Our Story

How we started


        Anne and Ray Bianchi in 1975             

Bianchi Orchards is a family-owned and operated business in Northern California, producing premium Chandler Walnuts on a 80 acre farm. The family has a love of agriculture that spans two generations.  The picture to the left shows Anne and Ray Bianchi (mom and dad) 42 years ago when they decided to farm. They have five children and are enjoying grand children. 

      For 38 years the Bianchi family produced crops that were sold in bulk to brokers and product handlers. With the return of their eldest  daughter to the farm, in 2009 the family started to package and market their own branded retail pack walnuts as value added products.  In 2014 the Winery was added to diversify our product line.
