In the heart of NY Finger Lakes wine country…


At this 8.25 acre site with Seneca Lake views is a multi-year experiment interplanting various perennial edibles within a treescape which includes abundant black walnut.  Flowering trees with varying bloom times have been made a planting priority to support wild pollinators and efforts are being made to support native flowering understory plants. Here is one of the four hazelnuts that grew here this year; we were expecting our first hazelnuts in 2020.

In Yates County, NY, Tyler Seneca and Cattle, LLC is doing business as Black Squirrel Farms.  Our 2019 plans include collecting and processing the black walnuts that grow on our land as well as those from other growers in the Penn Yan / Geneva area. Interested black walnut growers can find out more here.
