Description

From a certified organic farm this family offers from its collection of 1500 mature pecan trees fresh activated pecans for the health conscious consumer.

 

To produce each bag of activated pecans for you, we spend some 28 hours preparing the pecans in Tasmanian Mountain Water  and a small amount of Olsen’s salt . This is the only considered ingredients added to this product.  These two products ensure that the activation level in each pecan is in our opinion optimised and the depth of the flavour maintained in what is now considered to be a light and fluffy tasting pecan. Kootingal Pecan received a silver medal in Royal food show, New South Wales in 2023 with our first entry into a highly competitive environment.

 

The Nuts in shell are harvested each June over a 6 week period by family and friends. The pecans are sorted and dried before being prepared on site for activation. The Kootingal pecans from nut in shell to activated pecan all happens on-farm before being shipped to you where-ever you are located in the world. The nuts are collected, sorted, cracked, activated and packed on site, minimising food miles before being shipped.

From 2023, the pecans at Kootingal are certified organic. That is no chemicals are applied to the trees.

We collectively seek to minimise;

  • the use of machinery through the orchard, minimising soil compaction. Preferring to walk through the orchard than travel by vehicles.
  • the drawing of water from local sources to irrigate the orchard as we monitor the moisture levels in the orchard soil. Seeking to irrigate on an as need during the growing season within the Orchard. A deep cover crop throughout the orchard and surrounding fields supports the soil structure and the livestock within assisting in managing the need to irrigate within the orchard.
  • the use of external organic materials to assist with composting.

There is limited availability of activated pecans for the consumer each year as we do not ever purchase pecans from other growers.
