In 1996, the National Pecan Shellers Association (NPSA) declared April as “National Pecan Month.” Pecans are North America's only native tree nut and the NPSA was founded in 1943 to bring special attention to pecan products worldwide.

Old-Fashioned Pecan Pie is a Southern staple filled with combination of sweet, buttery crunch with a savory nutty aftertaste that will make you want just one more piece.

A great way to celebrate National Pecan Month is a visit to Jack Hall’s Pecans in Covington, TN. While pecans aren’t common to East Tennessee , these nut trees thrive in the Mississippi Valley in West Tennessee.

Jack Hall inherited his vintage pecan shop, halfway between Memphis and Jackson, from his parents and has worked in the shop since he was a child. Now, 50 years later, you can still stop by, meet Jack, and pick up some fresh pecans.

Mr. Jack is a pecan connoisseur and can tell you almost anything you would want to know about pecans. He spends his days talking to customers and sharing his love of pecans. Jack Hall’s Pecans is always busy with cracking, shelling, and selling fresh, raw, and all-natural pecans.

While Jack Hall’s Pecans is located in West Tennessee, you can pick some up at the Nashville Flea Market , order online, or pick them up at the pecan shop. For up-to-date days and times that the Covington store is open, call Jack Hall's Pecans at (901) 476-9868.
