You know the saying, "When it rains it pours?" The end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 certainly proved that a true statement. It rained and it poured for hours, days and weeks!! In farming we need a happy medium. Not enough rain makes it hard for the pecan crop to be big and plentiful and too much rain does not allow us to get in the orchard and take care of it. The pecan trees sat in water for weeks while tractors and equipment could not get in to do the magic work that they do, but we survived!! We have dedicated employees and a family that sticks together and that's what matters!
The Berdoll family are all happy and healthy! Jennifer and Jared, along with big brother Logan (5) and little sister Halle (2.5) are excited to announce a new baby due the end of December. We are concentrating on retail this year as I have come to my senses and backed off doing shows, mall booths, etc. and focusing on our store. We are excited that we will be selling on Cabela's.com this holiday season and will have some products in Heb. Kylene and Will are also doing well. Both are still in the same career path. Kylene is a massage therapist and Will is in law enforcement. Their daughters Kyndall (6) and Kenzie (3.5) are also ready to welcome a new sibling the end of February!!
Brandon and Brandi continue to run their sawmill business and chase their 2 little ones Clay (4.5) and Emily (18 months)! Hal and Lisa are quite busy chasing their 6, soon to be 8, grandkids around. We are trying to talk Nana into getting a Nana bus to haul them all around! They enjoy retired life, but we still have many conversations and ask for advice about the pecan business!
We are looking forward to a great holiday season and start of 2017! We appreciate your support and business very much! Come by the store and see us. We are open 7 days a week!
