History and Heritage
Mid Valley Nut is a family company built through four generations of hard work and innovation.
John Casazza and his father-in-law Art Schrage started the business in 1970, processing walnuts in a converted hay barn with used equipment. In the early days, Art worked the day shift and John, who was growing walnuts and managing farms, worked at night. John’s wife Suzanne joined the business as it steadily grew.
Today, the Mid Valley Nut Company has modern facilities and equipment, giving it processing capabilities undreamed of in 1970. From in-shell walnuts sacked for export to private label cello packs ready for snacking, Mid Valley Nut can meet any customer’s needs.
