Resolute in our desire to be the best Walnut processor in California

About Us

Linden Nut Company was established on December 1, 1984, and in July 2013 was acquired by another locally owned San Joaquin company, Turkhan Foods, Inc. The two companies and their members combined their orchards as well as warehouse and distribution facilities to create an independent facility that packs and ships the best in California grown walnuts.

The Linden Nut Company facility is located in heart of the rich San Joaquin Valley, Linden California. We offer in-shell and shelled walnuts internationally and domestically. Our geographic location provides the optimum weather to produce the best quality walnuts in the world, and at Linden Nut we take great pride in our commitment to growing and packing the top grade in California walnuts.

Our direct and indirect sales teams continue to grow as we distribute the Linden Nut brand throughout the world.  Linden Nut Company continues to extend our product reach without sacrificing our high quality standards. You can truly see and taste the quality; from our crops to consumer consumption, you will find the Linden Nut brand offers tree to taste reliability with our buyers, and ultimately with our end users.

While global in its marketing approach, the company has a local, small business approach to business. Our company is founded on the principles of Honesty, Integrity, and a motto of “Ease of Doing Business” in all its dealing. We also pursue “Quality, “Service” and “Excellence” in all our endeavors.
