The US (BLM or USFS) generally offers pine nuts at .25 cents per pound, add labor and shelling, the American Pine Nut becomes worth $30 - $40.00 per pound. It takes 2 lbs of in shell pine nuts to make one pound of shell pine nuts, so pine nut prices of $.50 lb with the going labor rate of $1.50 lb to harvesters. The raw material costs to produce shelled American pine nuts runs $3.50 plus labor and processing equiptment. (and not THAT much labor).We wanted to create a machine that would allow a lot of people to engage in pine nut processing and a machine which would allow 5 star kitchens, coops, and food producers the alternative of freshly shelling pine nuts for their kitchems. The cost of inshell pine nuts runs on a wholesale level runs $9.00 - $12.00 per pound. Even with the shell loss, it is still a lot better pricing than $30.00 - $40.00 per pound, plus the food quality cannot be matched.
