Episode 48: Hands-On Orchard Management with Dan Clendenin


Grower Dan Clendenin produces almonds in both Merced and Madera as part of a family partnership with his siblings. Growing up, the family grew fresh market vegetables, and they eventually planted almonds in the late 1970s. Clendenin shares his personal almond journey, his hands-on approach to orchard management and some of the innovative practices he has adopted over the years.

Being outside is great, watching the blooms is great, watching it leaf when spring comes and new life. But as I said before, the best part is still when that check comes because you can't do the rest of it without the check.
