Pick Your Own Pecans
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 post on Facebook what to expect at the Farmer’s Markets and what will be sold locally. Pecan trees typically have good crops every other year. Tom and Michael make some soil amendments and fertilizer amendments accordingly, and as God provides rain, we have good harvests.
