Gold Is At Record Highs. Do You Have Black Gold On Your Property?

Gold is at record highs due to the uncertainty in the economy. How about selling some black gold from your own property? No, not oil, its black walnuts! Its that time of year again; time for young and old alike to pick up the black walnuts in Springfield, Ozark, Nixa, and surrounding areas of the Ozarks. I remember growing up on a farm and my brothers and sisters would spend hours picking up the walnuts and selling them for cash to spend on Christmas presents. Our hands would be stained for weeks but it was hard honest work. Ozark Missouri Walnuts

If you want to sell your walnuts, Hammons Products Company will pay you $12 per 100 pounds (after hulling!) Visit their website for hulling locations. Watch out for those squirrels!

Betty and John,

Nice post....and great tail of good times from your past, we used to help a local farmer pick apples to make some holiday money ourselves.

Walnuts...very healthy food! $12 per hundred pounds sounds like a lot...maybe not though if you are doing all the work to gather and prep.

Betty and John, Wow that is amazing, thanks for sharing. That sounds like a lot of work though, $12 for 100 lbs. I hear walnuts are a brain food. :)
