Pecan Cracking and Shelling
Pecans are weighed and then processed through a cracking machine. After cracking, pecans are processed through an air cleaner to remove as much shell and unwanted debris as possible. Normally, about 20-25% of the starting weight is removed as loose shell. Processed pecans are then packaged in poly bags.

Pecans are weighed and then cracked and processed through a shelling machine that is set for the correct size of pecan. After shelling, pecans are processed through an air cleaner to remove as much shell and unwanted debris as possible. Before bagging, pecans are visually inspected on each side to assure 99% shell free pecans. Processed pecans are then packaged in poly bags.
The shelling process involves several steps and many machines. In the end each order is inspected by hand to insure the customer is getting back their own pecans, clean (99% shell free) and ready to use in cooking and eating.
We can shell any pecan for virtually any application. Whether it's pecan pie, sundae toppings, pecan rolls, or anything else you can possibly imagine.
