Green Walnuts December 2017

Green_walnutsCampanella Cottage will be opening the farm gate for picking green walnuts ($8.00/kg) on 9th, 10th, 17th and 23rd of December 9:00am – 2:00pm.  At this time the outer green shell and inner shell is soft and a needle can be passed through both.  Nuts at this stage are suitable for pickling or making preserves.  Gloves should be worn for picking to avoid staining your hands.

Its recommended you call prior to visiting 4756 2035 to check there is enough produce for you. Hitting, climbing of trees and ladders are not permitted.

We will not open the farm gate again until March when the mature nuts begin to fall.

 

Green Walnuts

Farm Gate for green walnut picking will be open on the 19th and 20th December 2015.

We have 100  trees, some thirty years old. In mid December each year, when the inner shell is still soft and a needle is able to pass right through the whole nut, husk and all, it is a perfect time to harvest green walnuts.
