Meet La Rue Weiland from La Spice – The Walnut Company

Please tell us about yourself: 
Hi there, my name is La Rue and I am the owner of La Spice – The Walnut Company. My favorite thing is being in the kitchen. I love the smells of cooking. I also enjoy spending time outdoors, love camping, hiking and long walks with my beagles. I love flowers. I have a beautiful field of sunflowers in the summer time. I have been a California girl all my life, but two years ago, I moved to Oregon.  I adore anything that is sparkly and that smells good!! Oh and I love everything about La Spice Nuts.

How long have you been in business?
La Spice was started after becoming unemployed in 2009.

Please describe your business:
 La Spice – The Walnut Company began with a fond childhood memory and four generations of preparing walnuts for the holidays and special occasion.  We are a gourmet nut company, our nuts are coated with pristine ingredients, we use only the freshest nuts and we package them beautifully.  We also carry the freshest raw nuts and trail mix.  A simple nut turned into an extraordinary snack is what La Spice - The Walnut Company is!

Tell us what inspires you:
Stories! I love to listen to people telling their stories and experiences.

Please share with others, your best marketing techniques:
Networking and events!  These days you must be able to sell online.  Being in the food industry, you must get your product out there, you must get people to taste it. I have found with my nuts, people think it’s just another nut, but if you taste it, it has now become a wow factor!

What do you love most about your business?
When a customer says, “Wow, this is so delicious”.  Selling one of nature's super foods in terms of nutrition and health benefits. The incredible smells in the kitchen.

Please tell us why have chosen Craft Café as a venue for your business?
 It’s new and has unlimited possibilities for success. The Craft Café staff, always available and responds quickly to problems or questions.  When I found out about Craft Cafe I had be a part of the success.  I love Craft Café's website.

What advice can you give for crafters/artisans just starting out?
 “If you dream it, you can do it” and “Be fearless”
