The Durham Pecan legacy, dating back to 1928, was born from W.M. Durham, Sr.'s vision of providing people with the freshest and highest quality pecans. In the face of adversity, he created opportunities for others by setting up long tables for workers to shell pecans by hand, earning money based on the weight of the pecan meat. This commitment to quality and community has been the cornerstone of our business for over 90 years.


In 1998, H.L. “Odie” Dollins combined Durham Pecan with Ellis Pecan to form Durham-Ellis Pecan Company. After 95 years of business, our mission remains the same: to establish customer satisfaction and loyalty by providing top-quality products and services.


Durham-Ellis Pecan Company makes its home in Comanche, Texas, snugly tucked among the hills of Central Texas. Our facilities cover over 165,000 square feet. Durham-Ellis Pecan Company is a well-known Pecan nut processor and distributor that handles millions of pounds of pecans, dried fruits, candies, mixes, and roasts millions of pounds of peanuts and other nuts. We pride ourselves on being able to roast and package all our products with state-of-the-art processing and packaging equipment. We have adequate cold storage buildings to ensure freshness year-round.  Our customer list comprises grocery stores, ingredient users, bakeries, food service suppliers, and restaurants.


We encourage and invite you to make selections from our online store, corporate gifts, fundraising program, and wholesale products.
