These chocolate covered hazelnuts from Freddy Guys are the best snack!
Freddy Guys is a family orchard located in the beautiful Willamette Valley of Western Oregon. They LOVE their trees and I think these are the best hazelnuts in the US and are on par with Piedmonte Hazelnuts from Italy!
I've know Barb for years and have been to their orchard twice. They package all their our hazelnuts ourselves and sell them direct to consumers, eliminating the middle man in the process of getting the nuts from the orchard to your fork. This results in both a better price for you consumer and a better share of the profit for the farmer, not to mention freshness and flavor that is unmatched. Freddy Guys distributes their hazelnuts directly to businesses throughout Oregon and at farmer’s markets in Portland.
Their orchard is managed according to integrated production guidelines developed at Oregon State University. They consult with a horticultural extension agent and conscientiously practice earth-friendly farming.
