Almond Orchard Stewardship

Orchard Stewardship

We treat our orchards like the precious asset they are, striving to conserve resources, eliminate waste, and minimize environmental impact.


Integrated Pest Management

We don’t spray during the days when bees are flying. We do this at night.

Well-Fed Bees Flourish

We provide bees with fresh water and diverse pollen as food (3% cover crop and hedgerows).

Bee-Friendly Certified

Through our membership in the Pollinator Partnership, our orchards are Bee-Friendly certified.

Water Conservation

  • Our almond husks serve as livestock feed, which reduces reliance on water-intensive feed crops like alfalfa and silage corn.
  • We seek out almond growers who employ advanced drip-irrigation and monitoring technologies to conserve water.
  • Our growers are investing in soil health practices that increase water-holding capacity and ultimately reduce water dependency in almond growing.

Santos Martinez | Orchard Development Manager, Heritage

I’m proud to have farmed with the Gardiner Family for 25 years, and have even become a partner on their almond farm. As a first-generation Mexican-American, I appreciate the opportunities that the Gardiners and Treehouse provided me and my family as I built my career in this rewarding industry.
