Missouri Chestnut Roast

This Saturday you can be sure and find me at the 5th Annual Chestnut Roast in New Franklin and I hope to see many of you there as well.

The Missouri Chestnut Roast, is held annually in October and is becoming a premier family-oriented event. The event is an outstanding opportunity to introduce families and landowners to the broad range of possibilities and benefits agroforestry practices can provide.

Hundreds of visitors each year enjoy their first sample of sweet, Missouri-grown roasted chestnuts, along with a variety of products featuring locally-grown black walnuts and pecans, recipes and nutritional information to pique their interest in purchasing nut products.

Take a look at the Chestnut Roast Photo Gallery.
