The Timbs family has been in the pecan business since 1979, first buying, selling, and shelling the prized nuts. They later began developing gourmet flavored pecans, and their Southern Praline Pecan was an instant favorite. Indianola Pecan House trademarked it as “The Original Praline Pecan,” and it remains a best seller. The company continues to expand its product line with the addition of many more flavors of candied, savory, chocolate and sugar-free pecans as well as cookies, pies, and other confections. The company has two retail stores in Mississippi–its original location in Indianola and another in Flowood. It sells wholesale products under the Wheeler’s brand nationwide, and it also has an online store for both wholesale and retail customers at pecanhouse.com.
What Makes Our Products Great?From its beginning, our company has focused on quality and innovation. The idea for each of our products is born in the Mississippi Delta, and each one is created here in our kitchens under strict quality control standards. Once we decide to try a new flavor, we test and tweak it until it gets a thumbs-up from our staff and customers who get to sample it. We take pride in offering our customers delicious gourmet pecan products that they can enjoy themselves or give as presents.
What makes us most proud of producing Genuine MS products?We are happy to join with the other companies around the state to produce and promote Genuine MS products. Because our products are created in the Mississippi Delta, they have become part of the culture and are looked for and appreciated. Sharing good food is such an inherent part of being a Mississippian, and we are proud to play a role in that.
How does buying Genuine MS products make a difference here in Mississippi?By creating our products in Mississippi, we not only keep a sense of pride in them, but we also create jobs that stay in the state. In addition to the pecan items we produce, our retail stores carry many other items from fellow Mississippi producers. We have great synergistic working relationships with these family-owned operations such as ours, and we believe this benefits us all as well as our customers.
Why should people seek out and buy Genuine MS products?Consumers are becoming more and more interested in knowing where their food comes from, and we believe sharing the stories of how our products are created gives them a sense of confidence.
