Black Walnut Nut Prices

Sat Oct 01, 2011 7:38 pm

Current price is 12 cents a pound, hulled. Up from about 11 cents last year.

My crop this year is very small nuts, and about 50% floating (bad).

Currently trying to fill 4 milk crates with good nuts to crack and pick this winter. Will wait another week to see if I have enough nuts to fill a pickup bed or two. Might try picking up nuts again this year, hoping to get enough to pay the property tax on the acreage.

2012. $13.00 a hundred pounds hulled. All time record high price.

Unfortunately, I got no walnuts. Absolutely no black walnuts. Drought. Not even enough nuts to pick up for self usage. What few nuts were on the trees, squirrels have been harvesting.

Just gotta love farming. 2 years in a row, no income from black walnuts. All of the black walnut seedlings planted this spring died. Drought.

I know Eugene..things aren’t good….
After being retired from my regular job and back into farming again this year was really bad. I’m hoping with in the next two years I’ll be out of it and start traveling and seeing the county side…that’s if I’m not broke by then.

I payed $7.50 for a lb bag hulled and ready to go over in Pequea a few weeks back. Saw a sign that said black walnuts and stopped. I picked up my very first english walnut produced on my tree the squirrels didn't get off the ground the other day, I doubt if it is any good as the ones still on the tree are green and the one I picked up maybe from last year, I will open eventually and see what's up.
