Chestnut Field Day

Carrollton, Ohio 

Friday, September 30, 2022
2-4 p.m.

Learn about this SARE-funded grant project to develop value-added products made from Grade B chestnuts, tour the nut processing facility, sample chestnut products, and more!

The Appalachian Staple Foods Collaborative is partnering with four farmers from the Route 9 Cooperative and two local mills to develop value-added products, including a fine chestnut flour made from Grade B chestnuts.

The demand for culinary chestnuts far exceeds the supply from the region and, thanks to a recent grant from North Central SARE, they are researching and developing fine flour and other products from chestnuts grown at Route 9 Cooperative. While Grade B chestnuts don't immediately offer the same return as fresh chestnuts, they hold promise if processed into a value-added product. After a first milling day at Shagbark Seed & Mill in Athens, they distributed fine and medium flour to bakers, chefs, and brewers from the region and beyond.

Join this free event to learn more about their work and try a sampling of chestnut products. Stick around after the tour to harvest some chestnuts for yourself!
