American Grown Fresh Chestnuts From Our Family Farm to You

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

We are now taking orders for our Italian Marroni varieties of chestnuts.  Inventory levels are still low as chestnut harvest is just getting underway but we've made this page available for those eager to start enjoying chestnut season.  We will begin taking orders for the Medium Size of Marroni once we've gotten past the peak of harvest sometime in early October.

Notice - Advance and held orders:  We do not accept orders for any product unless they are shown as available for ordering below.  Additionally, we do not hold orders for more than one week from the date the order is placed.  In other words, an order placed in early October will not be held for Thanksgiving delivery.  Our walk-in storage space gets filled to near capacity during harvest and our sales during harvest make it possible to properly refrigerate all of our crop.  Having to purchase a larger walk-in would increase our costs as well as our selling prices.  Also, we've found that it's just too easy to make mistakes in trying to maintain different sets of shipping lists for our small family farm.  Chestnuts should normally be able to be stored for at least a month in your own refrigerator at home if the instructions included with orders are followed.

Please note that when you place an order online, your billing address must match the address used for your credit card or bank account. You may use any address in the USA for your shipping address.

Unfortunately, we cannot ship chestnuts to the state of Oregon due to regulations there which would add approximately $100 to the cost of each shipment.

Review Cart

Online orders will be processed through a third party secure site where you can pay with your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and 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. *For California customers - All prices of taxable items include sales tax reimbursement computed to the nearest mill. Online ordering is available only for the continental United States. All other inquiries should be made by e-mail.

Unless prior arrangements have been made, orders are shipped via United States Postal Service Priority Mail (except chestnut knives purchased alone which are shipped via USPS First Class). 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 $11.30. This is about 33% of prior rates for many customers in the east! We also use "Large Flat Rate" boxes which can accommodate an order of 18 pounds at a shipping cost of $15.80. Note: For orders over 36 pounds, please e-mail for an accurate quote of shipping costs.

This year we are planning to ship most days of the week and attempting to ship orders within 48 hours of when the order was received.  During the heavy work load of harvest we may have to delay some orders by a day or two to ensure we have enough time to complete the daily harvest duties.  You will receive an email once your package's shipping label has been prepared and the email will include tracking information for your package.  Once shipped, nearly 100% of orders arrive in one to three business days.

Mail Orders - We recognize that some customers do not wish to make payments online. We suggest that you go ahead and create your shopping cart and print it out. You may then mail it along with your check and we'll ship out your order when we receive payment. However, please send us an e-mail to let us know that your order is coming so that we may reserve your purchase items for you. If you're going to mail or fax a credit card purchase, please complete the Order Form.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to e-mail us at harvey@chestnuts.us .  Once harvest is complete, we will also be able to take phone calls but ask that you use e-mails to communicate in the meantime.

If your purchase is a gift being shipped to someone else, please e-mail us at harvey@chestnuts.us to let us know and let us know what message you'd like to be included with your shipment. This will also alert us to exclude the invoice from the package.
