We know our almonds are good because we grow, nurture and harvest every single one of them in our sun soaked orchards of California. See, they even sound delicious. Explore the different stages of our almond's lifecycle below to find out how we grow the goodness.

  • Bloom

    In February, the buds on our almond trees burst into beautiful pink and white blossoms.

  • Pollination

    Just before spring, over a million colonies are placed in our orchards. It's time for them to get busy and pollinate this year's crops.

  • Growing Up

    From March to June, our almonds soak up all the lovely California sun, their shells harden and the kernels form.

  • Cracking

    The almond hulls begin to open up and dry out in the sun. When the hulls open up completely, we know they're ripe and ready!

  • The Shaker

    It's finally harvest time - our mechanical tree shakers get to work shaking our almonds off their trees ready for us to gather up.

  • Downtime

    Once the cold weather comes, our trees go to sleep and begin storing up lots of goodness for next year's crops.
