We walked around orchards, dodged harvesting equipment, and toured the processing where 1 million walnuts are cracked each day. The scope of the whole operation was pretty mind boggling, and it was so fascinating to see the journey each nut takes from the orchard to the grocery store shelves. Continue Reading…
