Oak Trees

Oak trees are not often thought of in terms of providing human food in our country, but were once a subsistence crop for many people in Europe. Oak trees yield acorns which can be boiled and baked, and the best varieties can actually be quite sweet and acceptable as a dish. Otherwise, pigs absolutely love acorns and are fattened on them, and even free ranged under oak trees, with great success.
