Chowchilla nut cooperative adds new huller and sheller

Minturn Hullers Cooperative of Chowchilla held an open house Friday to showcase its new, state-of-the-art almond huller and sheller. This is the third addition to the Madera County almond-processing facility that last year produced more than 80 million meat pounds of almonds. With the new equipment, Minturn expects to double its capacity and produce more than 150 million meat pounds during this harvest season.
