|Enjoy the flavor of Kansas pecans direct from our orchard!|
Welcome to Jake Creek Pecans!
THE 2014 HARVEST IS SOLD OUT!
Due to an extremely small crop this year caused by a mid-May freeze while the trees were blooming, we are already SOLD OUT of this year's harvest. Please keep us in mind next fall when you are ready to purchase pecans for your holiday baking! The trees have enjoyed having a year to recover from our extremely cold winter and two years of drought instead of producing pecans so we anticipate a great harvest next October.
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.
