Our 2018 crop of Italian Marroni chestnuts is developing well and we expect a large harvest, though we expect harvest to be a bit later than last year. We hope to have marroni available for ordering sometime in early October. Please sign up for our email notices (fill out form below for new crop updates).
We also grow several trees of an early French chestnut variety, Bouche de Betizac. These are the earliest and largest chestnuts we grow and we do have some of these available for ordering immediately. Since our supply of this is fairly small, we take orders for these only by email (we could too easily sell more than we have available if we offered them on our ordering page. These are all from 1.375 inches up to 2 inches in diameter and priced at $7.00 per pound. Orders are subject to 5 pound minimum and shipping is $13.00 for orders of 5-10 pounds and $18.00 for orders of 11-18 pounds. If you'd like to order these for shipping during the week of September 24th, please send an email to us at email@example.com and we will send a PayPal invoice via email to complete your order.

Many long-time customers have been placing four or more chestnut orders a year for the past several years. Won't you please join our "family" of customers?
Read an expert opinion! The food magazine, Eating Well, published an article in 2007 calling us "Our Favorite Chestnut Grower!" You may read the article by clicking HERE. The October 2005 edition of Sunset magazine suggested purchasing chestnuts directly from the grower to get the best quality and we agree! By buying your chestnuts directly from the grower, you're getting the freshest chestnuts possible. Our chestnuts have also been written about in articles in the Los Angeles Times, and several other publications.
Please check out the testimonials from other customers who have been very pleased with the quality of our chestnuts. The quality of our chestnuts and detail to customer service are the primary reasons our customers keep coming back. Each year many customers have placed four or more orders, with many buying more than 50 pounds each!
Our fresh chestnuts are sweet and are enjoyed by everyone whether they prefer to prepare them by roasting, boiling, or including them in their favorite recipe. Some customers also enjoy eating our chestnuts raw. If you are concerned that you don't quite know how to cook chestnuts, don't worry because we include storage, preparation, and roasting instructions with all new orders. Our chestnuts are among the largest available anywhere and are favored over those found elsewhere by our established customers. Although hand harvesting requires extra work, we believe this helps maintain top quality. Our chestnuts are washed, sorted, and refrigerated immediately after harvest to ensure freshness for several months after harvest. Buying directly from us, the grower, ensures you get the freshest chestnuts possible.
In 2005 we first offered a limited quantity of Italian Marroni varieties grown on our family chestnut farm. They have continued to be an extremely popular item and, because of customer demand, in 2007 we began the process of grafting more of our trees to these varieties and now produce a large supply each year.
Thanks for visiting!
