•A little about The Fig Hunter•
My name is David Burke aka The Fig Hunter . I live in Northern California in Red Bluff at the very north end of the Sacramento Valley. Though I was born ,raised and lived until few years ago in Napa of The Napa Valley . I work primarly in heavy construction as a Union Pile Driver of Local 34 out of Oakland,Ca one of the oldest Pile Driving Unions. With type of work I travel a lot all over Northern California . On the Ranch I grew up on there where 3 massive Fig trees I remember my youth. I started in the fig hunting hobby over a year ago because it was a fun thing to do after work . It also allowed me to take figs home to my family . We own 11 acres in Red Bluff,Ca we had a 1 acre market garden going and raising poultry and Berkshire Hogs. We were looking for something to add to the property and because I was finding fig trees we went with them. I started recording the video and putting them on YouTube after being Recommend to do so because the Live streams of the Fig trees I was finding on What The Fig were being lost in the mix of regular posts. So we started and I mean my beautiful wife Priscilla started “ Fig Hunters” YouTube channel ( the name was of course because of what we were doing and name The Fig Hunter was because someone said you really are The Fig Hunter. We do this as a Family Priscilla , our 3 daughters and I it allows us to enjoy a hobby together and most times it happens just driving down the road. We have found wild fig trees from Disneyland to Oregon most our finds are in the San Francisco Bay Area to Redding though. We follow strict lond established Naming guidelines of the Fig community . We freely name Seedling figs and we record and document the trees so to be able to prove that they are a Seedling. Then if we can’t tell if it’s a seedling ( 100 year old trees ) we might name the road and unknown if only for our own records . You might ask how can we tell it wasn’t planted? Well we use the method of possibilities if a tree is in a spot such as growing out of a rock the chances are it’s not planted. We do our diligence and research the hours spent pouring over photos is Exhausting. Most important we are doing this because it’s fun to share with others and the adventure . Then end goal is to have a legacy to pass to the girls as a fig farm in Northern California. I will continue to work Union because it’s fun . Also I wish to be and I respect honesty up front I shall make mistakes because I’m human but I will not go out of my way to lie to you about the things if I don’t know if it’s common I will never stated it is. We look forward to chatting and visiting if you have any questions just ask we are on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok Reddit, Tumblr , if you ever have a question please ask.
