Green Kentish Cobnuts

The Kentish Cobnut (Corylus), Lambert's Filbert.

This nut is a variety of the hazel nut. A large oval shaped nut traditionally grown in Kent since the 1800s. Production peaked in 1913 when there were over 7000 acres of cobnut plats. Sadly today only approximately 250 acres are commercially grown.

At Farnell Farm we planted a cobnut plat of 600 trees in the winter of 1999-2000 with the help of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme. The trees are planted in a traditional quinox pattern in a four acre field.

All our cobnuts are naturally grown without the use of fertiliser, pesticides or chemical sprays.


Kentish Cobnuts are sold fresh when ripe between late August and the end of October, they are also available dried from October to December. They can be eaten as they are or added to salads or pasta and are delicious roasted with a little salt.

Our Green Kentish Cobnuts are now available until late September. 1lb/454g box of Green Kentish Cobnuts £8.00 (UK Only).

During the harvest, the nuts turn from a vibrant green to a delicious golden brown through the handpicking season while still on the husk.
