Heritage Walnuts

heritage walnuts

Walnut trees were planted in New Zealand over a century ago. Early settlers from Great Britain and France planted walnut seeds throughout the countryside.

Today, many of these large heritage trees can be seen growing wild in both rural and urban environments. The walnuts have provided the basis for both the research into finding a great New Zealand walnut and the development of the processing operation at A Cracker of a Nut.

The heritage walnuts are sold under the Wild label with the majority of them being free of targeted use of herbicides and pesticides.

Our range of products is shown above and includes walnut paste, oil, flour, pieces, halves and walnuts in-the-shell.
