About Us

Sassafras Nuts is a commercial chestnut and walnut farm located at Sassafras in the Budawang Ranges, 50 km south west of Nowra N.S.W. We have been growing premium quality nuts for more than 25 years.

Our farm gate is just two hours and forty minutes drive from Sydney; ninety minutes from Wollongong; two hours from Canberra and forty minutes from Nowra.  We welcome visitors and groups to the farm during the autumn harvest to purchase nuts.

We can supply you with nuts already picked and graded with price depending on grade and variety.

If you require walnuts these can be purchased directly from our packing shed when available.

For large orders of pre-packed chestnuts in 10 kilogram bags please telephone to make an order.
