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. Eight years ago we planted 60 Pawnee trees that are quickly developing. We open our orchard to the public in the latter part of October for picking on the halves. Customers from the Central Arkansas area come pick pecans and are allowed to keep half of what they pick for free, but have the option to purchase more. 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.
We’re gearing up for next season! We pruned the trees this year for the first time in 6 years, and we invested a great deal in new equipment. We are looking for 2014 to be our best season yet.We will open sometime at the end of October or beginning of November 2014 for picking on the halves and purchasing. Customers are allowed to keep half of what they pick for free, but have the option to purchase more. We provide buckets and pecan pickers, so bring your friends and family for a day of fun harvesting pecans. If you have any questions and/concerns please contact us at 501.454.2667 or 501.339.5677.
Love to barbeque and smoke meat? We have pecan chips for sale, and our customers are raving about them. Try them with your ribs, salmon, trout, chicken, and much more. They give such a great flavor, and they’re easy to use. Give us a call if you’re interested in trying some!
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.
Our business is family owned and operated, and we strive to provide the best customer service possible. If you or someone you know are interested in purchasing our services, please call 501.454.2667 or 501.339.5677.
