Meet Some of our Family Farmers
California Pear farmers are typically small, family run operations, often spanning several generations. California pears were one of the first tree crops planted on the West Coast, and many of the pear orchards still in production in California are over 100 years old. California Pear growers are careful stewards of the land they farm, and have recently been recognized as pioneers of sustainability because of efforts in the areas of integrated pest management (IPM), water conservation, and soil nutrient management. In addition, all of the orchards fruit which Scully Packing receives must undergo annual Food Safety audits.
Approximately 30% of the tonnage handled by Scully Packing Company is from orchards farmed and managed by the Scully family. The remaining tonnage is entrusted to us to pack and market by independent growers from Sacramento, Mendocino, and Lake Counties.
