Locally grown chestnuts for sale

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 | Posted by

It is a little known secret that you can buy fresh chestnuts in the west county. Colossal variety chestnuts are now getting ripe and Green Valley Chestnut Ranch in Forestville is open for you-pick on Saturdays in the month of October from 1 to 4 p.m. If you can’t get there you can order on-line at chestnutranch.com and the growers will ship them to you via UPS. The website provides directions to get to the ranch, the history of the ranch (it dates from 1854) and has lots of great recipes for using your chestnuts as well as directions on how to roast them when you get them. What better way to treat your Thanksgiving turkey than to give is a roasted chestnut dressing?

    Hey Folks, I have a better use for those chestnuts, roasted or not. Feed them to the turkeys and have a vegan dinner.
