If you have oak trees on your property, those acorns are currently dropping. Autumn is the season when most acorns begin to fall and you may be anticipating the big job of collecting them from your yard. Bag-A-Nut Acorn Harvesters have you covered, whether your acorns are small (between ¼” to 1” inch in diameter) or large (over 1” inch in diameter).
You can cover small areas with the Stab-A-Nut Harvester designed for owners of 1-2 trees, or the 12″ Push Acorn Picker. For larger areas, check out the 18″ Push, 36″ Push, or 36″ Pull Behind models. No matter how you collect your acorns, you may be wondering if there is something you can use them for.
We may not be able to eat them like the squirrels and birds do, but surprisingly, there are many things to discover about the uses of acorns. There is actually a market out there for buying and selling acorns. Hunters use them as deer bait, so they will often buy them and spread them during hunting season. Creative people use acorns in crafts, especially during the holiday season. Some ideas for acorn crafts include, wreaths, picture frames, candles, jewelry, animal shapes, and Christmas ornaments. These would be especially fun for kids to make.
If you want to sell your acorns online to these clients, you can create sellers pages on Etsy, Ebay, or even Amazon. This allows you to sell to people in all areas. You can use Craigslist or Facebook groups to sell to people in your area. You can check these sites and compare pricing with other sellers. You may be surprised at the extra money you could make. Most people want to purchase whole acorns with the caps still intact, so make sure to sort through and find the best ones to bundle and sell.
After you’ve efficiently collected your acorns, don’t let them go to waste. Take advantage of these ideas today!
