Our History

My name is Terry Landry and in the mid to late 1950’s my grandparents purchased the land on the north side of Bayou La Batre, Alabama, which became known as Landry Farms. A lot of hard work went into clearing the land to be farmed. The primary crops grown were: watermelons, cantaloupes, hay, and cattle.

In 1960 my Poppa (Bobby Landry) planted 100 pecan trees. I remember as a boy picking up pecans in the orchard for 5¢ per pound. In 1969 hurricane Camille destroyed 60% of our pecan trees. They were replanted the next year.

That’s me on the tractor with my father Ronnie Landry.

On September 12th, 1979 hurricane Fredrick destroyed 80% of the pecan trees. At the age of 19, I helped my Poppa replant the trees. Those were the worst storms. Our family worked the farm through the early 1990’s when Poppa and my father (Ronnie Landry) passed away. Landry Farms was leased by others from then until 2007 when my grandmother (Gernis Landry) passed away.

The family farm was divided between the heirs. In 2010, I realized my passion for pecans and started planting trees on my land in my spare time. Working a full-time job, I could only plant and take care of about 120 trees per year. I started calling my operation Bayou Pecan Company and in 2020 Bayou Pecan Company, LLC was formed.

That’s me on my toy tractor with my Mom.
