Green Kentish Cobnuts and Handmade Kentish Trugs from Potash Farm

We're busy getting ready for St Filbert's Day and the start of picking our Green Kentish Cobnuts, now ready to preorder online.

The 20th of August is St Filbert's Day, this day is just about the time when harvest for hazelnuts would traditionally begin in England, as we race to beat the squirrels to the nuts!

Our Kentish Cobnuts continually sold throughout their short season as green and golden on the husks, golden brown on the husks, and brown on the husks - all with a distinct moist and nutty flavour.
