The supply-chain back-log has taken a toll on Northern California farmers. 

Many in Butte County see no way of getting their almonds, rice and walnuts to a desperate market. Butte County Farm Bureau's Coleen Cecil says in some cases farmers are having their crops driven by truck to a port where the containers can be shipped overseas. Cecil says supply-chain issues could have long-lasting effects if farmers lose clients over the back-log. Now, to make things worse, several nights of freezing temperatures are in the forecast. Farmers are out every night running water to keep the tiny sprouting nuts alive.
