GREETINGS from the banks of the Mighty Mississippi River!   Our "Nut Elves" are already hard at work getting all sorts of yummy nut products packaged so they will be ready for you when you call, or better yet, when you come by to see us!

    We anticipate the arrival of new crop pecans any day now.  The pecan harvest is not an exact science so we have to just wait until the conditions are right for the pecans to fall from the trees.  So far, the local crop looks good and plentiful.  Feel free to place your order now so we can fill it quickly when the new crop is available.  If you are planning to drive to Hickman for a visit with us please give us a call to be sure the fresh pecans are available.  Once you have tried a truly fresh pecan  you will not want to waste your time or money on the dry, old, dark pecans that you can purchase at most retail grocery outlets. 

    The cracking machines have been busy for a couple weeks now as local folks bring in the pecans that they have fought with the squirrels to gather.  The cracking process loosens the shell to make it easy to get the delicious kernel out.  The best way to do this is with a big bowl in front of the TV.  That way as you shell the pecans you can eat one and keep one!

As a small business we truly value your patronage. When you call during business hours you will probably talk to Dawn, our office manager or to Karen, the plant manager. We love to talk to our customers on the phone and we really enjoy meeting them face to face!  

  We treat gift orders with extra special attention.  If you want, we will include your personalized, handwritten message on our tastefully embossed card at no extra charge.  If you have any questions about making a customized gift basket or decorative tin, please contact us and we will be happy to help you work out the details. Customer service is the top priority with us!  We give individual attention to your order to be sure it pleases you.   If you aren't happy...we aren't happy!

Thanks from the Kentucky Nuts
