From the age of eight, when Albert began irrigating the fields of his family’s farming operation, he has found farming to be more than merely an occupation – it is his passion.
“I’ve never wanted to do anything else except be involved in agriculture,” he says.
After graduating from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Albert enjoyed a 15-year career in farm management before coming to Rivermaid Trading Company, attracted by the high ethical standards of its leadership and the high standards expected of its people.
Today, Albert is responsible for communicating with cherry growers throughout the year, advising them on maintaining the highest quality possible.
“We want to make sure the consumer gets the quality they expect when they purchase Rivermaid products,” he says. “That’s vitally important to all of us.”
When he’s not in the orchards, Albert can be found traveling, working out and participating in sports, and has enjoyed coaching high school basketball.
