This segment of Industry on Parade, a nationally syndicated television series from the 1950s, highlights Nutty Brown Mills, a factory located on the Silver Spur Ranch in Cedar Valley, Texas. In addition to raising Shetland ponies, owner Alan Sears mills flour from cottonseed hulls. The flour is then used to make Nutty Brown Bread, a low-starch alternative. During World War II, the company also began producing pralines and other candies. Today, Nutty Brown Mills is the home of the Nutty Brown Cafe and Amphitheater. Pralines remain on the menu and even use the original recipe.
