Pecans

In the heart of our land in Mayflower, AR, sits Clark’s Pecan Grove, a 30 acre pecan orchard filled with a mixture of Paper Shell, Stuart, Desirable and Native pecan trees. Our 140 trees are 30 to 40 years old. Nine years ago we planted 60 Pawnee trees that are quickly developing. After our first hard freeze, our trees become dormant and we begin the harvesting process. We sell pecans whole and cracked. At the end of the season, we take all our excess pecans to market for wholesale.

Last year’s recap: Our orchard opened to the public Saturday, November 2, 2013, and closed for the season Saturday, December 28, 2013. We had a great year, harvesting over 35,000 pounds. The market was great, and we appreciate everyone who came out to pick.

In January 2014, we pruned the trees  for the first time in 6 years and we invested a great deal in new equipment.  We were definitely hoping for the 2014 Pecan Season to be our BEST Season yet!!!  But to our regret we just do not have the pecans that we were hoping for this year, therefore, we are going to open  the orchard only 3 times this year to the Public!  The dates and times are Saturday, November 8th,  November 22nd and December 6th,  9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  We are hoping there will be enough pecans for people to pick for a pecan pie but we think everyone will enjoy the beauty of the orchard.  We will hopefully have some pecans for sale, pecan wood for smoking and grilling for sale especially after all that trimming and some homemade jellies for sale.   The prices this year are as follows:

  • Whole Pecans – $3.50 per pound
  • Cracked Pecans – $4.00 per pound
  • Shelled Pecans – $10.00 per pound
  • Pecan Wood for Smoking & Grilling – $2.00/bag of chunks & $2.00 for 4 logs.
  • Jellies – $5.00 per jar or $8.00 for 2 jars
