benign tubing so that the clear, cold sap flows directly to the sugar house. In which – without using any chemical anti-foaming agents – we boil it down using a blazing wood fire. No petroleum fumes pollute Mother Nature’s mountain air.
    • Transforming raw sap to syrup takes dedication, snowy walks, muscle, fire and patience. It’s a slow process to boil down 40 plus gallons of sap into one gallon of pure wood-fired syrup. Talk about reducing a sauce!
    • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support America’s family farms).

 

 

A Sugar Maple Tree Lease is a delightfully different gift for anyone on your gift-giving list. Their tree produces delicious 100% natural and organic maple syrup made using the most environmentally-safe methods -no formaldehyde pellets in our trees, no anti-foaming chemicals in our boiling vat, and no petroleum fumes in our mountain air.
