One of Gadsden County’s legacy businesses, Mr. Earnest Pecan Shop started in the 1950s and today is a fourth-generation family owned business. The business was originally started by James T. Earnest Sr., and his wife as a mom-and-pop grocery store. Years later, his son James Earnest Jr., took over the family business and it became the pecan house. With James Earnest Jr.’s passing, his wife, Linda Earnest, now owns of the shop and carries on the family tradition.
