Van Morrison has long sung the praises of brown-eyed girls with nut brown hair:
From a boreen green came a sweet colleen / And she smiled as she passed me by / She looked so sweet from her two bare feet / To the sheen of her nut brown hair.
Like Mr. Van Morrison, we have also danced a barefoot jig after feeling sweet on a maid with nut brown hair. Except, our maids are actually hazel trees... and, that sweet feeling is less a feeling of attraction, and more a feeling of thirst!
Bona-fide Hazel Nutmilk made down in Cottage Grove, Oregon.

Back in September, we created a contest for the best story about how hazelnuts have affected the lives of our community. Runner-up Connie says that as a “Hazel Fan” she would enjoy visiting the holiday hazelnut festival with her daughter. Winner, Amber, says that she holds no grudges against Portlanders who enjoy hazelnuts, but she enjoys being a Hazel Fan from little Eugene, Oregon.
