Nuts & Specialty Products
Black walnut and pecan trees produce annual nut crops that are enjoyed by many people in cakes, candies, and cookies. Hammonds Product Company, Stockton, Missouri, purchases millions of pounds of black walnut each fall from local hulling stations in Kansas. These hulling stations purchase walnut seeds directly from Kansas landowners. The Kansas Forest Service maintains a list of the locations and contact information for the walnut hulling stations.
