NOTE:  Our flour mills have only been used for chestnut flour, so if you are gluten intolerant you can be assured that our chestnut flour is pure.

NOTE:  Our chestnut flour is milled from dried nuts that do not contain pellicle -- that brown skin that covers the nut beneath the shell.  The pellicle contains tannins that give the flour a bitter taste.  As a result our flour is sweeter.

CAROLYN'S WOODSHOP -- Benjamin Franklin is famous for his saying, "Waste not, want not," and when we first replaced a number of trees, Carolyn wanted Old Ben to be proud of her, and decided she could do something with the wood that would be better than turning it into firewood.  She had been told by wood turners that chestnut was a terrible wood to work with but she just had to see for herself.  What she discovered was that they were right, but she also saw that chestnut was a wood with tremendous character and a unique grain.  Is it easy to work with?  No, but that just makes it more of a challenge.

ABOUT CHESTNUT SIZE -- There are NO SIZE STANDARDS for chestnuts in the U.S.  As a result growers can call their nuts any anything they want and not be wrong.  The most reliable way for the consumer to know what they're getting is to describe them by size as we do, and that can only be accurately done if a sorter is being used.  The majority of growers give you only a verbal description.  What we describe as a Large is called a Jumbo by some growers.  For us a large is 1.25-1.5" in diameter as it goes through the sorter.  What we call a Jumbo is greater than 1.5" and there aren't many of them.  So as a consumer, you need to ask.
