WHO WE ARE
We grow the highest quality almonds while farming sustainably and efficiently. Using an attention to detail, we farm on a higher level for our environment and community. Take a look at our process, below.
First, our almonds are grown and harvested here at Vann Brothers, where we produce high-quality almonds right from the start.
Then, we bring them to Yolo Hulling and Shelling where we carefully hull and shell the almonds and remove any foreign materials.
Our growth and success has been bolstered immeasurably by our dedicated employees. Our valued employees stay with us for a considerable length of time (average tenure of a farm employee is 15+ years), which ensures each individual is able to accumulate a vast knowledge base. We’re incredibly thankful for the amazing team we’ve built over the years, and we’re proud to work alongside them each day, moving the needle forward and setting the bar of excellence in our industry.
Working with experienced growers provides us with the best quality almonds before processing begins. Although maintaining our high standards requires additional procedures, we believe they are a small price to pay to maintain the integrity of our product.
We’ve built our team carefully, selecting experienced operators that understand the complex science, and delicate balance of almond processing. Sharing our high standards of success, each of our operators possess a strong knowledge base pertaining to quality in all aspects of the process.
We’ve continually embraced the technological advances available. Through research, and with the help of domestic and international industry professionals, we’ve implemented a variety of technology solutions, each unique in both design and function.
• QUALITY LAND through stewardship
• QUALITY EMPLOYEES through empowerment
• QUALITY PRODUCTS through innovation
• QUALITY LIFE through respect
Operating a sustainable business is not a project with a defined end— it is an ongoing journey with continuous improvements and the embracing of transparency. Our view of sustainability means we cannot seek economic gain at the expense of environmental stewardship or community. Take a look at some of our best sustainability practices, below.
- TRAINING – Ample employee training on safety, quality, & operations
- PEOPLE – Highly competitive salary rates, and a promote-from-within philosophy
- PESTICIDES – Use of an outside, third-party professional firm to optimize orchard insect control
- WATER – Use of micro-sprinklers in orchards
We are firmly committed to being a leader in food safety and quality practices, maintaining a safe and healthy workplace, and protecting the environment. We believe that excellence in these core practices is not only vital to deepening customer relationships and building trust, but is necessary in preserving the legacy of our organization.
