What We Believe


We believe in not only thinking outside the box, but completely redefining it. We want to change the way things are done, remove inefficiencies, and increase quality. This belief is reflected by our name, Acme Walnut Shelling.

Acme (noun) “the culminating point, as of achievement or excellence; summit; peak”

To expand on the definition above, we wish to reach the peak of a mountain no one has scaled yet. Once we get there, we will find the next mountain to climb. Our pursuit of achieving excellence is never ending because we believe in the process above all else. To accomplish this, we stay on the cutting edge of technology. We have also designed and built some of our own equipment. Our shelling process and facility layout have been custom designed for maximum efficiency and highest half count in the industry.

We have practiced these beliefs with walnut shelling since 1992. We process high quality California walnuts, grown only in rich California soil. Not only do we shell our own product, but others will send us their product to be processed, we call this custom work. We both custom shell walnuts and custom clean walnuts. Companies come to us for these services for many reasons. Some have more walnuts than they can currently handle. Some require our speed and some higher quality. All experience a greater profit from their products. To learn more about these services please visit the “What We Do” tab.
