Hazel, Cobnuts, Walnuts and Chestnuts
Commercial nut growing is increasing in popularity particularly as a good way to diversify farms and driven by an increase in Agroforestry projects. The health benefits of nuts are widely known and they are easy to grow.
Squirrels can be a nuisance but in a large plantation they will not have such a big impact.
Multiple varieties are required for pollination.
