Received my chestnuts today and roasted some up right away. Wow!!
They are unbelievably delicious!
How long do supplies last? Would like to order more when I finish these. Ray, New York
My dad is 83 and has been roasting chestnuts since I was a kid.
You've spoiled him away from store-bought nuts,
and that's just fine with me.
We'll be celebrating Thanksgiving with Chanukah this year
(Thanksmukah!!),and this is going to be one of his presents.
All the best, Janet, NJ
We're so thankful our Whole Foods carried your chestnuts this year!
Every year I search for chestnuts for my husband as they're his favorite
holiday treat. We have waited 20 years to taste wonderfully flavorful
chestnuts such as yours. Thank you for growing this beautiful fruit
organically and sustainably. Our family would like to help harvest
next year, if that's possible. Free labor! Let us know!
Happy New Year! You've made our Christmas special. Jeff & Lesley, Colorado
My husband and I just received our second 10lb order of organic chestnuts this year.
Thank you for the best tasting chestnuts ever! We had no single bad chestnut.
A friend of ours gave us a bag of your nuts and they are delicious! Like eating candy. We just wanted to share the joy.
Just wanted to let you know that the chestnuts arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased! I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving! Katharine, New Orleans
Thank you! Thank you! Our family always has chestnuts in our stuffing-we love them- BUT this year I found your chestnuts and the holidays will never be the same again!! Your chestnuts are the best we have EVER had. No rotten ones in the bunch and they popped right out of their shells. We will never buy chestnuts from anyone else ever again. I will be ordering some to share for Christmas. Patricia, Colorado
We bought your chestnuts at the Albuquerque Whole Foods, and they were by far the best we've ever bought. Jeff, New Mexico
Thanks for growing some yummy Chestnuts this year. Great to see you guys sold out.
I grew up in Germany, and I’ve missed good chestnuts here for decades. Marc
We got some of your chestnuts at Open Harvest in Lincoln. Just had them for
Christmas Dinner. Absolutely the best chestnuts I've ever had.
Looking forward to next year's crop! Peter, Lincoln, NE
I received my 2nd order of your wonderful chestnuts today. Can't wait to roast them (and eat them)! The first eight pounds I ordered from you lasted for less than two weeks and they were of the best quality I had ever had! I am so glad that I discovered your farm and now I know where I will have my chestnuts every year! Best, Vivian, Iowa City
Happy holidays! I had your chestnuts (myself and my son's first chestnut experience) at the last Lawrence farmers' market, and we are in love. I would love to bring some to family I am visiting out of the area this weekend. Arnie, Lawrence, KS
Thank you for the absolutely delicious chestnuts. Between my coworkers and my family, I never seem to have enough chestnuts for myself! I probably have 2 pounds of chestnuts in my fridge and that's it! I really appreciate your beautiful chestnuts and look forward to the season every year. Joann, Boston
Hi Deb and Charlie, I just got the chestnuts I ordered the other day. I put several in the micro to test and I am happy to report they are great! I am so glad I found your chestnut farm on the internet. There is no comparison between your chestnuts and the chestnuts available in the stores around here (Delaware). John
Charles and Deborah, Thank you very much. Your chestnuts are great and each year I buy more! I can't thank you enough for the best chestnuts in the world! They are a big part of our holiday and football season. Keith, Denver
I received my chestnuts today and they are FANTASTIC!! Thank you again and again. Debby, Charlestown, WV
My chestnuts arrived yesterday and I couldn’t resist roasting some last night. I’ve never had such wonderful chestnuts. I cut them the way you suggest on your web site and roasted them covered, which is something I’ve never done before. Mom never covered them and I followed her tradition. Along with the chestnuts being extremely fresh, I believe covering them aids in the ease of peeling. Since I ordered 5 lbs., I’m now going to share them with cousins. They are absolutely the best I’ve ever tasted. Thanks a bunch and I wish you continued success. You will definitely see another order from me next year. Andrew, KC, Missouri
"We split the order between 3 different people. Out of the 10 lbs, there was not 1 bad chestnut. If I had bought from the local grocery store there would have been 2 to 3 bad out of every 10 chestnuts. These were GRRREAT. I have never had chestnut so fresh and tasty". John, Powell, TN
"For the past 30 years or so I depended on the only chestnuts available in the east: imported Italian chestnuts. I always dreaded the task of preparing them. Although they were large, the meat was contained by a membrane that usually was folded into the meat and required not only peeling, but breaking up and removing the internal membrane. Also, there was about a 5% rejection rate at Thanksgiving due to spoilage. By Christmas, the rejection rate was more like 20%. The nuts I bought from you are absolutely perfect! There were no rejects. There was no taking the meat apart to remove the membrane and the result was the sweetest nut I've tasted since I was a child in the 1940s. I have, I estimate, about 25% more useable chestnut meat than I can ever remember getting out of a pound. As long as you're in business, I'll be back. Do you mind if I tell my friends about your products?" Paula, Topeka, KS
"I love your chestnuts. I was in Chicago 3 weeks ago and bought some chestnuts there but they did not have the freshness like yours. Thank you and thank you. I ate so much chestnut last night and again this morning for breakfast." Toiy, Independence, MO
I want to receive the chestnut this week because I will be traveling on Monday to join my family for the Thanksgiving. And I want to bring along the delicious chestnuts for my family to enjoy.
Also want to let you know that I really enjoy your chestnut. And, I appreciate the hard work and sustainable farming you do to make the organic chestnut affordable for us to enjoy. Josephine, Woodside, NY
I value you and your products. I have never received chestnuts like yours--organic, fresh and so quickly1 Superb quality. Thanks again. Tomasz, Lodi, NJ
We've been lucky over the years to get some publicity. Want to read some articles or see a news story--here are the links:
(This last one is an LA Times article posted on Christmas Day 2003. We
cannot access the LA Times archives, but the Returned Peace
Corps picked up the story--and then they added a picture of some other kind of nut !! Go figure!)
