Pili Nut Farms is the producer of the World’s Finest Pili Nuts, and proud to be producing 100% all natural Pili Nut products that are delicious and nutritious.
Hello, my name is Rose Pasden. Together, my husband Greg and I are the founders of Pili Nut Farms. We only use organic procedures for growing our all natural Pili Nuts so that we can provide the highest quality Pili Nut products to our consumers.
The goal of Pili Nut Farms is to produce the most delicious, 100% all natural pili nuts. This means that we only grow our nuts organically and we don’t genetically modify our nuts, we don’t use commercial fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides or pesticides. Instead we use organic fertilizers, mountain spring waters, plenty of tropical sunshine so that our products are are all natural through sustainable farming.
About me, I grew up in what most people would consider a ‘Jungle’ in the Philippines. I am the granddaughter of the village medicine-man, and the daughter of a farmer. To me, it was natural, adventurous, and beautiful… and the only life I knew (chasing chickens and pigs, climbing trees, growing rice, coconuts, mango and the Pili Nuts).
Since our family grew up in a remote region in the Philippines, we didn’t have access to pesticides, herbicides, insecticides or commercial fertilizers. So everything we grew was organic. Also we learned first hand the benefits of eating organic foods and the healing properties of plants found in nature. There are so many benefits to eating healthy foods. (Greg teases me and says it’s my youthful appearance – I’m in the yellow shirt).
As I grew up, I had the strong desire to help people with healthy lifestyle, So I went to college, studied hard, joined professional organizations, and now my hard work has come to fruition. I became a nurse with a goal to help people, not just medically, but also with food and nutrition.
While working my way through nursing school, I met my husband, Greg Pasden. Greg is an American, a graduate from The Ohio State University, and a retired military pilot. Together we have our loving daughter Aprilynne Paris who keeps us entertained.
After we married, I took Greg into the jungles of Leyte to meet my family, to see the beauty of organic farming, and to see first hand the benefits of it. Immediately, Greg saw, realized and understood the benefits of having our own organic farm.
Shortly after our trip, Greg and I started our search for where we would have our farm. Eventually our search led us to Tablas Island. We chose Tablas Island for its ecological beauty, the strong support for organic agriculture, and because it’s a great place to raise our daughter.
Now we are proud Pili Nut Farmers growing the World’s finest organic Pili Nuts to help create a Stronger and Healthier you.
This is me with one of our newer trees at Pili Nut Farms on Tablas Island.
We hope you enjoy our pili nuts as much as we enjoy them.
