Sutter County Agricultural Commissioner Lisa Herbert announced today the walnut buying period will begin Tuesday, November 1, beginning a window period that will end April 30, 2017, pursuant to the County’s Walnut Theft Prevention ordinance. The walnut buying period is the declared conclusion of harvest of the Chandler variety of walnuts by the Agricultural Commissioner, after consultation with walnut growers, during which non-processing walnut buying operations within Sutter County may lawfully purchase and receive walnuts that have not been dried or processed.
The ordinance was established to deter thefts from commercial walnut growers by creating a time frame for walnut purchases and the use of documentation to identify the growers of walnuts.
Walnuts are the second highest valued agricultural commodity in Sutter County. According to the Sutter County 2015 Crop Report there were 26,496 harvested acres in Sutter County with a market value of $77,454,000. “The Walnut Theft Prevention ordinance is intended to deter theft and proof of ownership is a mandatory requirement of the ordinance”, stated Herbert.
For more information or to access a proof of ownership form approved by this office please see the Agricultural Commissioner’s website: http://www.co.sutter.ca.us/doc/government/depts/ag/aghome
There are similar ordinances in place in Butte, Tehama, Glenn, and Yuba counties, and in several counties to the south.

In the U.S., clocks change at 2:00 a.m. local time. In spring, clocks spring forward from 1:59 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. In fall, clocks fall back from 1:59 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. The phrase "Spring Forward, Fall Back" is used to help people remember how to reset their clocks.
Move your clocks back one hour at the resumption of Standard Time.
Contrary to popular belief, no federal rule mandates the observance of daylight saving time. Daylight Saving time and Time zones are regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
