The Salopek family came to America in 1923 from Croatia, Austria-Hungary. From a steel mill worker to a sheep famer, in 1955 the Salopek family planted their first pecan tree. When the family should have gone bankrupt several times due to natural disasters and economic downturns the family exemplified courage and strength and persevered to obtain success. Today, the Salopek family farms over 6,000 acres of pecans in the fertile Rio Grande Valley, making it the largest family owned pecan farm in the world. Through hard work, determination, and unimaginable sacrifices, prosperity can be achieved. How do you want to be remembered? What’s your legacy?
