    No. We provide pails in which to pick and grocery type bags to bring your chestnuts home.

    Besides a smile and a spirit of adventure, we suggest a pair of closed shoes or boots, and a pair of gloves. The burs, in which the chestnuts grow, are VERY sharp. To avoid pokes to hands or toes, bring gloves and don’t wear sandals.
