Gold Leaf Farming, a company that owns and manages almond, pistachio and date orchards in California and Arizona, expanded with the acquisition of 1,850 acres located along the westside of the San Joaquin Valley, California.
The Seller was a multi-generational family partnership with a long history of farming in California. Buyer, Golf Leaf Farming, said the acquisition is an important part of the company’s expansion strategy; officials said, “we are a young, dynamic company growing our acreage and team in 2020 and beyond. As younger growers, we are aiming to build a farming company for the long-haul that will emulate the hard work, high character, and quality operations of past generations of successful growers while incorporating modern farming practices, technology, and sustainability."
"As younger growers, we aim to build on the success of past generations of California farmers while leveraging technology and sustainable practices wherever possible," said Brandon Rebiero of Gold Leaf Farming. He continued, "Our deep ag experience will allow us to continue to operate this farm with the highest quality standards as we expand our farming footprint."
"The market for almond and pistachio orchards in California is strong, with the number of buyers easily outnumbering quality orchards available to purchase," Al & Josh Mendrin of The Mendrin Group, a leading brokerage, consulting and advisory firm of agricultural land assets and vertically integrated agribusinesses, said.
