I know we have a few members here in Pecan country, I'm looking for a place to purchase bulk Pecans, I would like a tote full, anyone know who or where to contact ?

 

I have a cracking machine and would like to put it to work, I love making and snacking on Pecan Brittle... 

 

Thanks, Chris

Let me know how many you want.....if you want to come down for a day you could pick up all you could eat for a year in a few hours. I’ve never seen as many as there are this year, a real bumper crop. I can get you all you want or need....

I don't know how much a tote would weigh but the 275 gl or so totes and yes a road trip for me & the wifey would be good...  I don't really have time to gather them but if someones kids do I would gladly pay, and when I make my famous pecan brittle I'll send a box full...

In fact, I'd buy 2 totes if I could find that many, my dad also wants a bunch...

You want them cracked? I just took about 200lbs and had cracked. Now we just have to sit down and de-shell them....it’s well worth the money. I believe they charge me .40 a pound, priceless imo
I have a crew picking up mine now, we didn’t shake the trees this year, no need.

Most sold in croker sacks, seems like about 165#...idk, can’t remember, but it’s a guess, they weigh each sack.

I have a cracking machine myself... I guess 2-3 sacks would be good, don't know what a croker sack is right off...

They’ll average about .60 per pound, that seems to be the price this year.....some varieties are bringing .75 (vandemine, Stuart) mine are all mixed, with various nuts....we don’t bother separating trees with the exception of seedlings/money makers/etc. super small and a pita to crack and shell, we always sell them.
Let me know when you want to head down and I’ll get them ready....
