All natural nuts grown on our own ranches in the Central San Joaquin Valley of California
in the farming community of Selma, California.
About Quality and Size:
We package and sell
only First Grade Number #1 Size Almonds and Pistachios for
retail sale to you. All nuts are graded as to size and quality
as part of the nut harvesting and processing and packing
operations at the ranch. Broken and lesser sized nuts are used
for wholesale sales to the food processing and bakery industry
where the largest or prettiest nuts may not be a necessity for
their purposes. As far as taste goes, the small nut still
tastes great, but for snacking it's nice to have a large
premium sized nut to munch on!
About the Crop Year:
Our nuts are harvested
in early September of each year. We do not sell nuts after the
following September from the previous year. If
stored correctly, your Almonds and Pistachios will retain their
quality over a long period of time. Actually if held at cool
temperatures and low relative humidity, it is possible to store
them without special techniques for up to one year. If you want the
very best storage conditions for your nuts, then keep them in the
refrigerator and away from the oxygen in the air in a tightly
sealed jar, or better yet use a home vacuum bag sealer machine.
