2017 Harvest Results


2017 was another wonderful, typical "on" year harvest for Hickory in the Midwest. Harvest reports were in the normal range of 3 to 5 bushels of nuts for typical 50 to 75yr old trees. Although not the primary factor, the seasonal weather does affect the overall crop. Moderate temperatures, moisture and nutrients (especially zinc) are all important inputs. One pattern of note, there seems to be an increase in the number and frequency of grubs or shuckworms present in the Hickory nut crop in the southern third of the state that is making it's way north. Although it's winter and the harvest is over, Hickory enthusiasts hope for a hard frost. Here in the upper Midwest, there is some debate that the cold winters favorably impact the crop inasmuch as harsh winters tend to kill of a variety of insect pests which overwinter in the upper layers of the soil and duff.



We are again buying stocks of hickory nuts in-the-shell from private sources for up to $.20 per pound. If you're interested in making a few bucks from this years harvest, or becoming an annual supplier, contact us and get on our registry! (info@wisconsinhickorysyrup.com).
