The Koan family has been on this farm-land since the 1850's. Albert Koan Sr. was a fruit-produce farmer who supplied the neighboring towns and cities all his farming life.
Albert Jr. followed in his father's footsteps, and with the desire and determination of his son, Jim Koan, has continued in the tradition and ideals which have nurtured the farm to this very day.

The Koan Farm became known as "Al-Mar Orchard" [when AL-bert Sr. married MAR-y]. The name has since become the keepsake.

Though there have been continuing changes and advancements in technology and additions to the farm, QUALITY is still the main driving force.

Today, Almar Orchard is well-known for it's dedication to "quality over quantity" and is continuing in it's set course of being the best that they can be.

Throughout the grand history of Almar Orchard very few things have actually changed.

The pride in a job well done and the care that is taken to produce a top notch product is - and always has been - what makes Almar orchard one-of-a-kind
