Pine Patch Tree Farm

(Website) (Email) Phone: 208-793-2237

The Pine Patch Tree Farm is a small integrated tree farm growing several tree / forest products. Started in 1975 by Bruce and Linda Reay, and their three children, they first grew Christmas trees and in 2000 began replacing them with Colossal Chestnut trees. Finally in 2004, a 132 acre commercial timber tree farm was added to the ownership. Obviously, the Reays are dedicated, knowledgeable, and competent “tree people”. Whether we are providing a tree product to a Christmas tree customer, to a Chestnut connoisseur, or to a sawmill, we strive to provide quality products and user information to our customers.
The Chestnut operation is just beginning commercial production. All of the tree cultural and irrigation activities are accomplished by hand. Integrated pest management techniques, to include biological pest control, are used where ever possible. We like to refer to ourselves as “natural tree farmers”. Nuts are harvested by hand as they fall from the trees. All nuts waiting to be shipped are stored in a temperature regulated “cooler unit”. If you are an accomplished “Chestnut connoisseur” we would like to supply you with quality Chestnuts, or if you are a “Chestnut neophyte” we would like to help you start a delicious and most rewarding “culinary journey”.

Washington Chestnut Co.

Washington Chestnut Company has been farming in Everson, WA for over 20 years. Chestnuts and chestnut trees are our only commercial products, and our core expertise. We chose chestnut trees because of their low impact on the soils as compared to annual crops. Our passion is producing healthy foods with a positive impact on the environment. 

We offer fresh chestnuts for sale right from the farm in northwest Washington State. Orders can be shipped to anywhere in the USA. Chestnuts grown in Northwest Washington experience a cool growing season resulting in sweeter chestnuts, just like the chestnuts from the mountains in France and Italy. From food for your table to ingredients at the finest restaurants and resorts, our chestnuts fill all the needs.

We also serve as one of the largest producers of chestnut trees in all of the Americas. We have over 30 different named cultivars to provide the best chestnut trees for most anywhere in the USA. From New England to Southern California, our chestnut trees will do well anywhere along the way. Our production facilities are USDA inspected and are in full compliance with state and federal nursery regulations. (2016)

An Oklahoma Chestnut

Lucas Farms began operation in June 1990. Our original intention was for a “gentleman’s ranch,” complete with a cow calf beef operation and hay production. In 2009, we began our search for alternative, sustainable agriculture. Our first effort was to establish a fruit orchard complete with apple, peach, pear, jujube, and many other fruit trees.

As we searched for a nut tree, we realized our soil composition was not compatible with the Oklahoma state tree, pecan. Also, we sought a species that produced nuts much quicker and did so annually. Finally, we looked for a species with an established market, under-served by domestic growers.

After visiting other chestnut orchards throughout the United States and China, we established a nursery in Oklahoma and began evaluating 80 Chinese chestnut cultivars. We found that many could not succeed due to our unique soil and weather conditions. Our efforts have yielded five varieties which are successfully growing at our chestnut orchards, located in Oklahoma and Tennessee. Since then, Chinese chestnut trees propagated in Oklahoma are being grown throughout the USA: in the Southwest, Northeast, and Southeast.

Whether you are looking for the highest quality chestnuts for consumption, desire a few trees in your front yard, or wish to establish a chestnut orchard to meet local consumer needs, we want to hear from you.

Charlie NovogradacAs a trial project, Charlie NovoGradac started planting chestnut trees in 1995 on old farm ground north of Lawrence, Kansas.  Inspired by J. Russell Smith’s Tree Crops, a Permanent Agriculture, Charlie believes that tree crops can help heal the planet, reduce erosion and capture atmospheric carbon while sustainably producing healthy food. .
In 20 years we have learned that the Chinese chestnut species and Chinese-American hybrid trees thrive better in our soil and climate. Charlie is always taking notes, rating cultivars for quality and production, removing inferior trees and grafting or top-working others with named cultivars and our own superior selections. The orchard now has about 1500 chestnut trees on 20 acres.
We hire local people to gather chestnuts by hand daily through September and October.  Chestnuts are float-tested, inspected, sorted for size, and refrigerated promptly as they fall in order to maintain the highest quality. Our area remains chestnut weevil free, helped by our clean-harvest practices. In season, Chestnut Charlie’s sells fresh chestnuts by mail and also thru local and regional health food stores. We are certified organic. Our customers, including people from the “old country” who grew up eating chestnuts, praise our easy-peeling, high-quality, sweet chestnuts.

I have been a full-time chestnut grower since 1984. At that time, my father's chestnut-growing hobby had gotten out of control and it became my business. He had planted his first chestnut trees in 1957. Chestnuts do well on our well-drained hilltops of Appalachian Ohio. Since the 1980s, I have evaluated thousands of chestnut seedlings and cultivars representing all species of Castanea, including both pure species and hybrids. In terms of nut quality and adaptation, I've found that the Chinese chestnut is the best species for us. In the early 1990s, my neighbors planted thousands of Chinese chestnut seedlings over about 50 acres. The production from these trees combined with production from my trees was the basis for forming a chestnut marketing cooperative, Route 9 Cooperative, in 2010 (www.route9cooperative.com). The cooperative now sells both culinary chestnuts and my chestnut nursery stock. Visit us online.

An Oklahoma Chestnut

Mountain State Chestnuts had its start in 1986 in response to an article in the National Wildlife magazine, ‘Is This The Chestnut’s Last Stand?’ It told the story of the American chestnut tree and current efforts to save it. Our initial efforts focused on following the backcross breeding program utilized by the American Chestnut Foundation to produce American chestnut trees with high levels of resistance to chestnut blight.
While this is still a goal we are working towards, we have noticed that when using certain American trees as parents, we have produced hybrids that have sufficient levels of resistance to blight with outstanding traits. Some of these hybrids exhibit vigorous growth with timber form, while others are orchard type trees that produce excellent nuts. We hope to eventually transition part of our orchards to ‘nut production’ with some of our better hybrids.

We encourage people to check out our website to see what’s going on at Mountain State Chestnuts.
