The Nut House
Pecans! We also grow them here in the basin. This is the Nut House, but there are several more growers around. Pecans are harvested between Thanksgiving and Christmas. There is a full processing facility here also. They sell wonderful pumpkin/pecan, cherry/pecan, chocolate/pecan, apple/pecan and pecan pies. A small cafe is open for lunches and they sell local artists work in the gift area. The trees are much larger than the pistachios and require lots of irrigation. The worlds largest pecan groves are Stahmanns farms over in Las Cruces.
