Quality New Zealand Chestnuts and Chestnut Products

Chestnut Traders has been established to promote and market quality New Zealand chestnuts and chestnut products to both local and worldwide markets. We are able to supply fresh chestnuts (in season) and processed product. To find out more about us click here.

Unfortunately, the Chestnut Farm is closed for the 2023 season, due to the significant damage following Cyclone Gabrielle. In any event, much of the juvenille chestnuts were blown off the tress early.

We look forward to seeing you next year!!

Chestnut harvest in New Zealand, being a Southern Hemisphere country, runs from approximately the second week of March, until late April or early May (in southern parts of the country). Most growers do not store fresh nuts unless thay have reasonably strong pre-negotiated sales orders. Sales contracts are generally arranged between December and February.

We are strong supporters of the New Zealand Chestnut Council (NZCC). This is the "recognised industry body" in New Zealand, and undertakes a number of overall industry functions. Of particular importance, NZCC issues recommendations for orchard hygiene and harvesting and storage protocols. Chestnut Traders insist that their suppliers meet these, as a minimum.
