Fast Facts

Demand Grows

Demand for hazelnuts is growing globally, while the global supply is dropping.

Our goal

Although the OHA doesn't sell hazelnuts, our collective involves advocating for the farmers who do sell them.

Why Not Ontario?

The hazelnuts imported here are from the United States, Turkey, and Chile. This provides an opportunity to cultivate our own here at home.
