County and has been doing so for about 10 years, according to owner Kinley Sorrells. To provide quality products and service, Sorrells Farms sticks to a laborious year-round schedule: winter trimming and pruning, grafting and vegetable planting in the spring, vegetable harvest, irrigation and tree care throughout the summer, and finally harvest in the fall. Kinley Sorrells and his son, Gayland, manage the operation and are constantly striving to meet consumer expectations. “Our motto here is to give our customers the very best that we have,” Sorrells said. Dedication can be seen in both of the Sorrells’ résumés. As a Tarleton State University graduate, Kinley moved to Comanche and managed

a commercial pecan operation until he was able to own an orchard of his own. He is also a member of the Texas Pecan Growers Association and serves on the Ag Texas Board of Directors. Gayland worked full time alongside his father after graduating from Tarleton, and eventually purchased his own orchard. He has served on the Texas Pecan Growers Association as well. Kinley acknowledges the rest of the hands working at Sorrells Farms, family or not. The quality of the products, he says, is a direct result of “the work of conscientious employees.” Sorrells Farms effectively ties together both concepts of humble beginnings and widespread success, which customers can see as well as taste.
