I think Bert alluded to it above – I’d say the best possible thing you can do is talk to other farmers who are doing similar things. Doesn’t have to be hazelnuts. It could be some other sort of nut or even other produce in general. Most of them will have contacts (buyers) at the markets. There will be buyers who are interested in this sort of stuff for fresh sale also (not just for making into Nutella). Most other farmers will already have had to face some of these issues with packaging, etc. And most are very happy to impart some knowledge. And somewhere along the line you’re bound to make a couple of new great friends who will likely help you along with the process significantly. You might even need to make a couple of interstate trips at some stage if you can tee-up a catch-up with someone in a very similar game. But it will pay for itself many times over I suspect.
