DICKSON, Okla. (KTEN) — The tornado outbreak on April 27 has had a big impact on the Buchanan Family Pecan Farm in Dickson, where a decade of pecan trees was wiped out by the storm.

"It doesn't feel good, but you're in agriculture," said owner Carl Buchanan. "When bad things happen, you start again and do it again."

Last year, his farm produced more than 40,000 pounds of pecans. They were expecting to harvest 60,000 pounds this year before the tornado swept away more than 100 years of family legacy. 

"It was for our kids and our grandkids," said co-owner Mary Buchanan.

With 400 damaged pecan trees and the remaining trees starting to die off, the Buchanans plan to start from the ground up, planting trees that will produce pecans within the next 10 years. 

"The pollinators are going to be different; the trees are going to be planted a little bit different; we think with the pollinators being different it will help us increase our crop," Carl Buchanan explained. The Buchanans aren't the only people impacted by the crop losses; so are their business partners. 

Since November, Arms Family Homestead has worked with the Buchanans to ship and sell pecans to customers. 

"They raise pecans, grow them, harvest them, ship them, package them, and bring them to us in one-pound bags in bulk," said Arms Family Homestead owner Daniel Arms. "From November to February, we sold about 9,000 pounds in pecans."

The Arms family sells pecans to almost 1.8 million social media followers, helping their business while promoting the Buchanan Family Farm. 

But what are their next steps as the Buchanans rebuild? 

"Thanksgiving, Christmas, is when everybody's really buying those pecans," Arms said. "The impact for us with our relationship probably won't be felt until the fall, depending on how much they're able to harvest."
