Visit This Nut Farm-Grape Farm Winery-others?

Do you have a few nut trees and go a little nutty when the fruit begins to fall? Then visit with me and some other (nutty) gardeners at this Walnut Farm. This will not be a technical instruction story but a simple example of what goes on at a small WALNUT FARM. These thumbnail photos show what it takes to run a small nut farm.

The pictures are beautiful. I come from N.J. We always went to the farms and bought bushels of apples. dad and I would peel all day so mom could make her apple pies[ she would freeze some] and apple sauce to have with a baked ham. We also would get luther hill corn.
