Promoting interest in temperate zone tree nuts.

We promote scientific research in nut breeding and culture. We aim for the standardization of cultivar names and the dissemination of information. We also strive to promote other activities that may advance the culture of nut bearing trees, particularly in the North Temperate Zone.


Every year, the Northern Nut Growers Association donates thousands of dollars for research on temperate nut trees.

We provide funding to individuals, universities, extension offices, government agencies, and more.

In 2020, the United States alone exported over $8.4 billion in tree nut exports. Our organization provides funding for better growing, better products, and better nuts.

Please help continue our mission and donate today. Every dollar counts.
