Call for Hazelnuts and Processors

On behalf of all OHA member growers, the OHA has been seeking possible sales connections for growers.  As a result of these actions there is some potential opportunity for consistent hazelnut sales with a domestic purchaser.  We are in the early stages of discussions regarding this opportunity, but we need to fully understand interest and product volumes now and in the future.  Our first step is to collect information about your yield, as well as a hazelnut sample to provide to this purchaser.
