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. As a footnote for 2021...Our pecan trees did not produce any pecans to speak of in 2020 so we are expecting a spectacular season for 2021! Tom and Michael will be making some soil amendments and fertilizer amendments accordingly, and God willing we will have more rain in the summer this year, so we will have a good harvest this year!
