A Family Tradition

Our family homesteaded a Laurel, Oregon farm in XXXX and have proudly farmed the land for seven generations. Paul, Chris, Sean, Quin, Jack, Ewan and Finn live and work on the family farm. Since planting hazelnuts and walnuts in XXXX, we’ve centered our operations on growing and selling high-quality nuts. We are proud to represent Oregon hazelnut growers in the world marketplace.
