Rain, rain and then some more rain

by Debbie Milks August 26, 2019

We are looking forward to another harvest season.  After 25 years, we are still surprised by Kansas weather.  Like much of the midwest, by June we had exceeded our normal annual precipitation and still it rains!  But the burrs look nice and fat in the trees and we are signing up some hardy helpers to gather the nuts when they begin to fall. (if you live nearby and want to participate in the harvest, please fill out the contact form on the Harvest Help Wanted page)

Shipping will start in early October, so check the website and we will let you know when you can place your orders.
