We are constantly experimenting with different and uncommon types of nuts. These varieties are selected from our experience growing nut trees in a short season cold winter climate. Most are widely adapted and will do even better in warmer areas of the country. This page has a great selection of nut trees for your home or permaculture plantings. From almonds to walnuts, nut trees are high in both nutritional and monetary value. Some nut trees will offer years of valuable nut harvests and top it all off with an even more valuable wood harvest, such as walnut and pecan. Click on the links below below to take you to the page for each species.
We currently are not growing many nut trees and what we have are 1-2 year seedlings. Email for availability. The links below have been left for informational purposes
