The Country Store was more than a place to buy the necessities to live. It was a cultural hub, where communities could learn the news (or gossip), gather socially, and share parts of their lives. Going to the country store was as much a social activity as it was a shopping trip. The Pecan House embraces these traditions wholeheartedly.
Because people are cooking from home more often, The Pecan House Country Store works to find the best-of-the-best products from around Texas that will help preserve our culinary heritage and allow us to pass it on to the next generation.
From Texas BBQ sauce to candied pecans, we aim to serve up a taste of Texas.Shop Now Learn more
Skeets and Frankie Turbeville were farmers who sold sweet potatoes in the fall and watermelons in the summer. In 1978 they decided to start selling another cash crop: pecans. They began buying pecans from local residents and selling them to the public. After a few years, they set up a pecan sheller in their sweet potato barn.
In 2017, Mike and Karen Griffith bought the store from the Turbeville family. They maintained it as a seasonal business, selling new crop pecans while expanding the store’s selection to include the best products they could find.
In addition to classic pecan-based goods, like pecan brittle, glazed pecans, and pecan butter, they began to expand to include homemade and locally sourced goods, like local honey and exclusive cheesecake, in addition to other treats from all over the state.Shop Now
At the core of our business is a focus on the cultural and culinary traditions of Texas. We want our selection of goods to represent the variety of foods and products available throughout the state. Mike and Karen have taste tested across Texas to find the best-of-the-best snacks and treats to stock in the store.
Our fresh peanut butters are made entirely in-house. We even offer fresh roasted peanuts that we roast daily. We want to share the complexity and beauty of Texas food culture, and we strive to sell only the best goods we can find.
Our products aren’t the only things in our store that embrace tradition. We also offer the kind of customer service you’d expect from an old town country store. We want your visit to The Pecan House Country Store to be an event and our store to be a destination location.
When you come into our store, we’ll do our best to make sure you walk out smiling and satisfied with your purchase. We offer samples regularly. Not sure about jalapeno peanut brittle? Give it a try--we bet you’ll love it.
We provide high-quality products and ingredients. We strive to find Texas products and source our ingredients locally whenever possible. We oversee the manufacture of all our products, from ribbon cane syrup down to our last nut. This guarantees that we’re providing the freshest, best products possible.
Over the years, we’ve dedicated a lot of time to find the best products we can. We’ve tasted every single one and given it our seal of approval. When you purchase from us, you can be assured that care and attention have been a top priority.
