Our Orchards

“I like to compare growing pecans to growing a vineyard; every orchard and every growing season are different and unique.”

Some of our orchards have been in our family for over five generations. Since my father took them over in 1960, they have rapidly improved with each of his innovations. I like to compare growing pecans to growing a vineyard; every orchard and every growing season are different, you always focus on improving over last year and on the five years ahead when new plantings will produce their first crop.   Read more about our orchards, here

Cleaning Plant

"It’s a place where even Willy Wonka would be fascinated!"

Ah, the cleaning plant a noisy, dusty, hot or freezing frenzied maze of equipment moving pecans from one cleaning mechanism to another, each designed to for a specific task to get them ready for market.  My dad literally built the first version of this hot mess with his own hands in 1968.

For more information, check out our plant's website here.

Candying

"There is nothing better than watching pecans cooked to perfection in circa 1940s copper cauldrons."

Using time-tested techniques, our pecans are roasted with just a hint of salt before being candied and cooked to sight in copper cauldrons or enrobed in chocolate or hand-pulled caramel.
