What’s Happening on the Pecan Farm
We’re just starting the new pecan harvest season, and the crop is looking beautiful!
We’ve seen quite a bit of rain here in the Brazos Valley over the last few days. Too much rain during this time of year can make it difficult to operate the tractors, shakers, and harvesters in the orchard. However, we were able to shake some trees last week and now have a fresh crop of Desirable pecans. That’s just one of the six main varieties we grow here. Since the harvest season is just beginning, only some of the pecans are open and ready to fall by early November. The rest will be ready soon!
