Grower Direct Nut Company is owned and operated by the Martella Family. Our family's roots as farmers in the Stanislaus County go back four generations. Originally dedicated to growing and harvesting our own walnuts, today our family serves many local growers with a commercial harvesting business and one of the largest walnut hullers and dehydrators in California. In 2004, our walnut shelling and processing facility, Grower Direct Nut Company, was established. Here properly hulled and dried walnuts are received, graded, sized, shelled and packaged. Grower Direct Nut Company handles and markets walnuts from it’s own family orchards as well as the crops of many other quality walnut growers located throughout California’s Central Valley.
