I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this, yet:
nuts are notorious for varying MUCH in production
from one year to the next. It doesn't mean that
the trees are unhealthy--'least, no one I know be-
lieves that--they just like to recover, some years.
Your revenues are likely to roller-coaster.

I don't know anything about hazelnut processing in
this country. Please do report back on it as you
