Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question for us? The list below might be able to answer it, if it’s not there, feel free to contact us on info@chestnutbrae.com.au

1. When do you harvest?

The season starts in the middle of March in typical year and carries on to the end of May.
We have to wait until the nuts are ripe and this happens when they drop to the ground.
 
2. Do you sell your Pork and Lamb all year round?
PORK – Our chestnut fed heritage pasture raised pork can only be produced when we have chestnuts and therefore the product is available from chestnut season onwards until we run out of chestnuts. We usually have pork until November or December. We email our customer community when we have pork available.
LAMB – Our lamb is grass fed organic lamb and is available once a year until we are sold out. We email our customer community when we have lamb available.
We send out an email when the meat is available, join our newsletter on our Home Page for updates.
