Pecans for the holidays? Why nut not?


Legacy Pecans is offering 11 Las Cruces gift boxes now available in-store and online.

Each box features locally grown pecans from the Salopek family farm. Custom box orders and corporate gifts also are available by request. Prices are $12-$85.

The Legacy Sampler includes four four-ounce bags of milk chocolate, white chocolate, cinnamon and roasted salted pecans.

The Taste of New Mexico includes one pound of fresh pecans, New Mexico piñon coffee and Fresh Chile Company’s red chile sauce, posole and hominy

The Legacy Best Seller includes all of Legacy Pecans’ top products in a single box: one pound of pecan pieces, two cans of pecan brittle, two flavors of coffee: vanilla pecan and cinnamon pecan and eight ounces of milk chocolate pecans.

Established in 2014 and located at 2355 Calle de Guadalupe on the historic Mesilla Plaza, Legacy Pecans is open noon-4 p.m. Sunday-Monday and 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday.

 “My hope is that with each Legacy Pecans package a story is told, a bond is made, a tradition is started or simply that a moment is shared with family and friends enjoying a taste of New Mexico,” said Legacy Pecans owner Heather Salopek.
