Our Story

The Almond Garten was founded in 1988. In 2010 Dan McLean, took over the The Almond Garten.

The Almond Garten makes and sells almonds, pecans and cashews that are coated with a glaze of cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and water then roasted in our authentic German copper kettles. This creates a delicious treat and mouth watering aroma that will attract your attention.

You can find our booth or outdoor trailer throughout the year at various festivals, craft shows, Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, In, and fairs. See our calendar to see where we will be. We are also at Glenbrook Mall in Fort Wayne during select times throughout the year and the Christmas season. A warm snack pack is a great treat as you are wondering through an event. Or take home a larger size in one of our authentic German cones. Mail orders are always welcome.

During the special seasons, we also sell specialty items such as chocolate covered nuts. We have tins and unique packages that make any of our nuts a great gift idea for those “hard to buy for” people. Special pricing is available for large orders — think of us for your company’s Christmas gifts.
