Baugher Ranch - Organic Almonds
The Baugher family has been farming for many generations. Chris and wife Marcie knew that moving to organic farming was their calling. In 1984, Chris and Marcie held on to a 40 acre almond orchard with everything they had and started Baugher Ranch Organics the next year. Almost 30 years later, their farm and processing facility in Northern California has become the leading producer of organic almonds.
With four generations working together side by side on the farm, ‘organic’ has become a way of life for the Baughers. Today, their daughters Nisha and Rania and their son Bradley all live and work on the farm. For them, organic farming and processing is beyond certifications and is really about embodying organic principles. Through cover cropping, water conservation, promoting biodiversity and other practices, they hope to give back to the land and provide something better for future generations. And although the lifestyle has been physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging, at the end of the day, they find it brings tremendous joy and is deeply rewarding.
