California Almond Growers Exchange Almond Processing Facility

The California Almond Growers Exchange founded in 1910, was first successful grower-owned co-operative for marketing California almonds. It pioneered in many fields, including almond production, mechanization and marketing. The first structure on this property was built in 1915 and was designed to mechanize almond processing. This shelling plant was one of the earliest structures of its type, and contained the world’s first mechanical cracker.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the California Almond Growers Exchange, November 15, 1985.
