We are thrilled to be enjoying a very prosperous and exciting 2019. It has been busy, filled with pecan pie eating contests, Ms. Pearl's 8th birthday, vending machine refills, busy retail days, increased online sales, upgrades in our pecan plant, and spending precious time with our beautiful children.
Jared and I are nearing our 11th year as owners of the retail store. We are thankful for our loyal customers, as well as our new customers. We often hear, "We have passed this place for 40 years, and today we finally stopped!" That is what keeps us going!
Berdoll's continues to get in-shell pecans from the orchard my parents owned. It's hard to believe that they have been out of the pecan business for 5 years. We work closely with the orchard to get updates on the crop and which varieties will have the best quality. We take pride in handling all manufacturing details after receiving the in-shell pecans. We expect the best quality as we grade, crack, shell, candy, and package every nut in our facility. If you haven't tried one of our 20 candies, we hope you will stop by our retail store where you can sample many products that we make.
Our family is all healthy and happy, and we think done growing. Hal and Lisa have 9 grandchildren and love every minute of it. Hal is participating in some calf roping rodeos, while Lisa normally has a grandchild with her cheering him on!
Jared and I enjoy working together, going to the lake as a family, and playing with our 3 children. Logan (8.5) plays lots of sports and enjoys lake time, riding his 4-wheeler, and rodeos with Papa. Halle (5.5) starts kindergarten this year and loves to sing and dance. Austin (almost 3) loves horses, the water, and riding forklifts at the warehouse.
My sister, Kylene, and her husband are our country folks! They have dogs, cats, horses, chickens, and goats. Kylene works for a title company and gives massages at nearby elementary schools, while Will works in law enforcement. They also have 3 children. Kyndall (9) plays soccer and loves to cook. Kenzie (6.5) runs barrels, and Mason (2.5) keeps them all on their toes.
My brother, Brandon, and his wife, Brandi, own Berdoll Sawmill, where they specialize in high-quality wood. They also have 3 children. Clay (7.5) enjoys baseball, basketball, and running around the sawmill. Emily (4.5) plays soccer and dances. Luke (10 months) keeps everyone loving life with his beautiful smile!
We are thankful, blessed, loved, and fortunate for our wonderful family, loyal customers, and dedicated employees. We hope our out-of-town customers can travel for a visit soon. Our friendly staff is always ready to greet you with a smile, give you samples, and show you our warehouse where products are made. Don't forget to take a picture with Ms. Pearl!
Thank for you many great years of doing what we love.
