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,, that promises to have them available in the fall of 2010 but no other mention anywhere.

Can anyone help me?

    1. 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 :)

      1. 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.
