This years MNGA Fall Pre-harvest Meeting will be hosted by Kevin McGraw on Saturday, September 30th, 2017
at 100 Summer House Lane, St. Charles, MO. We will open for conversation and coffee at 9:00 a.m. The McGraws have 250 producing pecan trees on 8 acres and varieties include Pawnee, Kanza, Lokota,Yates, Meramac, Peruque, Posey, and Lipan. Kevin shakes the trees to drop the pecans, harvests them with a Bag-a –Nut, cleans them with a Savage cleaner, and then sends them to Dan Shepherd for final processing. In addition to touring the orchard we will also see his equipment including the bag-a-nut for harvesting, the Savage cleaner, a sprayer, and a freezer for long term storage.
