Oregon hazelnuts

We now have about 22.5 acres of blight resistant hazelnuts under cultivation near Elkton along the Umpqua River. In 2018 the first 7.5 acres are coming into production and the next 15 acres were planted in 2017-18. The farm in in the process of gaining organic certification for the first planting. The orchard is established on the bottom-land of the fertile Kellogg Crescent on the Fisher Farm along the Umpqua River in northern Douglas County. The Fisher Farm was founded by Loznak's in-laws in 1868 after they traveled the Oregon Trail.
