Fear Not Selling, Pecan Growers!


Demystifying how and where to sell your pecans

 

Are you blessed with trees that produce pecans in your yard or local park? Do you have neighbors with pecan trees who would be generous enough to let you clean up some of their fallen fruit?


If so, then first thing’s first: collect enough of the glorious, nutrient-dense nut to make at least one delicious pecan pie for Thanksgiving. (FYI: On average, 1 pecan pie uses 2 cups, or ½ a pound of shelled pecans.)


Now, once your bare necessities are met, feel free to earn a little extra money by selling the rest of your pecans.


Pecans begin to fall in early-mid September and will continue to fall through November. Make sure to pick up the pecans as soon as possible after they’ve dropped because wet weather can be detrimental to the nuts; moreover, other wildlife may get there before you do!


A couple helpful tips for gathering your pecans:

-It’s easier to clean up the nuts if you rake the leaves around the base of the tree(s). Otherwise, it can be like digging for a needle in a haystack.

-Depending on the scale of your pecan collection, you may want to invest in some equipment to aid you in your task. If stooping over and picking up the pecans manually is too much, you could always use a Nut Wizard. See one in action here:


























Preparing to sell your pecans is like everything else in life – you get out of it what you put into it. Although most buying facilities will accept your pecans in any way they come, you are assured a better offer if you’ve put effort into the presentation. This means:


1) Sort out damaged nuts. A damaged nut is any nut that is cracked, wet, extremely dark in color, hollow sounding/light in weight, has visible worm holes or a stubborn husk still attached.

 Note: The horror of pecan weevils is real. They puncture the nuts in the tree, making holes and causing nuts to fall early. It’s essential to start controlling this problem in August, or as early as possible. The larvae from the adult weevils in the fallen nuts then invades the soil and can create a problem for your pecan harvest for up to 2 years afterwards.

2) Make sure your nuts are free from dirt, leaves, bugs and sticks! You can do this by going through your hull and rubbing dirty pieces with a dry rag to remove any unwanted particles. Please use gloves if you don’t want to get too messy during this process.

3) Size matters! Be careful to sort your whole pecans by approximate size.


It would behoove you to follow the above instructions because collecting these damaged nuts with your good nuts could cause a decrease in the amount you’re paid for the good material. Take the time to do these things and you shall be rewarded!


You can find local buying facilities of many shapes and sizes around the country. For convenience, below you can find a list of some options organized by state for your reference. These businesses go by various names, such as buyers, shellers, hulling and shelling services, accumulators, etc. They will be happy to purchase your pecans. Typically, people bring their pecans in bags or buckets. Approximately 15-20 lbs. of whole pecans can fit into a 5-gallon bucket. This number can change due to moisture content. The pecans should be dry and from the current year.


If you’re collecting and storing all of your pecans until the end of the season to be sold, make sure to keep them in a dry, cool place in a loose cloth sack. The time they spend in the sack will actually improve their quality of taste, acting as a curing period. Curing nuts simply means drying them out and letting their flavor become more concentrated.   


At this stage, you’re welcome to shell the pecans yourself before you sell them. However, depending on the scale again, it may be easier and more worthwhile to have the buying facility shell your pecans for you after purchase. While sorting out damaged nuts is a step that could change the final buying price, shelling is not.


The trickier part about selling your pecans is the actual cost per pound. According to several buying facilities, the current market prices for pecans can change hourly. Several factors weigh into the price, but it mostly deals with the size of crop in any given year. Demand is high and rising for pecans. However, supply sometimes suffers significantly due to weather or weevils. Therefore, offers can change dramatically between the beginning and the end of the season. At the moment, a safe estimate for selling your pecans is $2.50 per pound.  


The following companies will buy, crack, shell, sort and grade your pecans.
