At Wandalands, we take immense pride in offering top-quality fresh shelled pecans for sale.

In this post, we’ll explore the meticulous process behind our pecan harvesting and treat you to a delightful homemade pecan pie recipe.
Harvesting with Care
The First Step: Shaking the Trees
Utilizing our reliable John Deere tractor, equipped with specialized equipment, we begin the harvesting process. Safety is paramount, and the tractor’s protective cage ensures our team’s well-being as we shake the trees, causing the pecans to fall.
Gathering the Nuts
After shaking the trees, our pecan harvester, attached to the tractor, efficiently collects the fallen nuts. This process is gentle yet effective, preserving the quality of every pecan we harvest.
Processing with Precision
Cleaning and Cracking
In our cleaning shed, each pecan is freed from debris, undergoing a thorough cleaning. Our cracking machines then delicately crack open the shells, revealing the high-quality pecans inside.
Sorting and Packaging Fresh Shelled Pecans for Sale in our Store
Our pecans are sorted into three categories: raw pecan halves, raw pecan pieces, and whole in-shell pecans. Each category serves a unique purpose in various culinary delights. We meticulously weigh and bag them, ready for your kitchen adventures.
