Fall/Winter Update

I'm finally posting an update about our fall harvest! Hazelnuts started to be picked starting in mid to late-August and ending by mid-September. The ripening varies because of the wide variety of plants that are planted in our "test" orchard.

 Dan collecting hazelnuts

Each bunch is picked and put in a bag.

Drying out the freshly picked hazelnuts in their husks.

After they dry out in their husks, many of the nuts will fall out of the husks when they are dry.

 Bags and bags of hazelnuts were picked.

Drying out the hazelnuts

After the nuts are separated from the husk they are continued to be dried down in mesh bags for a couple more weeks.

Lots of nuts!
