Black Squirrel Farms
In the heart of NY Finger Lakes wine country, we’re focused on black walnuts. In partnership with our affiliates, we grow, collect and process black walnuts at the first licensed black walnut processing facility in New York State, located right here in Yates County. At our 8+ acre site, a multi-year experiment interplanting various perennial or native edibles within a treescape which includes abundant black walnut is ongoing.
We can reset the positive relationship that used to exist between black walnut trees and people by demonstrating how black walnuts are useful for far more than lumber. Come see for yourself and crack and sample black walnuts on our front porch. Please note that black walnuts are a tree nut and this is not an appropriate activity for people with tree nut allergies.
