The Specialty Crop Company was founded in 1989 by Kevin and Diane Herman. Our company is the largest grower of fresh and dried figs in the world. We also sell fresh frozen figs in bulk and even fig leaves for specialty food applications. In addition to figs, we specialize in the farming of pistachios, almonds, pomegranates, citrus, kiwi and persimmons. Our ranches are located primarily in Madera and Merced counties and include properties that we own, lease or manage for other property owners.
