    We always enjoy the chestnuts we purchase each year. They are sweet and a tradition that we look forward to at our home.

    I just received my second order for this year on Dec. 5 (after finishing the 5# I purchased in October). The second order is also of excellent quality. I am so happy to have found Chestnut Ridge after years of frustration and disappointment with trying to purchase chestnuts in local stores. Here is another way to cook them for a quick snack. Use a shallow microwavable dish with a lid (e.g. corningware). Put in enough water to just cover the bottom (1/4 inch deep or less). Cut chestnuts completely in half (sharp long kitchen knife best). Place chestnut halves cut side down in dish (single layer deep). Put lid on dish and microwave for about 2 -3 minutes (until water is boiling and steam coming out of dish). Take chestnuts out of the dish a few at a time (to avoid having them dry out) and eat when cool enough. The shell will just pop off many of the halves as they cook. For the rest, you can just squeeze the shell and the nuts are easily removed. This is a modification of a technique introduced by Badgersett Farms in MN.

    I have over the years purchased chestnuts from several other farms but Chestnut Ridge product is the best around. They are tender, tasty and above all they always peel easily (the inner skin does not stick to the nut). Something other chestnuts have not resulting in having to throw out more than we ate. Chestnut Ridge is the only place to buy chestnuts. I wish we could have them all year round.

    Purchased multiple times last year and this year, including the large, X Large, Seeds and wildlife bulk. All produces are great and the people are very nice to deal with. Thank you!

    If you order these nuts up to Monday morning they will go out Monday and you should have them in Wed’s mail. I bought some to eat and some to plant. Had to reorder because I ate the first order with my loving mother in law who cooked them for me.

    I ordered 10 lbs of large nuts and shared with my family and friends. Everyone loves the taste and freshness. Some of my friends placed their orders immediately. CRPC must have done a wonderful job in growing chestnuts. I will keep a dozen for seed planting next year.

    I ordered 2 lbs of extra large and 3 lbs of large chestnuts. Shipment was very fast and the nuts arrived fresh and are very tasty.
    Good company. Thanks.

    This is my first purchase from Chestnut Ridge and I am very happy with the result. Like many of the reviewers have noted, it is very difficult to find chestnuts in my local grocery stores. They are often not available until late November or December and usually 50% or more of them are moldy or otherwise not edible. The nuts from Chestnut Ridge are very tasty, easy to peel, and 100% good nuts (of ones I have cooked so far). I expect that I will be ordering from them every fall from now on.

  13. Fritz Lentz

    Finally a great source for fresh chestnuts! Not a bad one among them, even though I ordered late in the season (end of December). I see now they are sold out. We received a steel roasting pan for Christmas to use in the fireplace, and a dedicated chestnut scoring knife. 10 to 15 minutes over hot embers does it. In the past we’ve had no luck buying chestnuts in stores, usually most are spoiled. These are great! Will order earlier next season….

    Put them in peatmoss in container in frig. hope to plant this spring ,will follow up with what happens

    This is my second order this year from Chestnut Ridge. My first order was the first time anyone in our area had even seen a chestnut (aside from a select few senior adults in my community when they are small kids). AMAZING!!!! We love chestnuts! Love the flavor
    I placed a second order just over a week ago. The USPS was late with delivery, and also delivered to the wrong house on Saturday evening, but my awesome neighbor got the package to us. Put them straight into the fridge and plan on opening them up tonight.

    Went through 4 lbs. real fast. DEEEEELICIOUS. Had to order 5 more lbs. so order at least twice as much as you think you need and save on shipping.

  17. Linda Caldwell (verified owner)

    Tried to comment about great you guys wouldn’t let me but suffice it to say you guys are absolutely awesome I think everybody should order their chestnuts from you this is her second year ordering they are nothing short of spectacular!

  18. Linda Caldwell (verified owner)

    This is my second year ordering from you. I want to thank you so very much for your trees and love for these wonderful gifts from the Creator!! You are AWESOME!!!!! I want everyone to get their chestnuts from YOU!!!

    I have been making chestnut dressing at Thanksgiving for many years (50, in fact), depending on nut availability, If I have found them at all in grocery stores, most chestnuts have come in small shrink-wrapped Styrofoam packages, and the nuts are visibly moldy on their exteriors. Or I have found them in open bins along with other nuts, unrefrigerated (a no-no). These chestnuts from years past have always been disappointing: regularly moldy, hard as rocks, and/or blemished, sometimes requiring half of them to be discarded in order to get any to use. Last year, in a grocery store, I stumbled upon a package of chestnuts in a clear package with the farm name and website on it. This was the first time I had ever seen chestnuts marketed with the grower’s name. I figured I was in for a treat. And yes I was! The nuts were the freshest, most blemish-free, tastiest of any chestnut I have ever husked, roasted, and eaten. They were perfect! This year, because I had the package label, I was able to order chestnuts directly from the farm for my annual chestnut dressing for Thanksgiving. Great wonderful nuts once again, shipped incredibly fast. Chestnut Ridge is a terrific resource for all of us who love chestnuts, because now, with the help of online orders, we can purchase them directly from the farm. THANK YOU!

    Awesome Service! Great tasting nuts! I highly recommend! I’ve been ordering nuts for planting for the past 3 or 4 years, and would end up eating a good portion of my supposed planting nuts, so this year I just ordered both seed for planting and several pounds of large nuts by the pound to eat. Both me and my wife love them and have been tearing them up…lol

  21. Jack Bunce

    This is my second year to order and my package arrived yesterday, a day early. The chestnuts look great and are refrigerated as directed for the holidays. Thank you for your prompt attention to my order. I will most definitely order again next year.

  22. Michelle Lee (verified owner)

    The best chestnuts, very tasty. Quick shipping.

  23. Mitch (verified owner)

    Purchased these to plant and eat. John from Lake Erie Chestnuts recommended highly. Easy transaction and quick delivery.

  24. Josepheconway (verified owner)

    Quick shipping, great taste! Only had one bad nut out of two pounds, and the rest were absolutely delicious!!
    When I was young, we would sit around my grandmothers table enjoying chestnuts.
    I am brought back to those moments. Although I remember discarding many more chestnuts. I will be ordering again and again!!

  25. Sheila Conatser (verified owner)

  28. Talmadge Smith (verified owner)

    The nuts were very good this year!!! They were very sweet and easy to peel!! I will continue to buy from you year after year!! Hope you have a great year and sell lots of nuts!!!

  29. Bruce Howard

    have used for several years – prompt arrival. great for the holidays, we like to microwave them as is quick and easier than roasting- virtually no wastage if eaten by mid January, otherwise they will start to dry out and become hard.

    Just opened my shipment of your Chestnuts and can’t stop eating them, brought back childhood memories of roasting them in a frying pan.

  31. Luisa (verified owner)

    I have been ordering from Chestnut Ridge of Pike County for the past few years since I cant seem to find chestnuts where I live. The chestnuts are always fresh and we never get a rotted one in the bunch. Worth the money.

  32. Grant (verified owner)

    Very good product, only a few bad ones out of four pounds!

  33. Bill Smith (verified owner)

    Chestnut Ridge is way better than store bought. About 90 to 92% good nuts in every order. Store bought: 75 to 50% in each order. I wish you would allow visitors.

  34. Kimbra (verified owner)

    First time ordering chestnuts online. Great product and service! I like the recipe idea sheet included. I’m trying the Chestnut spinach dip at Christmas. Thanks

  35. Dan (verified owner)

    Received chestnuts today just before thanksgiving,They all look real good.Thanks for the quick device and quality.

  36. Marco (verified owner)

    It took me a long time to decide which words to use to describe the chestnuts from “Chestnut Ridge”. After writing and erase my review multiple times I decided to go with the so classic: “OMG”. The flavor is amazing, sweet and perfect. They peel easily and the large size cook in such an uniform way it is just pleasant. It is my third time ordering from “Chestnut Ridge of Pike County” and every year it gets better. I love the new website, so easy to use, lots of information and a safe payment method which is always important. I had chestnuts all over the world and I’m glad to be a returning customer at Chestnut Ridge. Thank you for giving back to America a great chestnut. My thanksgiving is not the same without them roasted on the table. From an italian chef, thumbs up!!!

  37. Laura

    I can’t wait every year to have these chestnuts!! I have had chestnuts in France and Italy and these by far surpass in taste and quality. They are so sweet and delicious and I have never had a bad one in the bunch. Great product and excellent service!
