Welcome to Jake Creek Pecans!


     This year's crop (Fall 2016) is looking fantastic! The trees are loving all this rain we've been getting and are showing lots of new growth. The pecans look beautiful and we anticipate having a great harvest! We expect to begin harvesting in late October or early November; just in time for all your holiday baking.

We will be at the Louisburg Holiday Mart in mid-November, the Independence Museum Holiday Bazaar in mid-December, and the Lawrence Christmas Farmers Market also in mid-December. You may place orders via email or phone at any time. Prices and packaging options can be seen by clicking on the following link: Varieties and Prices

About Us

     In 1994, we started our pecan orchard by planting 200 saplings purchased from Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas. We planted the saplings in what used to be a cornfield along the banks of Jake Creek in Northeast Kansas and were excited about our new "hobby."

     Over the next 5 years, we increased our orchard by approximately 100 saplings per year. In 2001, we purchased some adjoining property and began growing our own saplings, a process involving stratifying the pecan nut. We now have 1,900 trees with approximately 600 of them currently bearing USDA improved variety pecans. Our hobby has become a full-time job.

     We spend our springs pruning and grafting, our summers watering and mowing, and our falls harvesting so that we can offer our customers only delicious, locally grown Jake Creek Pecans.
