For the last month I have been going around town picking up walnut from peoples yards, plus mine own yard. I took them in to a local buyer and I had around 3650 pounds after he bagged them.
Got 15 cent a pound this year for them. Only one guy pays me to pick them up.
I am about done for this year picking up walnuts - the trees are about done for this year.
I helped a guy haul his walnuts to the buyer and he had over 4650 pounds of the walnuts.
We use tubs that framers get for minerals for there live stock.
We can put around 90 pounds of walnuts it a tub, that have the husk on them.
I had 99 tubs so far this year. the guy I helped had over 130 tubs.
The buyer has a machine that removes the husk from the walnuts and bags them.
I regular load of tubs on my pickup is 10, but I have had 18 tubs on my pickup half ton pickup.
