Four wells supply a computer-controlled irrigation system with over 3 miles of underground lines delivering water where and when needed. Thoughtful variety selections were planted on a 60' x 60' grid yielding approximately 2,700 trees capable of producing high quality pecans. Pecan markets in the area have proven historically strong and Hideout Orchard is poised to take advantage of this promising, profitable industry.
