Futral Farms is a 195 acre farm in Woodland Alabama. It is owned by Karla and Bran Futral.
In July 1998 the Futral's moved from Texas to Alabama and purchased 28.5 acres of property in Woodland, Alabama.
The decision to farm pecans came in late-2012. The first tree was planted in February of 2013. Today a total of 613 trees had been planted, consisting of 11 different varieties of pecans can be found on our property.
In 2021 the Futral's purchased 17 acres to farm an additional 400 pecan trees and 100 plum trees.
In 2022, they purchased 115 acres of their grandparent's old farm place located just east of their farm. This will be identified as the Harris House farm place and they will be adding additional pecan trees there as well in the near future.
In July 1998 the Futral's moved from Texas to Alabama to pursue a career with a local manufacturer and purchased 28.5 acres of property in Woodland, Alabama. The land had about 18 acres in pasture and the balance was in hardwoods and pine.
The Futrals built their personal home on the 18 acres, with the help of their children, and began to look at the remaining 10.5 acres that were currently overgrown with hardwoods and pine trees.
In 2012 the decision was made to begin a pecan orchard. Futral Farms started with 2 varieties of pecans, Excel and Oconee. That first year was hard on the trees with over 60 inches of rain and wildlife feasting on trees.
At today's count there are over 900+ pecan trees planted on the property, separated into Zones based on the variety of pecan.
