About Our Company – Empire Nut Company 2017-10-24T18:05:03+00:00

In 2011, the Nevis family and the Thiara family transitioned their shared views of the California Walnut Industry into Empire Nut Company and began processing and delivering their respective walnut crops to market. Along the way, like-minded farmers who placed the same emphasis on growing farm fresh walnuts joined Empire Nut Company’s valued and respected growers base.

Nevis Family History

The Nevis family’s agricultural roots trace back to the 1920’s. Samuel Nevis and Dominic Nevis have expansive farming operations in northern California and currently grow Peaches, Prunes, Olives, Wheat, Rice and Walnuts.

Thiara Family History

Since 1960, the Thiara family has been engaged in hands-on farming of Walnuts, Prunes, Almonds, Raisins and Peaches, in both the Northern and Central Valleys of California. Gary Thiara and Shindi Thiara manage the family’s farming operations.
