The Avila family has been in farming for four generations. The first Generation Avilas grew fruit trees. Grandpa Avila took the trees out to grow cotton, wheat, and alfalfa. His son LeRoy continued growing the row crops until his two sons were old enough to take part in the farming operation. The sons convinced their Dad to plant pistachios. Seven years later they harvested their first crop. The first year Leroy’s wife Barbara and their two sons and daughter sold the pistachios from their home. Within two years they built the country store called Avila Acres Country Gourmet Gift Shoppe. The family has worked long and hard to provide the best pistachio gifts. These gifts are shipped all over the world. For that special gourmet treat, come in or order from our selections. We are open all year round.
