Farming Trivia:
  • California almond growers produce 100% of our domestic supply of almonds and over 75% of the world production!
  • Almonds are grown in a 500 mile span of California’s central valley – they thrive off of the hot summers and mild winters.
  • Buds are on trees from November until early February, but aren’t harvested until September or October. But the good news is, they’re available year-round!
