The Hazelnut Growers of Australia are the peak industry body for hazelnut growers in Australia. We support our members by providing representation of the industry in government and horticultural forums, and by providing networking and training opportunities through an annual conference, farm walks and workshops. The HGA maintains a grower handbook and updates grower’s with information through its quarterly newsletter.
The Hazelnut industry is emerging in Australia with approximately 60 tons produced in Australia by local growers. In contrast, 2000 tons of hazelnuts are imported each year. This demonstrates the fantastic potential of hazelnuts as a crop for a diversified farm or as a sole venture.
Want to learn more and join this growing industry? Come along to the 2019 HGA Annual Conference and meet other growers, talk to researchers and find out more about growing hazelnuts. It’s on the 6-8th September in Canberra. More details here.
