Your virtual culinary adventure begins with a tour through the pistachio orchards of California’s San Joaquin Valley. Farmers, including Kable Munger of Munger Farms located in the heart of California's San Joaquin Valley, will share how pistachios make it from farm to table.
Kable Munger, along with his siblings David and Kamie Munger —and their extended family —has been farming pistachios for over 30 years in California’s San Joaquin Valley. As teens, Kable and brother David, came with their parents from northern India and worked in the family farm growing a variety of different produce. Then, in 1986, the family purchased their first ranch of pistachios in the Lost Hills area, and within two years, they purchased additional ranches in both Kern and Tulare counties. Grateful for the life they’ve established in California, they continue to support community medical projects and schools in Punjab, India.
