Pecan Orchard  

In 1971, Shepherd Farms started planting pecan trees hoping that in some year they would produce some of the finest northern pecans. That dream is now a reality. For many years Jerrell Shepherd, the founder, searched North Missouri looking for that perfect pecan to graft on the young trees. With all that work has come some of the tastiest pecans grown in the USA on our 200 acre plus orchard. Northern pecans are known for their high oil content which translates into a flavor that just can't be beat.
