Our harvest of the 2019 crop of Italian Marroni chestnuts got off to a slow start but chestnuts finally started dropping in a big way the week of October 5th and finished in late October. On October 11th, we began accepting orders for our Large size of marroni chestnuts and started shipping on Tuesday, October 15th. Late on Friday, October 18th, we started taking orders for other sizes and also out our official email notice to all of our mail list subscribers. We are now sold out of our Italian marroni chestnuts for 2019 and will be back in late September or early October 2020.

We now have a photo gallery - please take a virtual tour of our chestnut orchard by clicking on the Photo Gallery button to the left. We have included a video of our orchard taken during harvest.
Many long-time customers have been placing four or more chestnut orders each 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 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!
