Location / Environment
Located in Linden, approximately 80 miles inland from San Francisco, in the fertile San Joaquin Valley, Prima Noce's location provides the foundation for our quality. Linden's location at the mouth of the San Joaquin Delta provides warm growing days and cool nights. The cool nights are provided courtesy of a refreshing Delta breeze that comes in from the San Francisco Bay through the Carquinez Strait. The cool nights allow walnuts to mature in an environment that prevents sunburn and discoloration of the walnut meat. The combination of fertile Delta soil and excellent weather conditions creates a superior location to grow some of the largest, light-colored walnuts in the world.
