Regenerative Agriculture Efforts at Swift River Pecans

Presented by Troy Swift 

Troy Swift, retired from the aerospace industry and now works full-time on his Swift River Pecans. Located near San Marcos in the Hill country.

During the talk he will tell us about his challenges growing pecans, from the soil health and striving for biodiversity on the farm. He will also tell how he controls pests and takes advantage of bats. Wonder if all the bats in Austin are going to his pecan orchard? He says he will show us how he uses a Johnson Su Bioreactor for composting.

He is vice president of the Texas Pecan Growers Assn and board member of Merling Tuttle’s Bat Conservation.

His store in Fentress sells pecans, pecan oil, and many other pecan products.
