Many people have been buying pecans, so we'll have cracked pecans for sale until we sell out, probably till mid-Feb. Apple and pecan prices are detailed in the previous blog post (scroll down).

From Dec. 1 to May 31, we're open by appointment. That means, during Dec. to May, to phone 620-597-2450 a day ahead and leave a message on the answering machine with your name, the crops you want, and the day and time you're coming. The phone rings in the house, so I'll answer it on super-cold days when I'm inside working on the computer. On warmer days, I'll get your message when I come in from working in the the sales building or orchard. Then I'll meet you in the sales building when you arrive here.
You can make an appointment for between 9:00 and 11:45 a.m. or between 1:00 and 5:15 p.m. Mon. to Sat., and between 1:30 and 5:15 p.m. Sundays. We're closed every Sunday morning, year-round, for church.
