The Martella Family

Grower Direct Nut Company is owned and operated by the Martella Family. Our family's roots as farmers in Stanislaus County go back four generations. Originally dedicated to growing and harvesting our own walnuts, today our family serves many local growers with a commercial harvesting business and one of the largest walnut hullers and dehydrators in California. In 2004, our walnut shelling and processing facility, Grower Direct Nut Company, was established.
