The Turbevilles began their business with one pecan cracker in their old sweet potato barn, which was built in 1955. They bought and cracked pecans for friends and neighbors. Soon word spread, and people from all around were calling, wanting not only cracking, but wanting to purchase pecans, and sweet potatoes. As time moved on they had to add more crackers, to take care of customer demads, and started buying loads of pecans from large growers in Southwest Texas. Each year we added new products, but pecans being #1. The Turbevilles operated their business from October to March, just as we do now. Premium quality pecans cracked to perfection was and still is the biggest seller.
