About Us

Shady Grove Pecan Company is a small, family-owned business. Established by Craig & Cheryl Schmidt of Macon, MS, we bought out the Peeples Pecan Company in 2018 (see below). They had been in business for 35 years and were well-known for their attention to detail and quality. We aim to continue in that tradition.

Peeples Pecan Company

At Shady Grove Pecan Company, we custom crack and shell pecans that our customers bring to us. We also sell pecan halves, pieces, gourmet coffee and, in the future, we plan to expand into pecan candy and other products. Stay in touch as we see where this journey takes us!

One of our goals is to serve our community with quality locally-sourced, all-natural foods. Pecans grown in the Southeast fit nicely into that goal. Another way we do so is through New Grass Farms, our family farm located near Macon, MS.

Special Message from Peeples Pecan Company:

Peeples Pecan Company closed its doors in 2018 after being in business for 35+ years. It was a hard decision to make - mainly because of the many friendships that were made with our customers over the years. We were a family-owned business that sold all types of pecan products locally and through the mail. Quality, service, and customer satisfaction were extremely important to us.
Because of those guiding principles, it was doubly important to us to pass our business on to someone who likewise is guided by those identical principles. We found that individual in Craig Schmidt. Craig purchased Peeples Pecan Company, changed the name to Shady Grove Pecan Company, and relocated to his hometown area in Macon, MS.
Craig is a person of high moral character, honesty, and unwavering integrity. He and his family will serve your pecan needs for many years to come. My wife and I will rest easy at night knowing that we have left Peeples Pecan Company in good hands.

God Bless,
J.L. and Lynette Peeples
