The pecans are homegrown on the 90-acre Mote family orchard that was established in 1926 and was named “Pea Ridge” for its known pea gravel.  The orchard includes new tree varieties such as Caddo, Desirable, Kanza, Lakota, Oconee, and Pawnee with a few mixed varieties of mature trees planted in the 1960s. ​

  • Reviving the Farm - Spring 2021

    Since April 2021, Pea Ridge Pecans' revival has been underway; removing brush, spraying existing trees with zinc, drilling a water well, adding irrigation, and building other infrastructure needed to be a top-notch pecan orchard.

  • Our First Harvest - Fall 2021

    Harvest came a bit earlier than expected with nuts splitting and dropping before the first freeze - Mid-October 2021.  Family and friends pitched in to help secure our 2021 crop at Pea Ridge Pecans!

  • Re-Planting Trees - Winter 2022

    From December 28, 2021 through January 1, 2022 we planted 394 new trees as a part of our phase I revitalization project at Pea Ridge.  The new trees include Caddo, Lakota, Desireable, Pawnee, Oconee, and Chocktaw pecan trees, as well as 25 fruit tress, which include apple, peach, pear, and nectarine.  Friends and family all pitched in!
