Welcome to Z's Nutty Ridge Nursery
Why we exist and we're happy you are here!
Almost 30 years ago we realized a large percentage of land was abandoned by farmers throughout the Northeast. The fields were getting filled with invasive bushes, sumacs, maples, and ashes. Taking natures lead, the search was on to find what trees could be planted to make the fields productive again.
After much research, we planted many thousands of nut trees of all types to learn what would grow in our colder USDA zones, on our hillside soils, with ample rainfall. It turns out the best nut trees were native to our region, just hybridized for disease resistance and large tasty bumper crops of nuts. Take advantage of our experience, buy our regionally proven trees and with cultivars you can have nuts in as little as two years. In fact, we have hazelnut cultivars you can only buy from us.
If you want to learn more just go to our hazelnuts and chestnuts information pages. Nut trees once established can out live you while providing healthy food security and sustainability.
