The Melcher family has been in the business of growing hazel­nuts for over 50 years. Ken & June Melcher began farming hazelnuts in 1957 on a 40-acre farm in their home town of St. Paul, Oregon. It was one of the largest filbert orchards in the Willamette Valley at the time.

As second generation farm­ers, we now farm 300 acres of hazelnuts. In 2000, we expanded our business to include packaged, ready to eat hazelnuts, named after the original farmers, Ken and June Melcher. Ken & June’s product line includes raw, dry roasted, and roasted & salted hazelnuts, as well as a delicious selection of chocolate coated hazelnuts includ­ing milk, dark, & white chocolate coated as well as a deliciously unique Marion berry candy coated hazelnut.  We also offer a variety of gift boxes; great for any occasion, as well as our locally sourced fruit jams.

Our hazelnut products are freshly grown and packaged here in the great Willamette Valley of Oregon and can be shipped anywhere within the United States. We look forward to you enjoying our products! As a family owned and oper­ated small business, we take great pride in providing a quality, locally grown product for our cus­tomers to enjoy all year round
