The Prima® Promise – Growing the Freshest, Juiciest & Tastiest Fruits

Fresh-picked fruit from our orchards is always at its peak of juiciness and flavor because we put quality first. Each stone fruit is grown, nurtured, hand-picked, and hand-packed exactly the same. From planting to hand-picking, we strive for perfection in every operation so you can trust that when you pick up a piece of Prima®, you’re enjoying premium quality fruits that are brought to you at the perfect time. That’s the Prima®promise.

Seasonal Harvest – Early Season Through Late Season Picking

Harvest can take anywhere from a few days to over 6 weeks, depending on variety. Generally speaking, early season harvest lasts for a week or two, while late season fruit might pick for a period of 4-6 weeks. Harvesting fruit at peak ripeness can mean many picks or passes on the same tree. It is not uncommon to pick the tree every other day or every 3rd day for over a month.

From our orchards and packing facilities to our farm-management practices and commitment to employees, our passion for sustainability is evident in everything we do.

Solar Panels – Have over 10 acres of sun-tracking solar panels.

Natural Pest Abatement – Utilize native predatory insects, owls and hawks to control the pest population while supporting biodiversity throughout the Central Valley.

Water Practices – Utilize water-conserving irrigation methods throughout our orchards and packing facilities, and treat wash water so it can be recycled to irrigate grasslands that feed local livestock and replenish groundwater levels.

Energy-Efficient Lighting – Reduce energy usage throughout the packing facility.

No Waste – All of our fruit finds a home.

Cover Crops – Plant cover crops throughout our orchards to protect the ground and nurture the soil.

Agricultural Conservation – Placed 9,200 acres of land into an easement through the California Department of Conservation to remove development pressures and prohibit practices that could damage or interfere with agricultural use of the land.

Reduced Emissions – Operate electric forklifts and reduced-emission semi-trucks.
