- About -

Our History

​In 1986 Harold Plaisted and his son Tim Plaisted began Harvest Time Products in Aurora, Oregon. Together they pursued their calling to manufacture walnut shell. Their first products were derived from walnut shell which later transitioned into hazelnut shell. Wally Cat & Wally Bird was sold throughout five western states and into Canada. In 1991 Harold stepped down and Tim continued the venture. Harvest Time Products ended its journey in 1999.

​​In 2013 Tim's son, Kyle Plaisted and his wife Anna Plaisted, re-opened the business doors. From their backyard to the 120-foot Mill in Mount Angel Oregon, KP's has continued to grow their capacity to keep abreast of the vastly growing Oregon Hazelnut Industry. In the Willamette valley farmers are investing in planting more acres of hazelnut trees and the hazelnut market continues to shift toward kernels, which leads to further shelling and ultimately additional shell. KP's has increased the capacity to set themselves up for the additional shell volume. They have developed the distribution chains to maximize outward reach to the end consumers . KP's is dedicated to renewing biodegradable products through being Stewards of Hazelnut Shell. KP'
s is driven toward building honest, strong and long lasting business practices throughout the marketplace.
