Our first pistachio trees were planted in 1971 by Dr. Mehdi Orandi, a pistachio farming trailblazer. These trees thrive and flourish in the Orandi Ranch orchards growing three pistachio varieties in Terra Bella, California. These Arya, Kalegoochi, and Kerman varieties are the largest and most flavorful pistachio nuts.
Dr. Mehdi Orandi brought the Orandi clan to California to plant pistachios which have developed into a multi-family legacy. Varying in age from the oldest most mature trees to newer developing orchards, today the land, trees, and crops are nurtured and maintained by CEO Adam Orandi working alongside his father Mehdi.
Nut-thing replaces teaching like that of a father–son business, forging ahead with innovative crop development and harvesting methods.
