Discover NYS black walnuts, North America's native walnut!

Experience our Finger Lakes Guided Outdoor Black Walnut Tour. Our farm is open for tours and visits starting May 23, 2024, Wed-Sat.

Discover black walnuts at Black Squirrel Farms, the only licensed facility processing black walnuts in NYS. Come hear the story of a tree that doesn’t grow in the woods, how it fits into our landscape and how we get wild-grown walnuts from tree to table. Tours are outdoors and include a chance to crack and maple-glaze your own black walnuts. Our guided tour lasts 45 minutes and guests are welcome to come early or stay late to enjoy additional related self-guided activities set up around our site. We suggest planning to spend an additional 45 minutes enjoying creating a black walnut craft, making s'mores, learning how to estimate the age of a tree, playing lawn games, looking at found things under a microscope and more. Black walnut tour tickets are $30 / ticket ($15 for children ages 3-12 yrs, 2 yr and under free). Because everything we offer is outdoors, black walnut tours may be cancelled due to weather and weather-related cancellations will be either rescheduled or fully refunded. We've got something for everyone and we are looking forward to seeing you on the farm!
