Get Wild!

ELF's Wild Amazon Rainforest Peanuts are a sustainable rainforest product, helping to protect an area with incredibly rich biodiversity.

Wild peanuts have survived undisturbed in the Amazon for thousands of years. This unique ancient variety is beautifully striped and boasts a rich flavor that beats mass-grown commercial peanuts.

Sustainably cultivated by seven indigenous Ashuar and Shuar communities, these peanuts help to preserve precious forest and ancient indigenous culture.

pristine & pure

Wild Jungle Peanuts are shade-grown in the pristine Ecuadorian rainforest. They are hand-harvested and carefully sun-dried in their shells on covered, elevated drying tables.

Because they're grown in their natural environment instead of on large-scale mono-crop farms, Wild Jungle Peanuts also naturally free of aflatoxin (a fungus that's a known irritant and allergen).

The partially-dried peanuts are flown out of the jungle on small aquatic airplanes and delivered to a pristine, organic certified processing facility in the nearest city, where they are shelled, cleaned and dried under stringent quality controls at VERIFIED RAW temperatures (under 118°).

Finally, we use a low-heat blender to grind the peanuts into a butter, adding a touch of pure organic peanut oil and Himalayan Sea Salt.

Visiting the Amazonian farms

Helping hands

Your purchase makes a real difference in the lives of 7 Indigenous communities and two million acres of old-growth rainforest. This sustainable agriculture project provides the Achuar and Shuar with a fair and uplifting opportunity to conserve precious rainforest while sustaining their culture and traditions.

The Achuar's territory is far from the pollution of modern civilization and remains one of the richest, most biodiverse areas in the entire Amazon.

Unfortunately, this territory has recently come under threat from huge oil companies. The Achuar have title to roughly two million acres of primary forest, and the oil companies are applying tremendous pressure to obtain the rights and force the Achuar from their native land.

doing our part

The good news is that the Ecuadorian government is standing behind the Achuar and their right to self-determination.

The government is especially pleased to see indigenous peoples creating unique agricultural value from their land. ELF’s wild harvested peanuts are a paradigm-shifting economic model that strengthens the value of the Achuar’s forest and creates an income source.

So purchasing Wild Jungle Peanuts helps support the Achuar in standing firm against Big Oil...and helps preserve the planet's precious rainforest.
