An avid sunflower seed enthusiast throughout his life, Chinook Seedery founder Mark craved a new kind of seeding experience. For years he had simply accepted the same old salt-ridden, artificial, uninspired flavors available in existing sunflower seed brands. Eating seeds was a part of his life, and there werenâ€™t any better alternatives. Or was there? Mark searched high and low for the best sunflower seeds out there, and he couldnâ€™t find a single flavor or brand that lived up to his lofty expectations. Sunflower seeds are so naturally healthy â€“ full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. Why was everyone messing with perfection? He set out to create the perfect seed. Mark craved a larger seed â€“ with an easily crackable shell and a crunchy, brittle kernel. Seeds with long-lasting flavor, without the salty burn. Something different.
