A Track Record Of Field Knowledge, Stability

Panoche Creek partner Ross Blackburn grew up in the almond business and today handles the firm’s almond sales. Partner Frank Roque joined Panoche Creek in 1997 as a field representative. Today he’s a partner in the company and the lead almond buyer.

A company’s stability and success are often measured by longevity. The executive team at Panoche Creek have more than 46 combined harvests behind them.  That stability is backed by a conservative business model and a commitment to constant communication with buyers and growers. Together, Ross, Frank and their employees are dedicated to a value-added approach that benefits both growers and buyers.
