Wild & Ancient Walnuts

It's nearly walnut season and we've been sourcing walnuts for boxes. This week we were told by a new hilbarn customer about an old walnut tree growing on the side of the road on Mount Arthur.  With just rough directions, we thought we'd have no hope of finding it amongst the native forest. But here it is. We also found a twin just up the road, but, unfortunately, the birds had got to their sweet fruits first.  Who knows how old they are and who planted them?
