Unlike much of the country the Pacific Northwest has been plagued by an abnormally cool Spring and Summer which will delay harvest.  As a result we anticipate beginning shipping mid-October.  We'll beginning shipping as soon as harvest begins.


BirdFest & Bluegrass

If you're in Ridgefield Saturday or Sunday Oct. 8 or 9 visit us at BirdFest downtown where everyone turns out to welcome fall and the return of wildlife that make the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge their winter home.  We'll have our dried products available there, fresh chestnuts (if there are any by then), and our unique chestnut woodturning.  In honor of the event we've even got chestnut duck calls.  No duck can turn them down!

If you have these problems you may want to take a look at a blog we've discovered that could be helpful in managing your diet.  It's the MFAA Interchange
