Our Story

We are passionate and committed to growing and producing high-quality Australian almonds and almond-based products with the simplest ingredients. We are proud to share our products with our customers and to connect people to the land.

It's the collaboration between family, farm and home which allows the Mandolé Orchard team to provide a unique offering of fresh, honest and nutritious products that carry our signature Mandolé flavour you won't find anywhere else.

The Almond Farmers

Father and son duo and master almond growers Denis and Dean, are third and fourth generation farmers whose family have successfully farmed in the Riverina for over 80 years.

Denis and Dean are the pioneers of almond farming in the region, with Denis the first grower to represent the Riverina on the Almond Board of Australia. Until recently, he held this position for 10 years.

Dean has been awarded the Australian Almond Industry's Phil Watters Award, recognising his service and dedication to research, development and the improvement of almond production in Australia.
Denis and Dean's dedication to the industry and passion for farming is why Mandolé Orchard is one of the largest family owned and operated almond orchards in Australia today.

They know farming and they know almonds.

Now to the Kitchen

All our products started in the kitchen; Tootie’s Kitchen.

Tootie’s passion and love for cooking has been shaped greatly by her mother Matilde, affectionately known as Nonna Tilly, whose insights and experience stem from her Northern Italian upbringing and influence Tootie’s cooking in many ways.

The heart and soul of Mandolé Orchard, Tootie (aka Annette) is constantly conjuring up delicious recipes and is passionate about all directions in almonds.

Our Products

Too good to keep Tootie’s recipes to themselves, Tootie's son-in-love Tom and her daughter Jenna want to share her recipes with the world.

It took this husband and wife duo a number of years of extensive research and development to be able to deliver Tootie's handcrafted homemade almond milk recipe to your door.

Launching in 2019, the team at Mandolé Orchard are excited to finally share their family’s fresh, single origin products with you.
