Pearson Farm Inshell Complaint and Return Policy
Effective on Nuts Sold after 1/1/2019
While pecans grown on Pearson Farm end up all over the world, each season, we pick out the best pecans to sell directly to you under our own label. We are committed to offering only the best of the crop to our customers: we’ve been known to grade our inshell pecans twice just to make sure we’re comfortable with the quality that ends up at your table, by your fireside, or on your screened-porch.
But we know that even with the utmost attention to detail at each step of the growing, packing, and fulfilling process, we will occasionally make a mistake or hear a complaint. When that happens, here’s what you can expect. Below, see how we will handle complaints related to quality, variety, and size.
QUALITY: Pearson Farm guarantees that all of our inshell pecans meet USDA No. 1 standards as found in the U.S. Standards for Grades of Pecans in the Shell (Tolerances, §51.1404)1 and comply with international trade agreements. This means that you can expect less than 5% shell defects and less than 12% kernel defects and greater than 92% variety-true constitution. If you feel that the pecans you have received do not meet these standards, we will provide you with a return service label. Once we receive the pecans, we will inspect them against the standards referenced above. If the pecans do not exceed the standards, we will offer you a full refund. If they do, we will offer you a refund less a restocking fee of $17.50.
VARIETY: If we have shipped you the wrong variety (for example, you ordered Schley but received Elliot) we will ship you the correct variety of the same size as the original order. We reserve the right to have the original shipment returned, which we will do by including a return service label in your replacement shipment.
SIZE: If we shipped you fewer pounds than you ordered (for example, you ordered 10 lbs but only received 5 lbs), we will send more pecans so that you will have at least as many as you originally ordered.
