We live in the Willamette Valley, and Hazelnuts are one of the biggest crops in our area (I think we grow the most Hazelnuts in the US). Christmas tree farms are big here too, and it is a gorgeous area if you're not familiar! When I did this page, my cute girl looked like she was a bit nuts, so I named her Hazel (get it?... Hazelnuts). Ok, ok I know it's corny. But there she is!
