Video: America! It's Raining Almonds!

Dear brothers and sisters,

The family farmers who grow our almonds have come through for us again. Even though the drought has been even more intense than last year they have harvested a bountiful crop. 

The Koretoff family grow our almonds. They have been farming this California earth for 5 generations.

Their resilience and hard work is an example for all of us.                                              

Brothers and sisters, we invite you to watch the almonds falling from sky!

We shall yet build here a garden for the American spirit.

Let us go forth, confident in the knowledge that we shall come through.
