Our Mission

The purposes of the Association shall be to promote interest in temperate zone tree nuts; scientific research in their breeding and culture; standardization of cultivar names; the dissemination of information concerning the above; and such other activities that may advance the culture of nut bearing plants, particularly in the North Temperate Zone.


Meet us at our Annual Conference

The NNGA membership meets at a different site once a year, generally in July or August. We visit local amateur and commercial orchards, experimental and research sites; nurseries and nut processing plants.


Read The Nutshell

We published The Nutshell, our newsletter, four times a year. Spring, Summer, and Fall are all mailed directly to our members, and our Winter edition is a special all-photo edition. We cover a number of topics including research, cultivar information, recipes, photos, and more!
