From Orchard to Table
Crunching into an almond, it’s hard to imagine the journey that little nut took to make its way to your mouth. The almond lifecycle has many stages and an abundance of natural beauty. Here are the different life stages.
From mid-August through October, mechanical tree "shakers" harvest the almonds by vigorously shaking them to the ground. The almonds then dry naturally for 8–10 days in the orchard before they are swept into rows and picked up by machine.
