It's almost time for Harvest Season at Royalty Pecan Farms. This year we hope to have a large pecan crop. We've had an especially wet August, so the trees have had plenty of water. That means the nut quality should be good.
We expect harvest to begin as normal, around the middle of October, but one never knows for sure. Right now we're prepping the orchard floor by leveling out rough spots and mowing close. We do this before bringing out the tree shaker.
We're also prepping the cleaning plant for harvest season. We've installed 80,000 pounds of additional drying capacity and other new equipment in the plant.
Check back soon for more updates on the pecan crop, new recipes, details about upcoming events, and more.
