Producing the best tasting almonds in the world requires meticulous attention to the almond crop in the field prior to the processing. One thing industrial farming overlooks is that we grow the food not manufacture it. Canaan works with the farmers to develop a plan to manage every farm based on the terrain and the surrounding environment developing an ecologically sound and sustainable approach to growing the best almond out of the land. We are involved from the life of the soil to the tree to the kernel making sure they are producing an almond not only tasty but has its fullest potential of nutrients and health benefits. We are growing food.
