Where do you deliver?

We began offering home delivery as a response to Covid-19. Because we are a small business with only 3 full time employees, at this time we can only manage limited delivery routes. The zip codes to which we currently deliver are listed below. If your zip code is not listed, but you would like us to deliver to your house please get in touch with us, if possible we will add your area to our delivery route. Bonus points if you can get some of your neighbors to place orders as well!

Shipping & Freshness

Can you ship your products?

To ensure that our goods arrive with you in the best condition and with the same freshness in which they were harvested, we will only ship our dry goods. With the exception of our shelled pecans, which we only ship in the winter months.

Partners

We are seasonally able to offer you produce from our trusted network of farmers, growers, and artisans. Currently we are offering fresh flowers from The Flower Garden, located in St. Anne, IL. Navigate to the "Flowers" page via the site menu to view the weekly offering from The Flower Garden

About Us

We are Certified Naturally Grown and gluten free.

What is the difference between organic and naturally grown?

The rules are exactly the same. Organic certification is a for profit based system on the part of the certifying agency. Naturally Grown is a totally nonprofit, peer based inspection system that allows for greater community and collaboration between growers.

Gluten Free:

We are very careful about saying gluten free at Three Sisters, because we do process oats, and they have gluten, but it is a bit different than the gluten found in wheat.  

Are we absolutely gluten free?  The short answer is no.  

Do we have a great deal of return gluten free customers that have come to trust our products as free from the type of gluten that will make them sick?  Yes.  

I will not guarantee it, and if the problem is severe, I will recommend against purchasing our oats specifically, but many of our customers are gluten sensitive and experience no undesirable effects from consuming our products.
