The way the pecan house phone has been ringing this week has reminded me of how busy last year was the week of Christmas!!! If this week is any indication of what is about to break loose for pecan gift orders I better call the North Pole to see if Santa can send me some of his elves to help us out. I would even offer to rent them from him – LOL! The ladies that work in our pecan store and packaging building are busy from the time they get to work until the lights go out when they leave. I have named them my “Pecan Elves” !
It is very important to get your pecan orders placed to ensure availability. Once our stash of scrumptious fresh pecans, pecan candies, pecan pralines, and pecan gift tins are depleted, customers that have waited too long to get their orders in will be disappointed to hear ” Sorry we are unable to fill your pecan order because we are SOLD OUT!”
Bye for now – gotta go get paper work ready for ship outs tomorrow…..
It’s here – Six days before Thanksgiving and only thirty three days before Christmas! If you have not gotten your fresh pecans for your holiday baking it is time to do so. There is a very good article by Forbes about why the pecan may be a bit pricier than last year. This article mentions Natchitoches Pecans and quotes Mark about taking care of our customers year in and year out. The link can be viewed online at http://www.forbes.com/sites/nadiaarumugam/2013/11/06/why-you-should-buy-pecans-for-your-thanksgiving-pie-now
Remember that you can shop from your chair by going to our secure online store 24/7 and browse our fresh pecan selections – In Shell Pecans – Cracked Pecans – Shelled Pecans – Pecan Gift Tins – Gourmet Flavored Pecans – Pecan Praline Combinations and Pecan Cookbooks. The 2013 pecan crop is shorter than anticipated and availability of top quality pecans will be gone soon. Our last day for shipping will be Dec 20 but orders shipping that date will need to have been placed by Dec 15th. Make everyone on your list happy by giving them the perfect gift – PECANS!
Our 2013 Natchitoches Pecans’ pecan harvest is underway. We have worked very hard all year tending our orchard. This year’s pecan crop at Little Eva Plantation looks to be good. It is not a limb breaking crop but most all the trees have some pecans on them. We would rather have a good crop year in and year out as this does not stress the trees like a limb breaking crop does.
Yesterday Oct 31 (Halloween) we had over 7 inches of rain within a few hours. We were in need of some rain but were a bit concerned when the rain kept falling and falling and falling. Thank goodness our pecan orchard is on high ground and drains very well. The weather is perfect today – Nov 1 – the sun is out and temperature is in the 70’s so all should be dry enough to resume pecan picking on Monday.
Check out our newest videos on our YouTube channel that shows Mark on the pecan shaker shaking trees. Or to see post of the pecan harvester picking pecans go to 2013 Louisiana Pecan Harvest. All for now … post again in a few days!
