Our Texas native pecans are:
sustainable – Texas native pecans are not planted in orchards but grow wild. They do not require irrigation and are compatible with soil-building grasses.
delicious - these small nuts are packed with flavor that many Texans say is the best and natives have the highest oil content of any pecan. Researchers say it is even healthier than olive oil.
raw - either fresh shelled or our activated recipes where low drying temperatures do not damage nutrients.
activated - We soak in filtered water and Redmond sea salt releasing vitamins and enzymes as the nut sprouts, and dissolving enzyme inhibitors to make them digestible. Low-temperature drying preserves delicate nutrients.
support rural small family enterprise - Our family living on our small farm are the only workers in our pecan shop.
support sustainable farming - The pecan work allows our whole family to stay on the farm so we can transform a formerly mono-crop chemical farm to a sustainable, natural, diverse farm.
amazing activated recipes - Family Recipe Sea Salt Crispy is our basic soaked and dried (sprouted, but only slightly) recipe, with Redmond sea salt. The natural sweetness of the native pecan and a touch of salt makes it awesome in sweet or savory recipes. Apple Pie uses only local wildflower honey, apples, and cinnamon (no refined sugar) for a deeply flavorful slightly sweet topping on plain yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, spinach salad with strawberries, or just a snack with healthy oils, sugar, and protein, and Mesquite-Smoked gives a bacony smoke and crunch when sprinkled on salads, greens, vegetables, soups, pastas and more.
support local small food producers and artisans - We use only local honey, mesquite, and native pecans shelled by us or other local shellers and care about our local people, land, creatures and water.
shipped direct from us to you with shipping included - For maximum freshness, eliminating warehouse time.
We ship only pecan halves (not pieces) for maximum freshness+longevity.
We encourage you to enjoy the activated native pecans like we do, as a condiment sprinkled on lots of basic whole foods like rice, squash, grains, yogurt, oatmeal, vegetables, soups, etc. to economically add lots of flavor and crunch that makes a plain dish fantastic. Pecans are 70% oil, providing healthy fats in an unrefined, unprocessed form. A little goes a long way when you add just a few to make your dish something special.
Thanks for your support. David
