Chestnut harvest in New Zealand, being a Southern Hemisphere country, runs from approximately the second week of March, until late April or early May. 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. Click here to find out more about our products.

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. For more information about our quality controls click here.
