A word about chestnuts: although we harvest and sell fresh chestnuts in fall, we have peeled, frozen chestnuts and other chestnut products available year-round. As members of Michigan's own CGI (Chestnut Growers Inc.) cooperative, we have connections to provide gluten-free chestnut flour, dehydrated chestnut chips, (for breadings) and chestnut beer.

A word about pawpaw: pawpaw is a soft fruit that grows on a tree. Pawpaw is native to Michigan and other temperate areas of eastern North America, and is sometimes called a "Michigan Banana". Pawpaw fruit is light green when growing and turns yellow-brown in october when ripe. One peels the outer skin to get a soft custard flesh with large dark seeds (which are not eaten). A pawpaw is about 3 inches long and 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Some people string the seeds for beads.
