In 1879, my great-grandfather bought the 80-acre farm. Native pecan trees were growing here at the time. Over the years our family farmed the land doing very little with the pecan trees. In 1960, we purchased very little with the pecan trees. In 1960, we purchased the farm from my Aunts. In 1987, I was clearing the pasture and noticed many young pecan trees growing alongside some brush. I kept some of these trees and decided to go to a grafting school here in Paola. I was not familiar with grafting trees but it sounded very interesting. We completed the grafting course and left with the scion wood to make the grafts. I began grafting trees and continued to graft more each year. We planted another 40 acres of pecan trees over the last few years which I have grafted to the improved varieties as well. Today we have a shaker that clamps to the tree trunk and shakes the nuts to the ground, a harvester to gather the nuts, a cleaner to separate the nuts from the trash, and several commercial crackers to crack them. Whole or cracked pecans and halves, and black walnut meats are sold at the farm or online. We have the big Pawnee and Kanza varieties. Kansas Pecans are simply DELICIOUS!! Custom cracking pecans is available.
