Our Grower Family

Our walnuts come from the bountiful rich soils of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Valleys, with the majority located in the Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties. At Grower Direct Nut we make it a top priority to build long-lasting, and genuine relationships with all of our growers.We consider our growers as our partners and are in constant dialogue with them regarding quality, crop and market conditions.

Our family companies, as a whole, offer a wide variety of services to growers. From harvesting, hulling/dehydrating, and shelling, packing and marketing. Walnut growers, we are here to serve you and can help in one service or fully integrated services.

Established growers and hullers have access to their account information via our online Grower Services Interface.
