OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
We strive for all of our tree nut commodities to resemble basic renewable principles. In fact, 95% of our walnut production is a renewable resource from cattle feed to road pack and 100% of the walnut meat is used for consumption. Walnut shells are classified in a group of fuels called biomass. Biomass fuels are any plant-derived organic matter available on a renewable basis, according to the U.S. Department of Energy – Renewable Energy.
Our regenerative farming system aims to preserve a natural relationship between plants and soil organisms. As a true reflection of the land and people who steward it. We promote biodiversity by planting cover crops as one of our regenerative practices to lower our carbon footprint and maintain healthy soil biome amongst our trees. While we don’t have all the answers yet, we will strive for goals within the community and our global environment to do the right thing by the people and for the planet.
Bee Friendly Farming – Cultivating a Future for Bees
We are dedicated to Pollinator Partnerships by supporting the health of pollinators critical to food and ecosystems, through conservation, education, and research. It is our mission to become a certified Bee Friendly Farmer and help our contracted almond and walnut growers to carry the same certification and uphold this standard in farming.
