Millican Pecan Company is pleased to offer forward contracting to our customers. This is an effective way to lower overall cost and to reduce the risk of rising pecan prices. Decreases in supply, such as the weather, or increases in demand, such as China's recent interest, can play an important part in the price of pecans. Lock in your price today for a shipment date in the future. If you need pecans as an ingredient our contracts are the most cost-effective way to reduce the risk of rising prices or limited availability.
Most contracting is done right after Christmas at the new year when inventories are at their highest, but can be done at different times of the year depending on pecan availability. Most pecans are sold from October to January during harvest season. The smaller the crop, the higher the price. The previous years pecan crop was an average size crop of around 350,000,000 pounds. We would love to be your supplier for pecans in the upcoming year. Feel free to call us at our toll-free number 866-484-6358 if you have any questions.

Did you know our fresh orchard pecans come in a variety of sizes and colors to meet your needs? Our bulk pecans are typically packaged in 30 pound cases but we can package them to your specifications. About 95% of the pecans we ship are "Fancy" grade pecans (as opposed to the darker "Choice" grade). The "Fancy" grade is the lighter color!
Pecan Halves are categorized by six different sizes and each size is determined by the number of pecan halves that make a pound. Junior Mammoth is the most common size of pecan halves. Most of the varieties that we shell fall into this category. Pecan pieces, on the other hand, are sized using round hole screens. Medium, large and small pieces are the most common sizes. Pecan meal, also known as pecan flour, goes through the smallest screen.
