----from our family to yours----


OUR Chestnut Farm...

Chestnut trees

Four generations work and play on our family--owned and operated chestnut 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 2022, we've established more than 3200 trees -- a portion of our overall current goal.

OUR Progress

As we establish, maintain, and enlarge our orchard and look forward to our first harvest, we're busy on other fronts too.

We've installed a processing line to clean, size, inspect, & bag fresh chestnuts, and we'll continue to offer produce from trusted, local growers in Southeast Iowa.

Choose from a variety of sizes:


Chestnuts roasting on an open fire evoke feelings of festivity and cheer, but they aren't just for the holidays!

Unlike other nut varieties, chestnuts should be cooked, but they can be prepared in a variety of ways. Try them in soups, pastas, desserts, and more for special variations of your favorite sweet or savory dishes!

The best chestnuts aren't sold at the market; they come straight from the farm.  By harvesting, processing, and shipping our chestnuts quickly, we provide the freshest products possible for our valued customers.

I ordered chestnuts from three different farms and I believe the best chestnuts came from your farm.

You guys are great and obviously consumer friendly. Received chestnuts yesterday and they are wonderful.

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