Flashback to walnut harvest this summer. Since our walnuts are 60 years old and non irrigated, their yield is half of the average walnut orchards. Adding the remoteness of our location at 3000 feet literally in the middle of the forest made it impossible to find a harvesting company to come out here, which meant we had to do it 100%ourselves. After doing a hand harvest for a couple years I realized I had to at least buy a Walnut shaker which was all I could afford so all the other harvesting tasks had to be done the old fashioned way, by hand! we shake the trees onto tarps and funnel them into small bins, drive them to my trailer with larger harvesting bins that I will take to my processor once full. Some of these bins are 100 pounds and Roidsy (aka Lexie) is usually the one at the top of the ladder muscling the final drop with our assistance from below. Everything we do here is hard work but we love it all! We are still so busy with pre winter farm chores and haven’t found the time to set up our website to sell our nuts! By January that will be up and running and everyone can then enjoy our amazing nuts! . . . . . #roids #farmher #femalefarmer #walnutharvest #walnutorchard #walnuts #harvest #oldschool #offgrid #mountainfarm #hardwork

Growing up a “city girl”, I didn’t know how to do much when it came to outdoor work, building or anything mechanical. 10 years ago I made a lifestyle change to become a farmer & live off the land. I learned new skills but using a chainsaw was not at the top of my list. In 2013 I started moving up to my family ranch that no one was using & would spend May-Nov living there. In middle of the forest with no grid power & 45 minutes to the nearest town, it became evident that I wouldn’t be able to survive here as well if I didn’t learn. My BF at the time was an arborist & was skilled at using a chainsaw but was reluctant to teach me b/c it was “too dangerous”. One day when our male ranch hand was offsite & we had a deadline with the fire dept to clear both sides of our road. It was a 2 person job, one on the skid steer pushing 15 ft manzanita into a pile and the other cutting wood into smaller pieces to pile better for burning. So by default, my X turns to me & says “guess you’re using the chainsaw today”. It was the best first day to learn because it was an all day job cutting manzanita which is the 8th hardest wood in the world (making it more difficult). I learned really quick about best spots to cut & what caused the saw to kick back. After that day I wouldn’t call myself a professional but I was confident on how to operate a chainsaw on smaller pieces of wood. In 2017 I made the full time move to the farm. Spending the last few winters up here have really showed me how rough off grid farm life can be & also taught me that I can’t leave home without my chainsaw in my backseat. With all the pine beetle damage, almost every trip to town is an obstacle course, trees down everywhere meaning if I’m not cutting it out of the way then I’m not going anywhere. The only thing I have not properly learned is to cut a standing tree. With so many projects I’m planning on my ranch, I need to learn how to “drop” a tree. I hired a local expert, had the best tutorial & now have the confidence to take down a tree.
