We are third generation farmers. We farm 300 acres of prunes and walnuts in northern California. My mother refers to this area as “God’s country”
We take great pride in every aspect of the operation to assure we raise the best quality walnuts. Because we hull and dry our own walnuts, we know that the end product is perfect. The walnuts are immediately cracked and placed into cold storage to ensure the freshest walnuts available. They are never stored in a warm or lighted environment. When an order is placed we take them out of cold storage and ship them immediately. That is why we can say Derby Walnuts are the best tasting walnuts! Taste test after taste test proves it true, We guarantee it or your money back.
Because we are so blessed to be a part of such beautiful and rich land, we are constantly implementing best practices so we can be the best stewards possible. This includes updating irrigation systems, using only what the trees need and having no waste. We are also cover cropping to promote a healthy environment for native beneficial bees and insects, as well as, growing vegetative buffer zones to capture excess water, and keep our waterways clean and safe from fertilizers.
Give our walnuts a try and say goodbye to dull and dry walnuts of the past and hello to the world of fresh! Because Fresh just tastes better.
