Romanca, the owner, used her family estate to build a brand around the humble walnut. Ludus Naturae Kmetija Rečnik is an organic walnut grove and farm that specializes in walnut products. The walnut grove has been certified organic since 1999 and Romanca has been making and growing wonderful and unique products from then on.
The one product she is especially proud of is her Pumpkin and Walnut Oil Mix. She uses walnuts and pumpkins grown at her farm.
The walnuts are harvested every day during harvest. They are then meticulously dried for 3 days with a special cold drying process, shelled by hand, ground and then cold-pressed into oil. When the pumpkins are ripe and ready they are harvested, the seeds are separated and dried. The shells are removed, the seeds are ground, roasted and then pressed. The oil is mixed 40-60% to make a unique finishing oil that will blow you away on salads or even ice cream.
