Fresh Michigan Chestnuts

No genetically modified chestnut trees were used in the production of our chestnuts; always natural.

Michigan-Grown Chestnuts are the Sweetest Tasting chestnuts and remain a flavorful Gluten-Free food that is a treat for everyone.

People with wheat allergies, such as Celiac Disease, may benefit from this tasteful addition to their diet, while Vegetarians and Vegans alike will enjoy the unique recipes that can be made from this sunshine-created food.

Chestnuts contain proteins and have the lowest fat content of any edible nut. Chestnuts are full of vitamins, B-complexes including folates, and many minerals. Chestnuts have always been and will always remain an excellent food.

Those looking for an all-natural product with no preservatives will find chestnut to be an excellent food.

They are a good source of fiber and the few fats they have are known to be a rich source of mono-unsaturated fatty acids, which help lower total LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL (good cholesterol).

Chestnuts are relatively low in calories when compared to other natural seeds and nuts. Browse our product line to learn more about our Michigan-grown chestnuts.

Instead, dump it in a large cardboard box, along with others, close it up for a week, and upon opening the box, you will see the burs have had time to mature a bit more and the nuts fall out now. Some burs may have been empties and still are closed. Throw those out. ... See MoreSee Less
