Welcome to Jake Creek Pecans!


     This year's crop (Fall 2016) looks fantastic! The trees loved all the rain and have lots of new growth. The pecans look beautiful and we had a great harvest! We began harvest in late October (in shirtsleeves!) and finished in early November; just in time for all your holiday baking.

We will be at the final Lawrence Farmers Market on November 19, the Independence Museum Holiday Bazaar on December 3, and the Lawrence Farmers Market Holiday Market on December 10.

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 1,000 of them currently bearing USDA improved variety pecans. Most of our orchard is planted in Pawnee and Kanza varieties, but we also have Goosepond, Peruque, and Gardner. 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.
