chestnuts and timber
In 2016 we started our journey in chestnuts by planting 9 grafted chestnut trees on the rolling hills of Moltke Township in Presque Isle county. About 900 chestnuts trees comprise our growing orchard.
Our farm has been home to several different teams of oxen over the years. We have used the teams to harvest select cut timber from our 100 acres of northern hardwood. Currently we do not have any oxen on the farm.
Starting this chestnut dream as an experiment we are the farthest North and East of any chestnut orchard in Michigan.
Welcome to our chestnut farm! We plan to keep this section updated with all we do in the orchard through out the year. Our hope is that those who are interested in our orchard or starting one of their own can see what establishment and growth of chestnuts involves.
