Sustainability

We Are More Than Almonds and Orchards.
We Are a Cooperative.

We are a cooperative of growers, stewards, and nurturers.

We are a family of growers, owned by growers. We are a cooperative, 3,000 growers strong. Being a cooperative is important to us for so many reasons, but one especially close to our hearts is having the ability to work with people who love almonds as much as we do. People who care as much about healthy ecosystems as they do about the bottom line. People who look at a package of almonds or a carton of almondmilk and know how much care and expertise went into creating it.

Our family has been growing almonds in the California Central Valley since 1979 and sustainable practices have been part of our growing philosophy from the beginning. We’ve designed our ranch from the start using sustainable principles around irrigation, biodiversity, and best practices to ensure our continued success while minimizing our impact on the environment. We feel privileged to work in agriculture and to be a part of the Blue Diamond Growers family. -Mike Doherty

Our Facilities

We’ve been in business for over 100 years and we understand that longevity requires a commitment to long-term sustainability and innovation; which is exactly why we are continuously searching for ways to drive efficiencies in waste reduction, water use efficiency, and energy consumption. We continue to find new ways of reducing our by-product waste streams through a focus on product innovation and updates to our processing facilities. The future is important to us and by working to reduce our environmental impact, we help improve the planet, our products, and our business as a whole.
