  • La Castanea Chestnut Producers
We first started growing Chestnuts in the Ovens Valley in Nth East Victoria in 1987. Since those early days we have grown to an orchard of over 1,000 trees producing over 10,000kg of high quality premium Chestnuts annually. We have various varieties ranging from early - mid - late season in a variety of sizes ranging from  Large, Extra Large and Jumbo. All of our Chestnuts are the best grafted varieties, easy peeling and great tasting. Our Chestnuts can be roasted, boiled, frozen or dried.
Supply usually starts 1st March till end of July (depending on the season). Our nuts are Organically grown and hand picked, and we dont use any chemicals or pesticides! Recently, we also started producing Chestnut flour and meal which is gluten free and can be used as wheat flour substitute in baking and pasta making. These will be listed as soon as they become available (early March 2021).
We also sell grafted Chestnut trees (bare rooted) in several varieties during the winter.
In addition we also sell local Walnuts (in shell), grown by our neighbour. These walnuts are current season and naturally air dried (not kiln dried) resulting in optimum freshness.
New for 2021 are Shiitake Mushroom logs grown on our own Chestnut wood.
logs These logs have been inoculated with Shiitake mycelium which after about one year will start producing numerous Shiitake Mushrooms several times a year several years.
