Nelson Pecan Farm History

Charles Nelson, Sr., had a vision of owning a pecan orchard. So in 1979 he planted the first group of pecan trees next to his house. For the next 30 years he planted many more pecan trees and continued to grow and nurture his orchard. Through his dedication, hard work and wisdom he has grown a very successful orchard. The Nelson Pecan Farm has been recognized by many and his pecans have won numerous awards. In 2013 he decided to pass his orchard on to his son. Charles Nelson, Jr. and his wife Donna will continue to care and grow the orchard.
