About Us
Here at Holmquist Hazelnut Orchards, we are proud to be a fifth generation farm; family owned and operated. Our story begins in 1905 when John V. Holmquist made his way from Finland to help his father clear wilderness area for farming in Mt. Vernon, WA. On Independence Day of 1909, with vision and keen foresight, John V. Holmquist settled on his own heavily timbered acreage at Judson Lake. Over the course of time, a productive farm developed; raising crops of hay, oats, peas, beans, potatoes, and dairying. During the 1920’s, taking advantage of the rich soil and mild weather of the Northwest, the first hazelnut orchard was planted.
John V. Holmquist was deeply interested in the welfare of the community and was known for his contributions. We continue to honor John Victor and his mission to build relationships within the community, have strong industrial habits, and continue to be a part of local culture. With many generations of hard work and innovative thinking, we are pleased to offer you the highest quality products.

We currently grow and process our own hazelnuts and processing them further until packaged.
Quality and freshness are the driving factors in the harvest and production of our hazelnuts.
We are a conventional operation, but strive to be environmentally conscious, only using sprays when absolutely needed. By-products such as the hazelnut shells, empty hazelnuts and husks are recycled into mulch. We use the hazelnut industry's farm safety plan and are compliant with WSDA's best management practices and are audited by the FDA regularly.
Our processing kitchen is WSDA certified and we use GAP/GMP practices. Our hazelnuts are Kosher certified and the raw hazelnuts are GMO free.
We support our local economy whenever possible.
