To our customers: October 22, 2020
We are completely sold out. If you did not get chestnuts this season, we are as disappointed as you are, but there is simply no way for us to make up for a reduced harvest.
If you are in Lawrence, the Community Mercantile and Checkers Grocery have our chestnuts in stock. Whole Foods and 888 International in the Kansas City area also have our chestnuts, as well as the Whole Foods stores in the Rocky Mountain region.
Charlie started planting chestnut trees on the 20-acre field in 1995, following organic practices from the beginning. Chestnut Charlie’s has been certified organic since 1998. Being organic is Charlie’s uncompromising condition to farming—that he contribute no synthetic chemicals to the environment. The tree project is surrounded by conventional corn/soybean farms so we planted and maintain a buffer/shelterbelt of mixed tree species around the perimeter boundary. Our tree project now has approximately 1500 nut trees under organic culture within the protective buffer.Our Tree Project
