Black walnuts

I've collected thousands of black walnuts over the last couple of months and have processed many of them. I have hundreds still remaining that have by now turned completely brown/black. Are they still viable to process, or have the hulls been on too long? I've read over and over about removing the hulls as quickly as possible after collecting, but I'm not sure what the affect is (taste?). These walnuts have been laying in a sandy spot in the yard, basically in a single layer. I don't see any evidence of mold.

I am currently have 3 acres I am farming. I was considering growing hops. I did some research and tOSU put out some guidance around things to consider before starting a hops farm. It’s shows there may be able to have a site study done through the local extension. My initial question is, would 3 acres be enough to have a sustainable commercial operation. I can build most of the infrastructure but I question if harvest would be much on 3 acres. Thank you
