Badgersett Research Corporation:
Woody Agriculture research and development

With roots going back to 1978, Badgersett Research Corporation works on bringing "Woody Agriculture" into the mainstream world of full scale staple food production. Besides selling the nuts we grow, we breed and sell seedlings of hybrid hazelnuts and hybrid chestnuts, and we are involved in all aspects of commercializing these crops, from developing machinery and harvest procedures to consumer products and marketing.

Held nearly every spring at Eagle Bluff, the two-day short course is an in-depth event covering details of both the theory behind and practice of Woody Agriculture crop production. You'll learn considerable information focused on hazelnut production, as well as some chestnut and hickory-specific lectures. Attendance is highly recommended for current and potential serious producers.

We're still taking orders for the 2014 planting season!

Information about Woody Agriculture and our hybrid hazelnuts & chestnuts

Start here if you're new to Badgersett for information about who we are and what we do.

Our New-Ish Badgersett Growers Blog is the best place to look for the latest updates- and of course you can subscribe to this feed to keep better up to date.

We sell several varieties of our own delicious, homegrown, pesticide- and herbicide-free nuts. Harvest is in late summer and early fall, and nuts sell out very soon thereafter. If you want to spend your holidays roasting chestnuts over an open fire while munching on fresh hazelnut cookies, place your orders early, as we usually sell out!

You've read the info and given it some thought (and perhaps sampled some of our nuts), and you'd like put in your own plants. Our hazel plants sell out quickly, so place your orders far in advance of the next planting season, and allow substitutes for the best options.
