These naturally growing nuts grow all over Connecticut on a variety of Oak Trees. They are best harvested late summer and autumn and can be harvested directly from the ground. Acorns were a staple food for many native American Indians.

Almost every town and state website asks us to be prepared for emergencies by storing at least 3 days worth of food. Have you ever wondered what would happen if an event triggered people to hoard food and the grocery stores where empty for much longer than 3 days? The wisdom of naturally occuring foods like Acorns is all but lost in today's society and most people would go hungry while acorns lay about on the ground uneaten.
