Our orchard consists of three main varieties of hybrid, paper-shell pecans : Wichita, Cheyenne, and Western. These trees typically produce very large nuts. After harvest, we ship our nuts to a Certified Organic shelling plant. Most of the pecan halves that are produced in the shelling process grade out as Mammoth and Junior Mammoth halves. Mammoth is the largest USDA grade of pecan halve, and it means that one pound of halves will contain 250 or less pieces.
