If it transports you to an unexpected and wonderful place, we will be happy.

Our Founder

I’ve long enjoyed scouring the world looking for the best seeds, nuts, fruits, and spices. Here’s a picture of me in Marrakesh, Morocco in 2012, in search of new natural snacks. I created South 40 Snacks because I’m passionate about our particular varietal of Israeli-grown, giant-sized sunflower seeds. I first had them as a kid living in Israel and became hopelessly addicted. But back in the US, for decades and decades, I just couldn’t find another sunflower seed that compared in size, quality, snap, ease of crack, and delicious nutty flavor.
In 2018, with a background in entrepreneurship in the snack food business, I decided to go for it and launched the company. It’s an amazing journey that’s just beginning, and I’m thrilled so many people are now becoming obsessed with the world’s best sunflower seeds.

Love these seeds, they’re by far the best I’ve ever had.

THE BEST SEEDS ON THE MARKET

TRIED EM ALL SO SAYS THE LONGEST TOURING MOTORCYCLE JUMPER

I HAVE A VERY PICKY HUSBAND....and if His father was still alive, the great Ernie Nevers Hall of Famer football player, he would have loved these too.Gene has tried them all for many years. Even when you are out and he has to buy others, as SOON as he gets YOURS back he gives away all the others. He convinced that Evel Knievel would have loved them too! Here is Gene at Evel's funeral. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_rNtxOg9mg&t=1s
