Where can I buy butternuts (the nutmeat, not the squash)?

I have looked all over and can't find a source for butternuts unless one happens to have a tree in their yard. I found one website, http://www.wildcrops.com/wild_nuts.html, that promises to have them available in the fall of 2010 but no other mention anywhere.

Can anyone help me?

    I j purchased a couple of butternut trees--and was later sad to find out that there is a virus that decimates the trees. That is why they are not available any place. I just planted them last spring, so we will see how long they last.

      Hooray for the Pennsylvania Farm Show and the Pennsylvania Nut Growers Association! I have learned to attend on opening day and was able to buy an 8 oz and a 4 oz bag of butternuts, wiping out their available stock.

      Now to figure out a recipe that will showcast them :)
