grassroots media spotlight: organic hazelnuts

Posted: May 31 2020

Though 99% of U.S. hazelnuts are grown in Oregon, only 1% of these are grown organically. NCAP doesn’t back down from a challenge, though, and we are proud to be working with a new cooperative, Oregon Organic Hazelnuts , to change the statistics. Taylor Larson of My Brothers' Farm shares successes in Oregon organic hazelnut production.
