Southern. Nutty. Classic.
The Alabama Pecan Company
It's the Little Things in Life
At The Alabama Pecan Company, we believe it's the little things in life that are remembered the most. Cracking pecans in the afternoon sun, whipping up a nutty treat in the kitchen, and sipping a warm cup of pecan coffee all sound pretty memorable to us.
Nutritious & Delicious
Pecans aren't just for sweets, they are a nutrition powerhouse. Loaded with over 19 vitamins and minerals, pecans contain thiamin and manganese which have shown to improve and maintain brain function. One ounce of pecans can give your body 12% of your daily recommended intake of thiamin and 63% of your daily recommended intake of manganese.
Pecans also contain more antioxidants than any other tree nut and are one of the best dietary sources of vitamin E. Diets high in antioxidants and vitamin E have been shown to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, and eye diseases.
Move over almonds!
About The Alabama Pecan Company
The Alabama Pecan Company has humble beginnings as the brain child of husband and wife team, Adam and Elizabeth Shanks. Adam and Elizabeth, along with a close family friend and Elizabeth’s father, own and operate several pecan accumulation points in the state of Alabama. It was after the 2017 pecan season that they saw the need for the accumulation business to have a retail side. While watching a little Saturday afternoon football, the name for the business came to Adam and The Alabama Pecan Company was born.
The Alabama Pecan Company is located in Samson, AL, and is solely owned and operated by Adam and Elizabeth. Their love of pecans goes back to their childhoods in South Alabama. From watching mothers and grandmothers make delicious pecan treats like pecan pie and divinity, to snacking on fresh cracked pecans while playing outside, their love of this Southern staple runs deep. Adam and Elizabeth have three dogs, two children, two cats, and a business they love just as much as their other babies. It is their hope that through The Alabama Pecan Company that a love of a true Southern classic can be spread far and wide. Pecans aren't just for grandma's pie anymore!
