Discover Steiner Ranch: 38 Pecans

Steiner Ranch is home to many business owners, including Mark Wells, a third generation pecan farmer. Mark credits his grandfather, “Doc,” for the family’s passion for pecans. Doc purchased their orchard along the Guadalupe River in Seguin, TX in the 1950s, and after his career as a dentist, began farming the pecans on his property. They grow 38 different varieties of pecans at the orchard and it all leads up to harvest season. Mark keeps a careful watch to know when the pecans are ready and depending upon the pecan variety, the harvest is sometime between October and December.
