The setting for Kentucky Nut is a "vintage" building on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River and the natural harbor in Hickman, Kentucky. This building has housed the business for over 70 years.
From January to October it's kind of quiet at "The Nut House" - as the locals usually refer to the business. Visitors are always welcome and will greeted by one of the owners or a member of the congenial staff. Never tasted a wild seedling pecan? How about a roasted and salted Munchin' Pecan? No problem - you can have a sample. Many days in the fall and winter you will find Southern Pecan coffee perked and ready to share. Someone will be happy to give you a plant tour and provide information about the role of pecans in the area. If you are really lucky and visit on roasting day you can have mouth watering taste of warm cashews, almonds or the signature product - Munchin' Pecans. November and December bring lots of visitors to the retail shop as people make purchases for holiday baking and gifting. It really does become "The Nut House" as thousands of pounds of nuts are processed and shipped out.
As a small business, the folks at Kentucky Nut focus on customer service. This is easy to see as relationships have been built with people who return year after year for the quality products and the personalized service. Customers appreciate that their names and preferences are are remembered and that they get to talk to a real, live person when they call.
