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.

An Oklahoma Chestnut

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.

Valley Chestnuts LogoThree generations reside on our family-owned and operated chestnut farm in a secluded valley of SE Iowa. In an agricultural state best known for its corn and soybeans, we've discovered a crop that's even better matched to our loamy soil, broken-up patches of land, and narrow valley roads not suitable for large equipment: The Chestnut.

Chestnuts afford us the privilege of doing something we love in a place we love: cultivating family relationships as we establish and nurture a valuable crop. As we work to steward our land and revive rich chestnut traditions in America, we're gratefully establishing traditions of our own.

As a family, we're committed to excellence and are pleased to provide quality products that reflect our high standards and values. To learn more about our operation and products, please visit our website. We look forward to sharing our chestnuts with you!

Chestnut Charlie's Organic Nuts

PO Box 1166, Lawrence, KS 66044 | | 785-841-8505

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 25 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 1200 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 ( The cooperative now sells both culinary chestnuts and my chestnut nursery stock.

Mountain Grown Chestnuts, LLC

205 Beelog Road, Burnsville, NC 28714 | 828-678-9342

Yancey County is known as the most rugged and isolated of NC mountain counties, containing several of the highest peaks in the Eastern U.S. What has been lost through the years is that Yancey was also once known for its extensive American chestnut forests. A 1925 survey estimated that 30-50% of county forest was American chestnut, noting the best stands occurred between 2,500’ and 4,500’ elevation. With most of the county in this range, the climate, soil, and terrain made it well suited for these trees to prosper. This is where scientist Ron Fritz has started this small orchard of Dunstan chestnuts. On a steep, northwest facing slope at 2,600’+ elevation, irrigated by the plentiful artesian well water, this young orchard is expected to produce small retail quantities beginning in 2021. What Ron hopes to do is recreate a nut that emulates the sought-after local delicacy so prevalent here pre-blight.

210 E. Lane Street, Brooklet, GA 30415 | | 912-682-7248

In late 2013, Rose Torielli decided to retire from Ford Motor Company and start a chestnut farm. With her investment and her sister Donna McKenna's “sweat equity”, Nuthouse Farm, Inc. was born in Newington, Georgia. We had grown up eating chestnuts every fall and missed them here in the South where most chestnuts are imported and then stored incorrectly in grocery stores so they are dry or spoiled when you eat them. We wanted to help bring chestnut production back to America and join the growing number of farmers who have discovered this wonderful nutritious nut. We even have a little family history with chestnuts. Our great-aunt, Italia, had a chestnut orchard back in Italy, where our family is from. Donna's many grandchildren chip in to help. Now, our trees have begun bearing nuts so we can begin to share them with chestnut lovers everywhere. We will keep everyone posted when they are available.

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.
