Local Spotlight: Shute Pecan Company

Shute Pecan Company

Pecan pancakes. Apple cranberry pecan salad. Butter pecan chicken. We can think of a way to eat pecans in every meal—including dessert (hello, pecan turtle cookies)! Or, you can just munch on them as-is for calcium-heavy snack, complete with healthy fats. Even better, you can support a local business along the way: Dothan’s own Shute Pecan Company, located at the corner of Oppert Road and Ross Clark Circle.
