B. Michael Adams, Managing Partner
I view Royalty Pecan Farms®
as a pristine piece of this earth over which I am privileged to look after for a few years. When I walk that ground, I have a peace that only comes from an attachment to the land. The soaring redtail hawk and graceful pecan trees are a bonus. I strive to do the place justice during the time I am its steward. My livelihood is Royalty Pecan Farms®, my love is my family, my true north compass is my faith in the Creator God. Read More
Andy Sherrod, Orchard Manager
Andy Sherrod was raised in the west Texas town of Midland, where he enjoyed planting and tending a garden every summer. It’s no surprise that he went on to receive his undergraduate degree in Horticulture from Texas A&M University, along with a Masters degree in Agriculture. After managing 100 acres of peaches in San Saba County for four years, Andy came to Royalty Pecan Farms® in 1986. Andy met his wife, Carole, while they were both studying at Texas A&M, and together they raised five children right here at Royalty Pecan Farms®.
Carole Sherrod, Operations Advisor
With a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture and a Master of Science degree in Agronomy, growing and nurturing plants has always been a passion for Carole. In coming to Royalty Pecan Farms® over 25 years ago, not only has she been able to develop that passion, she was able to nurture another one: pecans and their health benefits. As the farm’s Welcome Center Director and as a Certified Nutritionist, sharing the healthiness of pecans with others has become her primary focus.
Rebekah Stallsworth, Welcome Center & Venue Manager
Having been raised right here on the Royalty Pecan Farms® property, Rebekah is passionate about taking advantage of the beauty of the natural setting.

After working in nearly every capacity at Royalty Pecan Farms®, she was thrilled to take on her current position, overseeing not only the store but also weddings, dinners, and other special events in a venue that overlooks the orchard she loves so much.
