Currently Sold Out of All Hickory Nuts!
For many of us on the eastern seaboard, this season was abysmal (you can read more about on my blog). I checked over 400 trees and harvested less than ten nuts total. No joke. There were very few nuts in the trees and what nuts there were the squirrels got long before they fell and laughed at me as they dropped the shells on my head.
I was fortunate to source 200 pounds of delicious, Pennsylvania shagbark hickory nuts, but they sold out very fast.
I’m totally out of nuts for the 2020-2021 season. Sign up below to get an alert when 2021 hickory nuts are ready to drop.

I just eat them totally raw. I crack them and pick at them until I have a huge pile. Then I just dump the pile into my mouth.
If you can lightly roast them for fifteen minutes they taste even better yet!
- Eat them raw.
- Sprinkle them on your cup cakes.
- Make a delicious milk from them.
- Use that to make a sweet hickory syrup.
- Oh man.
This year I’m only selling only shagbark hickory nuts. These hickory nuts were harvested in the autumn of 2020 from a single happy tree in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Typically they are harvested from Adams County, PA, but most of the mid-atlantic had a terrible year this year. I was fortunate to source these nuts to save this season!

Why do hickory nuts demand a premium price?
- They taste amazing. Like a cross between an English Walnut and Pecan
- The nuts are high in magnesium and iron
- They are particular about where they grow (limestone)
- The trees take up 25 years before they fruit
- The window of harvest is short (a few weeks)
- They are not commercially available
- Harvest is manual and time consuming
- Processing is manual and even more time consuming
- You have to beat the squirrels!
