Throughout its history, FICO and Green Valley Pecan Company have had a strong record of giving back to the community. They donated FICO land for employee housing, a
church and set aside property for a future hospital to serve the Sahuarita and Green Valley communities. FICO also provided the land for the Sahuarita Unified School District’s Walden Grove High School.For 10 years, FICO hosted the Sahuarita Pecan Festival, a family-oriented fun event. This event highlighted and promoted awareness of local non-profits.
A focus of FICO’s community involvement promotes a healthy and active lifestyle. It continues to host annual running events on the farm, which support area community organizations.Also, in partnership with Pima County and Union Pacific Railroad, FICO donated an easement for the Adamson-Catino Trail, graded the trail, and provided signage. The trail opened to the public in early 2022.
