Amber Balakian is fourth generation farmer, her father Clarence, and grandmother, Stella, along with 5 full-time and 20 seasonal employees. Amber’s great-grandfather, an immigrant from Armenia, first planted a vineyard in Reedley over 80 years ago and much of the vineyard is producing grapes today. In 1999, the Balakian’s began organic practices and expanded their product line. With the support of family and their employees, Amber is committed to continuing the fusion of family values, innovation and tradition. Their goal is to reach beyond the short-term to create a sustainable, and, healthy internal and external environment that fosters ongoing learning, communication and trust. They are currently developing a line of canned products using Armenian recipes passed down from generations.
