Ken and June’s Hazelnuts at Melcher Family Farm

This listing is provided by Willamette Valley Visitors Association

The Melcher family began farming filberts (hazelnuts) in 1957 and was continued by the second-generation farmer, Dennis. Along with farming, he and his wife started a value-added business, Ken & June’s Hazelnuts, (named after Dennis’ parents), and now includes their three daughters who have successfully taken the reins and expanded the family business. The hazelnut products include roasted, salted, and candy-coated as well as hazelnut butter and fruit jams. The farm also grows and sells peaches. Come and experience the aroma of freshly-picked peaches. The season is typically late July through August. No U-pick available. Stop by to enjoy our farm scenery and quaint farm store with fresh hazelnut products.
