There are approximately 370 mature pecan trees that border each side of our U-pick orchards. Not only do they produce delicious pecans in the Fall but provide much needed shade in the summer for our U-Pick customers.
We have 4 basic varieties of pecans; Desirable, Choctaw, Pawnee and native. We usually begin harvesting them in October, but each year has been different depending on the rain, wind and many other conditions during the year that affect our harvest.
As pecan season approaches, we will post on Facebook what to expect at the Farmer’s Markets and what will be sold locally.
