About Us



Grandpa's Goody Getter was created in the  beautiful Ozark Mountains. And now, we are offering them for all to  enjoy all over our great country.


"Grandpa's Goody  Getter"  so easy, children can  operate it. Designed originally for the hardest shell nut, the BLACK  WALNUT, it can crack virtually any nut with minimal effort. If the nut  will fit in the press, you can crack it...Yes, we have come across one  or two that were too big to get in the press. However, 99% are  accommodated. You get to decide on what size nut meats you want.


Operating the "Goody Getter" is so easy. You move the handle  rearward to open the spring loaded rams and insert the nut to be  cracked. Then allow the handle to come forward taking the slack out of the  rams contacting the nut. The press is spring loaded and self adjusting  to the size of the nut to be cracked. Now, place your index finger  and thumb of your free hand gently around the middle of the nut,  now pull the handle forward compressing the nut until your fingers  feel the nut crack all the way around its midsection.  Move the handle back to center and then on rearward opening the jaws  allowing the nut to be removed while you hold it with your fingers.  You will now be able to separate the remaining pieces and be amazed  at how large the chunks of nut meats are.. IT IS THAT SIMPLE, plus the more you use it, the easier it is to operate. The next  thing you know, you'll be cracking nuts left and right


Biography - My father, Basil Bacon, is a Navy veteran. Built a  successful furniture business. Retired after 32 years as a professional  tournament bass fisherman. Invented the four blade prop for outboard  engines as well as other fishing and marine related products. Partnered in a president of a custom stainless steel propeller business. Right  now, he enjoy his time with families, traveling, hunting and fishing.


Biography - Dennis Bacon is a profound deaf, love the outdoors,  fishing bass tournaments, worked for Square D company as assembly line,  production leader, punch press operator for 29 years, worked with  suppliers, graduated Information Technology in Associate of Applied  Science  degree at MACC. His favorite quote is "Any Impossible is Any  Possible".


When my father developed this machine he intended to start his own  manufacturing facility. In order to determine costs he produced a run of  25 units by himself in his little workshop. The cracker has so many  parts that required welding and machining and is labor intensive he  discovered it would have to sell for at least $200. No one is going  to pay that much for a nut cracker.


My father is an amazing inventor and is a staunch believer in making  all we can here at home. When he retired he needed some extra income  with his Social Security and in later he turned his business over to his son,  Dennis Bacon who helped this business blossoming. My father still tries  to find a solution to see the product performance at top notch.


He felt this was an extremely good product and would be good for the  people who enjoy cracking nuts so He went to Taiwan and imported them.  A friend of his in Sullivan, Mo. owned the company in China that  makes them now so some of it comes home. Dennis is working on changing  from  China supplier to a different and best supplier in 2019 and future.  His goal to see our product made in USA someday which is not easy task  to do.  NOTE: We have them in stock now.


This unit is made to my father's exact specifications on all measurements and quality of material.


With the EBay, Amazon, and our own website in place my distribution  costs are fixed we have an excellent avenue to sell them at this price. Normal retail distribution systems would be much higher.


Wish it could be done here BUT we work on our goal what we can accomplish.
