Over the last 56 years, the growth of our grower owned co-operative and the Almond industry as a whole has been unprecedented. We are proud to support our grower members in the central San Joaquin Valley.
Our Sanger site is where the Association’s first huller was installed in 1963. This is when the almond industry began in the San Joaquin Valley. Currently, this location has a single sheller that came on line in 1985.
Kerman Plant #1 (of 3) was the first in-line sheller after the pre-cleaner that was ever constructed in the World. Prior to its inception almonds were hulled as inshell and then transported to another location to be shelled.
Do you have adequate space on your ranch to store some, or all your harvested almond production? If so, the Association will make it worth your while.
The 2019 crop has the makings of another record. The Association is budgeting for a crop size of 132,822,000 meat equivalent pounds. To adjust to this new reality of even larger volumes in years ahead we have taken numerous actions to help us prepare.
Are there changes you have made to your farm which we should know about? If so, please make sure not only to let your handler know, but to let us know as well.
This year’s annual meeting was held on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at TorNino’s Banquet Hall in Fresno. It was a very special evening in which we celebrated the 56th Annual Dinner Meeting of the Association.
