American Grown Fresh Chestnuts From Our Family Farm to You

"American Grown Fresh Chestnuts From Our Family Farm to You"

Our harvest of the 2022 crop of Italian Marroni chestnuts began on September 26th and we should begin taking orders by sometime in the first week of October once our supplies are adequate, possibly on Thursday or Friday (October 6th or 7th).  We also need to balance our work demands so that we still have enough time to harvest chestnuts daily as they ripen and fall from the trees.  We begin our sales with just one size until harvest slows down.  This year we will begin our sales with the Mediuim size.  Sorry, but we do not take advance orders or reservations.  Please follow here for updates.

Shipping Schedule:

Orders are usually shipped within two business days of being placed.  If a customer is located in a location which causes concerns due to hot weather, etc., we may delay shipping until the next Monday.  Sorry, but we do not take accept requests for orders to be shipped at later shipping dates (i.e., "please ship the week before Thanksgiving") as this places an additional logistics burden on us and also because we turn off our walk-in cooler as soon as we are sold out because of its high operating cost.  Orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail.  Upon advance request, we may be able to ship via USPS 2 or 3 day for an additional charge.

Italian Marroni, We are the only online source for these fine chestnuts which have become immensely popular with our customers since being introduced in 2005.  Flavor and texture of the three sizes offered are the same.  Roasting of the Medium size is faster while Large and Extra Large sizes involve less peeling to achieve the same net weight of kernels for enjoyment.  Note: Each and every chestnut passes over up to three dozen holes in our sorter to accurately sort our chestnuts in the sizes indicated below.

Medium Size - 1.125 to 1.25 inches in diameter, averaging 34 nuts per pound.  $8.00 per pound.  Available soon!

Large Size - 1.25 to 1.375 inches in diameter, averaging 24 nuts per pound.  $9.50 per pound.  Available approximately mid-October.

Extra Large Size - 1.375 or more inches in diameter, averaging 19 nuts per pound.  $11.00 per pound.  Very limit supply this year, available mid to late October.

Note: We ship chestnuts in mesh bags and in boxes with ventilation holes to reduce risk of mildew in transit.  Chestnuts are a high moisture nut and will lose some weight in transit and will lose additional weight during curing and roasting.  Please be assured that we weigh each order carefully at the time of shipment.

   
   

Review Cart

Online orders will be processed through a third party secure site where you can pay with your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover Card as well as bank account transfers.  You may adjust quantities when you get to the shopping cart page or return to this ordering page to add other items.

Unless prior arrangements have been made, orders are shipped via United States Postal Service Priority Mail. We have found this to be the most economical means to ship your chestnuts to you in a timely manner. With the USPS Flat Rate program we are able to ship up to 10 pounds of chestnuts anywhere in the United States for $16.00 and orders of 11 to 18 pounds can be shipped for $22.00. Note:  We do not accept orders for more than 36 pounds.

Mail Orders - We apologize, but we no longer accept orders sent to us by mail.  This requires more work for us and our very busy schedule does not allow us the spare time to handle this process.

If you have any questions at all, please e-mail us at harvey@chestnuts.us .  Please understand that responses may not be very prompt when we are in our peak days of harvesting and shipping.
