Sacramento Valley Walnut Growers, LLC. is a grower owned processor and marketer of California walnuts. SVWG was founded by a small group of growers that wanted to take their family farming traditions to the next level - to directly market a healthy food to consumers, to enrich the fabric of our local communities and create a legacy for future generations. With this as our foundation, we work to present you with the highest quality walnuts.
Our commitment to you begins in the field with the quality of walnuts coming from our own orchards. We fulfill the growing demand for our brand by combining forces with like-minded growers to ensure quality from the orchard to the table. We serve inshell and kernel customers in the retail, re-bagging, food service and industrial sectors. Sac Valley walnuts are distributed throughout the world, spreading heart health.
