Quality begins in the orchard and being growers ourselves, our approach has always been hands on. Integrating years of experience, good agricultural practices, pest control management and cutting edge technology has allowed us to produce the finest quality walnuts.
Our growers have the opportunity to partner with one of our three experienced pest control advisors. In all, they have a combined experience of over 75 years and monitor over 8,000 acres of walnuts in the Central Valley. Our company completely funds this service to maximize quality and grower profitability.

The Early Harvest Program is used to advance the harvest date in order to preserve the quality of the walnuts. Poindexter Nut Company pays for the Etherol and the growers pay for the application. Higher quality walnuts result in increased value and marketability of the product and in return, more money for the growers.
We provide the highest level of hulling and drying services. During the walnut harvest, time is of the essence and we have a dedicated team to ensure your crop is handled in a timely and efficient manner.
