Tour Details

This Lumber Mill & Pecan Orchard Tour will take you on a guided 1.5-hour tractor ride through our improved and native pecan orchards along the San Marcos River in Fentress, Texas. Though this tour is mainly for enjoying the beauty of our orchards and native riverbottom woodland, it is also educational in nature and will include 5 brief stops where your tour guide will show and discuss topics including bathouses, composting, and honeybees, improved pecan trees, giant native pecan trees, and the San Marcos River.

After the orchard tour has concluded, your tour guide will lead you back up to our retail store where the lumber mill is located. You will then get to see, touch, and learn about native Texas wood of different varieties and huge pecan wood slabs available for sale. Your guide will then show you our 2 large bandsaws, 3 lumber-drying kilns, and large planers and other wood machining equipment.

Your purchase of a ticket includes 1/4 lb of our award-winning pecans and a water bottle to enjoy on the tour, as well as a tour map and a 5% off coupon for any online purchase (single use).

This tour is limited to 24 participants. Tickets may be purchased online to reserve your spot (recommended), or in person at our store before the start time of the tour if seats are available.
