Gold Leaf is a farming company whose vision is to build farms, family, and a future we’re proud of. We own and operate ~12,000 acres of almonds, pistachios, and dates in California and Arizona, making us a top ~15 grower of these crops globally. Our growth has been enabled by >$250M of investment from our partners and our >80-person team that operates the farms every day.
Our North Star is to leave the world better than we found it. We have a significant opportunity to do well by doing good - we invest in our team, so that we can invest in differentiated, sustainable farming, so that we can drive financial results. Our farm workers have a $23 starting wage in California, fully paid healthcare, retirement, and parental leave. Many of our farms are transitioning to organic and all use cutting edge farming tech. These strategies have enabled us to build an advantage over our limited competition and continue our focus on building a great, long-lasting farming company.
Over time, we aim to continue to grow our farms under management, acreage, and team. Our two founders have a balance of investing and farming experience – Jack (CEO) is former TPG Capital, McKinsey, and Stanford GSB while Brandon (Head of Farming) is an accomplished agronomist having managed 10,000+ acres. We hold traditional farming values in high regard: taking pride in quality operations, buying and holding prime farms with a long-term view (everything we buy we’d be happy to own forever), and staying grounded in our values: being candid, putting family first, acting like owners and leading by example.
