Great Reasons to Join Today

  1. Receive beautiful Arbor Day Farm Hazelnut bushes for planting at home.

    These Arbor Day Farm hybrid hazels grow to more than 10 feet tall and are renowned for early nut bearing, with some producing their first crop in their third or fourth year. Bushes will be sent at the right time for planting in your area.

  2. Participate in a vital national effort to help combat climate change.

    Woody plants are three times more effective at capturing solar energy than annual plants. This means the use of woody plants like hazelnuts on a large scale could reverse increases in carbon dioxide, limiting its impact on climate change.

  3. Enjoy a lifetime supply of high-protein, sweet-tasting hazelnuts.

    High in protein and cholesterol-free, these nuts are both deliciously sweet and naturally healthy. They can be eaten by themselves or sliced, minced, or crushed to add flavor to casseroles, squash, cookies, and candies. See recipes.
