At Stahmann Webster we pride ourselves in being farm-to-table producers of world class walnuts, pecans, macadamias and almonds.
From growing and processing to marketing, we are a team of hard-working producers and purpose-driven promoters. We specialise in what we do well, recognising that to deliver the best possible product, we need to work hard across all aspects of our business, closely monitoring and responsibly managing every step.
We are counted on — by our people, our customers and our communities — to deliver what we say. As a good employer and operator, we take seriously our role as responsible stewards and managers of the land, and as locals, we actively support our neighbours across the country.
At Stahmann Webster, we are fully invested, from the ground up. Because naturally, we believe people should feel good about the choices they make.
In 2020, Stahmann Farms and Webster Limited became Stahmann Webster. Built on hard work and determination, Stahmann Webster is trusted to deliver the best from what nature provides. This trust stems from bringing together two established, Australian agricultural brands — Stahmann Farms and Webster Limited — to bring the best possible locally-grown, natural nut products from our orchards to the world.
With a history spanning more than 180 years, we are proud of our roots and draw strength from our heritage, looking to the future with energy and optimism. Forever guided by our down-to-earth nature and authentic Australian spirit, we constantly strive to bring out the best in our people and our products.
Stahmann Farms Inc. was established in Las Cruces, New Mexico, in 1932 by Deane Stahmann Snr. Deane and his sons, the late brothers, Deane Jnr and Bill Stahmann, planted more than 100,000 pecan trees on a vast property still operated by the Stahmann family. In 1965, Deane Stahmann Jnr came to Australia with the intention of creating the first commercial pecan operation in the southern hemisphere. He first planted trees at Gatton in Queensland and shortly after at the flagship property Trawalla near Moree in New South Wales. His dream of creating a new industry was realised in 1982 when the Toowoomba Processing Plant began supplying the finest quality processed pecan nut kernel from these farms to Australia and the world.
Webster Limited – the fourth oldest company in Australia – dating back to 1831 and is named for the founder’s nephew, Alexander George Webster, who was born in (what was then called) Van Diemen’s Land in 1830 later running the grain and wool business in 1856.
Throughout its long history, Webster Ltd has been involved in many aspects of agriculture from broad acre farming to forestry and fresh vegetables, rural supplies, transport and machinery and most recently tree nut farming.
Since the 1990s Webster has pioneered the Australian walnut industry and today represents more than 90% of local production from orchards in Swansea and the Murrumbidgee.
Now too, the farming activities encompass almonds following the acquisition of Sandy Valley in the Riverina district.
We enrich people’s lives by growing, processing, packaging and promoting the highest quality tree nuts while positively impacting our environments.
Stahmann Webster is proud to shine the spotlight on walnuts, pecans, macadamias and almonds — and why wouldn’t we, given how fabulous they are? We actively market our nuts in Australian and Southeast Asian markets, supporting product development and promotion for retail markets globally, all the while working with and supporting relevant industry bodies.
We are proud sponsors and participants of various activities and events such as Fairview on Trawalla, Australian Macadamia Society’s Industry Conferences and Australian Nut Industry Conference to name but a few.
Champions for local, Stahmann Webster not only operates locally across Australia, but we are locals too. We are proud to be part of communities across the country and actively support our neighbours. Please contact us so we can explore how we can assist your organisation.
