Why Rancho Vignola?

Rancho Vignola is a seasonal business that offers the freshest, new crop nuts, dried fruit, seeds, baking goods, and confections—we can do this because we receive our products directly from the fall harvest. Fresh-from-harvest guarantees the best of the new crop from growers that we know and trust.

Our extensive list of products has something for everyone—foodies, families, and folks who just like knowing where their food comes from. Our family, staff, growers, and customers are the heart of Rancho Vignola, and the reason we have been in business since 1980.

New Crop Guarantee

Rancho Vignola only buys products from the most recent harvest and we never warehouse our inventory from year to year. This allows us to provide you with the freshest product available anywhere.

No Food Waste

Any remaining inventory at the end of the year is donated to food banks and charitable organizations across Canada. Food not suitable for human consumption is donated to wildlife rehabilitation centres.

Fair Trade

Rancho Vignola is fully committed to fair trade principles and hiring practices. We are proud to support the farmers and processors we work with to help us bring to you the ‘Best of the New Crop’.

Seasonal Ordering

Rancho Vignola’s harvest season begins each year with our wholesale pre-ordering in September. Wholesale pre-orders are then shipped throughout November to customers across Canada. No minimum ordering begins on December 1st.

  • positive review  Received the maple almonds and antioxident trail mix for Christmas from my parents in Enderby. (We also snuck some of the chocolate almonds gifted to Dad.) Returned to Vancouver with our goodies only to devour the maple almonds in three days! Hoped to find them somewhere here, but upon reading the website see they are seasonal only. Hope the nut fair comes to Vancouver next year. The maple almonds were amazing! Must try!

    positive review  I wish there was a better rating than excellent. I just received my first order. My entire experience with this company was great. Everything is so fresh and tastes fantastic. I've never eaten better Medjool dates. I'm so happy someone recommended your company to me. I will be placing more orders in the future.

    positive review  Our family love Rancho Vignola products. It's such an excitement when the boxes all arrive in November. We open them and have even taken pictures to send to our friends back east. We are vegan and these nutrients are so valuable to our diet. I was just at a ladies get together and brought some hazel almonds and mulberries. They were asking me about RV. One friend said that they were so fresh and oily. I store them in the freezer so they stay perfect. Thank you for providing us with such nutrient dense food!!!

  • positive review  We LOVE Rancho Vignola! Wholesale Ordering is a breeze. The hardest part is simply deciding what you NEED, because you will WANT everything! The most fun is trying all those lovely little samples at the Harvest events, and catching up with friends. Rancho Vignola really is about community,

    positive review  I purchase every year before Christmas, both for baking and gifts. People love receiving the flavoured nuts, though it's hard to stay out of the bag and actually give them away! In the last couple of years I've also tried some of the items from the confections part of the catalogue, and they've also been big hits!

  • 5 star review  I started purchasing nuts and dried fruit from RV in 2002 through my friend's co-op in Coldstream, BC. When we moved away in 2007, I started my own RV co-op on Salt Spring Island, BC. We have about 20 members in our co-op and we reach the case price for most of our items. I wholeheartedly believe in the quality and ethical standards of RV. The organic selection is huge, and I also deeply appreciate the fair trade selection of sugar and chocolate - two foods that are extremely prone to exploitation of workers. We make sure to stock up for the year, and because the products are so fresh, we are able to enjoy everything we buy for months, and in some cases, for years. I am very grateful for the opportunity to support RV and recommend their products to everyone!

    positive review  I've been a RV fan since a friend introduced me a few years ago! My family has always been big consumers of nuts and dried fruit, and we have bought from a variety of sources (often bulk food stores), with mixed results. Any products I can buy from RV, I buy exclusively from them now. RV products are outstanding and I love the organic options. Most of the products I buy freeze well and last 1-2 years (although many don't make it until ordering time the following year because they get eaten!). My favorite products are the mini pecans and the box of 10 pre-packaged bags of trail mixes. The latter make great teacher and holiday gifts, as they arrive just in time for December.

  • positive review  We've been "nuts" about Rancho Vignola for nearly 20 years!! Each year, we purchase enough product online to qualify for free freight on our shipment. We do our own "mix-up" when the products arrive....we pour peanuts (no salt) + peanuts (with salt) + mixed nuts (no salt) + mixed nuts (with salt) out of their well-sealed bags into a giant stainless bowl, and then re-bag the custom-made mix. This is the happy sampling time 🙂 Yumm! These Rancho products are SO FRESH and tasty. Thanks, Rancho, for bringing a 'fresh' smile to our face every Fall 🙂

    positive review  A couple years ago, a friend told me about Rancho Vignola and I gave it a try. Up until then, I had never known what a truly fresh walnut tasted like! My family and I are hooked. We look forward to the annual browse through the online catalogue of delicious nuts and dried fruits. We are extremely grateful to have discovered this great company.

    positive review  Wow! For the freshest, tastiest nuts and dried fruits, Rancho Vignola can't be beaten! Friends who thought they didn't like walnuts have been converted since tasting the freshness and quality Rancho offers, and now order them annually.

    positive review  My family has been ordering from Rancho Vignola for the last three years and have never received anything but high quality products. Nuts and seeds are so fresh you never realized they could taste so good! Strongly recommend trying the organic cranberries, 70% chocolate, and Incan berries (once you've had those you never go back). Worth paying a couple extra bucks for sure for these goodies.
