One of PacTrust’s most beautiful assets is the M&T Chico Ranch. The farm has been in existence since the mid-1800’s, and owned by PacTrust since 1988. The farm has over 1,400 production acres of almonds, 470 acres of prunes and almost 3,000 acres of walnuts. The ranch also includes several homes, an almond hulling and storage facility and a walnut huller and dryer facility.
The ranch uses modern sustainability practices, including a solar farm that produces power for the operation of the farm and micro-drip irrigation which greatly reduces the amount of water used.
The property encompasses more than 8,500 total acres and is located about three miles southwest of Chico, California.
