Giveaway: Pecans

I’ve been so busy, I haven’t done a giveaway in a long time. It’s time to fix that.


This giveaway is for 2 pounds of in-shell pecans! These pecans are grown here on the Ranch. They are, dare I say it ……  organically grown. That is, they aren’t certified, but we don’t use any sprays on them. My Mom uses chicken poo (free range!) to fertilizer them and that is it. Interesting fact about pecans is that they are an alternate bearing crop, which means they have a “heavy” crop every other year. That heavy crop tends to deplete the next year’s crop, which is why you have that pattern.


Once de-shelled these nuts are perfect for pies, candy, cookies, or just plain snacking. If you need any tips or pointers on how to de-shell, dry or need recipes, let me know! I will pick my winner using random.org next Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2011. Just leave a comment below to enter. Good luck!

My Shameless Attempt at Self Promotion: Ranch Giveaways

Obviously I want to share my agricultural life with people – hence the blog. I am always looking for new ways to connect with other producers and especially looking for ways to connect with my consumers. I noticed other bloggers doing giveaways on their blogs. I think that is a marvelous idea! I’ve done a couple of my facebook, and they garnered a lot of interest and participation. Plus everyone likes free stuff!!!

Since my facebook is private to most people I’ve decided to move the giveaways to my blog. What will I be giving away you ask? Well that depends on many factors – location of my winner, what is ripe on the ranch, what little crafty project I am working on. I promise you my giveaways will be random and interesting.

Without any further delay let’s start the giveaways!

This giveaway is for a jar of our honey.


How do you win? Easy, just leave a comment on my blog from now, August 16, 2011, to August 23, 2011. Next week I’ll put all the names in a hat and pick my winner at random. Added bonus if your comment requests a blog post about a ranch topic! And you can leave a comment on any post within this blog – I will count them all!

Good Luck!!!!
