Our Story

Some of the best recipes are those passed down from one generation to the next. From the very start, there was something so right about them. So simple. So delicious.

At Orchard Valley Harvest, that’s how we feel about our nuts, dried fruits, and mixes. Long before we were around, nature came up with the perfect recipe—one that didn’t include artificial ingredients or genetically modified organisms. We stay true to that recipe.

When the sun peeks over the horizon each morning, we roll up our sleeves and work closely with the earth to make sure the food you snack on is pure and tasty—from almond farms in California to pecan farms in Georgia.

Whether you prefer the simplicity of raw pecans, the decadence of chocolate covered almonds or the satisfying blend of trail mixes, you’ll always find something delicious at Orchard Valley Harvest to make you smile. Just like an old recipe.

Grower Story: Kevin Clements

Following closely in the footsteps of his father and grandfather before him, Kevin Clements is a third-generation walnut farmer.

Back in the 1940s, Kevin’s grandparents headed west from Missouri and settled upon the rich soils of Visalia, California. When he was growing up, Kevin’s mother always kept fresh, raw walnuts out for snacking, and his grandmother’s sugar-coated walnuts were always a special treat. Decades later, Kevin carries on those special traditions with his own family.

Harvest is Kevin’s favorite time of year. Strolling the land, shaking the trees and inspecting the walnuts for size and color. He selects only the best ones, right at their peak—no exceptions. When the trucks are loaded and head out down the road, he takes great pride in knowing you’ll soon be enjoying the same wholesome snacks he shares with his own family.

The origin of Orchard Valley Harvest nuts is as important as the little nuts themselves. That’s why we get our almonds, pecans—and walnuts—from farmers who care about the crops just as much as we do. Farmers like Kevin Clements.
