We want people to learn Chestnut varieties, especially our favourite ‘de Coppi’, the best Italian variety for flavour and easy peeling.
Helen and David McIntyre
David and Helen have been growing organic chestnuts for over 17 years & gained NASAA certification in 2013.
The property, ‘The Garden in the Forest’, is situated at 820m on the Stanley Plateau in the foothills of the Victorian mountains.
It consists of 16 hectares of remnant montane native forest and 6 hectares of orchard, arboretum and garden. We offer only the best variety chestnut for internet sales, the “De Coppi Marone”. This is the classic Marone de Susa from northern Italy. This ancient variety has the best flavour, texture and peeling qualities.
