Nutty Montanan started out in the Spring of 2009 after the economic crash of 2008. While doing the Cowboy Marketplace event during the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, it became clear that my business path over 20 years must change. The show was 10 days long and we should have doing $10,000 to $15,000 a day in sales. At the end of the show, we cleared $3,800. Not enough to cover costs. Instead of moping around, I decided to walk the show and see what businesses were doing well in a horrible economy…… Here’s what I found. Mini Donuts and Roasted Nuts. So upon my return to Montana, I bought a used mini donut machine. A few months later, I bought a Nut Roaster.
We went along for the summer of 2009, making donuts and Cinnamon Roasted Nuts at Farmer’s Markets and seeing some success. As our furniture store crumbled and went out of business, the concession managed to pay the bills. I figured out quickly that while mini donuts were profitable, they were a huge pain in the butt. So I sold that machine and focused on nuts.
Now 11 years have passed and we do far more than Cinnamon Roasted Nuts. We have developed numerous recipes and our nuts have been sold around the world. They have been enjoyed on aircraft carriers and in War Zones.
About 3 years ago we added a premium popcorn to our line– again numerous flavors of our own proprietary recipes. We think it’s the best in the world and many agree.
All we ask is that you give our awesome product a try!
And please let us know what you think!
All of our artisan small batch roasted nuts are made with only the finest ingredients. We don’t follow the rules, we make them when it comes to roasting nuts. There is nothing fake in our product. We use only real premium Vanilla in all of our recipes. When we use huckleberries, they are picked in the mountains of Montana.
Give a sack or three a try. I’m sure that you will see why people chase us down all over Montana to get these delicious gems!
