About US

"A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love."
Saint Basil

In 2005 Brent and Valorie Fadler started looking for land to plant the perfect orchard. They chose a piece of land that would grow sweet chestnuts and big wildlife! The Qing and Eaton Chestnut trees on Fadler Farm are located in northeast Chariton County Missouri. With the help of our two sons and their wives we harvest our nuts by hand, starting in mid September for approximately four weeks. We process our nuts by hand and sort and inspect each nut. We want to ensure you receive the highest quality chestnut possible. We wash, sort and package each nut as if it was going into our kitchen.

To keep your chestnuts fresh refrigerate them as soon as possible, treat them as a vegetable. Enjoy your chestnuts and let us know how you like them. Add them to your favorite recipe for an exciting new taste.

We are expanding our orchard each year, and we strive to use natural and eco-friendly practices throughout the chestnut orchard.
