Chris and Marcie Baugher are the Founders, Owners and Operators of Baugher Ranch Organics. We have been farming, processing, and marketing organic almonds since 1985. Baugher Ranch Organics is a 100% organic almond farm and processing plant. Therefore, we eliminate any possibility of co-mingling and/or co-contamination to occur here.

Farm Verified Organic, California Certified Organic Farmers, USDA Organic, BioSuisse, and Vaad Hakashrus of Northern California. We are also members or the Organic Trade Association and IFOAM accredited. This ensures we are committed to the organic industry, serving the domestic and international needs of our customers.

At Baugher Ranch Organics our commitment to our customers is to grow, process, and market 100% certified organic almonds. This guarantees our customers in purchasing a quality product. We welcome the opportunity to bring you our certified organic almonds!

Baugher Ranch Organics has addressed your concerns…
• Farm only 100% USDA certified organic almonds.
• Process only 100% USDA certified organic almonds.
• Handle only 100% USDA certified organic almonds.
• Stores only 100% USDA certified organic almonds.
• Guarantee that our almonds are not Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s).

Regarding Pasteurization:
As of September 1, 2007, federal regulation formally went into effect mandating that all California almonds commercially sold within the NAFTA countries undergo an additional food safety processing step to eliminate foodborne pathogens.

We are passionate about every aspect of our organic almond business with quality, integrity, and loyalty being our cornerstone. Being that we exclusively handle organic almonds, we viewed this as a paramount challenge to take a leadership role to locate and determine the best process for our almonds. We narrowed it down to the two best thermal heat treatment processes and then conducted detailed reviews based on live representative processing. From that, we made a decision to use the process which yielded the best all inclusive results. Our almonds pass through a 200-degree Fahrenheit steam chamber for 20 to 22 seconds and then immediately proceed onto the drying and cooling process. Once “treated,” our almonds are then graded, sorted, and stored in the manner you have become accustomed to with Baugher Ranch Organics. It is literally that simple.

We have found this process to be the least intrusive of the organic-compliant options we currently have in place. Even though this is a very good processing technique, we continue to research and support research that for alternative processing options.
