This story begins on the Barnett Springs Ranch right outside the little town of San Saba, Texas where Olan Tisdale was raised among rows of cultivated trees that sprouted peculiar golden kernels commonly referred to as pecans. Needless to say, he's been around these oval-shaped, edible nuts for all his life. You may even periodically find him with sitely, stubborn stains covering his hands from the oil produced by the outer shucks of pecans. A little over 15 years ago, Olan thought it would be worthwhile to start processing and selling these delicious, high-quality pecans which marked the beginning of Fredericksburg Pecan Company. Already living in the historical small town of Fredericksburg, Olan moved his operation into a locally-owned storefront known at the time as Segner's Pecans and Furs on 711 East Main Street. Olan began using this location for all his pecans and pecan products and created Fredericksburg Pecan Company, LLC. A little bit further down the road, the company acquired Texas Pecans and Gifts. The company is still opening its doors at 711 East Main Street in Fredericksburg, Texas and steadily trying to incorporate new computing devices and interact with all the new modes of social media. Not even 20 years ago, the business started out as a lot of pen and paper, corded phones, and local interactions. But here we are!
The previous owners of Segner's Pecans and Furs, Ewald and Irene Segner, continued to play an integral role in everyday operations like processing pecans and attending to customers. Ms. Irene Segner still works in the storefront to this day. She is a fond, familiar face to many who visit the store.
The store has also greatly benefited from the help of Curtis Mohr. He has been with the company for about as long as it has been around. He is an excellent example of a loyal, hard worker who always carries a smile around with him.
The Botello Family has also played a major role in making Fredericksburg Pecan Company what it is today. Diligent and kind.
A little more background... Olan (Pops) is married to Nanette (Honey) and they have 3 children: Ericka, Ross, and Rhett. Ericka is married to Bill and they have 2 boys, Jack who is six and Fletcher who is two. Rhett is married to Jessica (Jess). And how could it not be mentioned that the family has been introduced and invited into a relationship with the Creator of the Universe and His One and Only Begotten Son, Jesus.
