Black Walnuts are one of the few crops still picked by hand today. Harvesting occurs every fall when the wild nut crop is hulled, bagged and sold to a network of buying stations, or “hullers,” for Hammons Products Company. Each year, millions of pounds of nuts are purchased from approximately 215 buying locations. From start to finish—planting, harvesting and final processing—Black Walnuts are a hands-on product, making them all natural and fully sustainable. As the popularity of this wildly delicious nut continues to grow, we will continue to dedicate the time and research to make sure our supply meets the demand.
Many generations of Americans in the Midwest and East-Central states have enjoyed harvesting Black Walnuts during the fall. Memories are made, values are passed down and money is earned, and you too can be part of this long time tradition.
