About Sorrells Farms
Sorrells Farms comprises over 1200 acres of sandy farm land in the heart of Texas, Comanche County. Since 1977 Sorrells Farms have been major suppliers of pecans, watermelons, cantaloupes, tomatoes, jalapenos, and peaches to the wholesale markets. Owner Kinley Sorrells and son Gayland, who serve currently or have been board members of the Texas Pecan Growers Association and the Texas Pecan Board, strive daily to offer high quality pecans and produce for your summer, fall, and winter enjoyment.
The Sorrells’ operation is fast-paced and constant. The year begins with winter trimming and pruning. Grafting and vegetable planting occupies the spring, and vegetable harvest, irrigation and tree care round out the summer. Finally, the big push of pecan harvest fills the fall. Then the cycle starts all over again. Kinley is a 1973 graduate of Mason High School. After graduating from Tarleton State University, he move to Comanche area where he managed a commercial pecan operation. When the previous owners dissolved their partnership, Kinley realized his long-term goal of becoming an orchard owner.
Kinley resides in Comanche, Texas with his wife Delinda. He is deacon at Eastside Baptist Church in Comanche, a member of the Texas Pecan Growers Association, and serves on the Ag Texas Board of Directors. Gayland is a 1996 graduate of Comanche High School. He graduated from Tarleton State University in 2000 and joined his father full time on the farm. He purchased his first 70 acre orchard in 2003 and has served on the Texas Pecan Growers Board.
