It is hard to believe that we are still waiting, waiting for the trees to drop any significant quantities of nuts. This is by far the latest harvest season we've experienced.
We can see the burs and nuts in the trees, so we know we will have a good crop. But due to the late harvest, we won't be able to selling and shipping until probably the second week in October.

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
