Credit M.W. DURHAM SR. with creating this flagship brand a century ago. During the depths of the Great Depression, the Central Texas entrepreneur set out tables piled high with fresh pecans and paid eager locals by the pound to shell them.

Friends of mine ship Durham-Ellis gift baskets around the world to rave reviews!
