Nestled between the grandeur of the Cascade Mountains and the scenic Pacific Ocean lies Oregon’s Willamette Valley — one of the world’s premiere agricultural regions. It is in this fertile valley that 99 percent of American hazelnuts are grown. The rare combination of volcanic soils, moderate temperature and ample precipitation makes this the optimal region for hazelnut orchards. These thriving groves yield hazelnuts renowned globally for their unparalleled size, consistent quality, and distinct flavor. Oregon hazelnuts boast a robust, buttery smooth flavor and are the ideal accent for exquisite entrees or decadent desserts. They are also great by themselves as a healthy yet decadent snack. Oregon hazelnuts come in many forms, making them easy to eat and use: Natural Kernels: Ideal for candy and garnishing premium baked goods. Roasted Kernels: Perfect for snacking. Whole or Broken Kernels: Used in baked goods, candy, granolas and bars. Meal and Flour: Grain-free and gluten-free alternative enhances flavor as well as nutritional value. Diced: Provides an even distribution of the nut for uniform flavor, texture and appearance. Sliced: Thinly sliced to add rich flavor, garnish and crunch. Oil: Cold pressed, unfiltered and unrefined used as an alternative to olive and other cooking oils. Paste and Butter: Varieties include 100 percent hazelnut spread or with inclusions such as sugar. Inshell: Enjoy the traditional experience. The Oregon hazelnut industry is in the midst of the biggest growth period in its history. Since 2011, total acres of hazelnut trees planted in Oregon have nearly tripled to over 90,000. With many of those new trees just starting to reach maturity, our yield is over 70,000 tons and growing yearly.
