Gathering fresh Chinese chestnuts

 all the difference...

The best chestnuts come straight from the farm. We harvest, process, refrigerate, and ship our chestnuts quickly, providing the freshest possible products for our valued customers.

Chestnut farm in Sperry, Iowa


Four generations work and play on our family owned and operated farm, nestled in a secluded valley of Southeast 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 simultaneously 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. We look forward to sharing our fresh chestnuts with you!

OUR Plantings

On September 8, 2017, our very first seedlings went into the ground. With the planting of 500 trees, Valley Chestnuts was born. But this was only the beginning.

As of Spring 2024, we've established around 5000 trees - a portion of our overall goal.

OUR Progress

As we establish, maintain, and enlarge our orchards and anticipate each year's harvest season, we're busy on other fronts, too.

We've developed a processing line to clean, size, and inspect our chestnuts before shipping them out to our loyal customers.

OUR Pledge

Customer satisfaction is a core value at Valley Chestnuts. We want our customers to be happy, so we stand behind every bag of fresh chestnuts we sell. 


Order with confidence, knowing we'll go out of our way to ensure your satisfaction!

"Every chestnut  was perfect, came easily out of the shell and each was super.  I know I'll be buying more shortly."
