  • Pearson Farm's TEST Kitchen

    While our pecan trees are getting ready to rest and relax after a bountiful harvest, and the peach trees are snoozing as they prepare for their time to shine, Mary's Kitchen is hard at work testing new ingredients and developing new recipes.... honestly, we're just looking for bigger and better ways to impress you with our peaches and pecans ;)

    We do this every year and of course, some years are more successful than others. A few notable test recipes that made the cut over the years are our Signature Champagne Pecans, Peach Pepper Jelly, and after several seasons of testing, we finally perfected the recipe for our Shortbread and Cheese Nutty Fingers last year.

    So what will be testing in Mary's Kitchen this year??  We all throw out ideas, but it really comes down to Ms. Mary and Maria brainstorming product ideas, and ingredient items, along with A LOT of input from our taste testers (lucky FARM Family members available when the goodies come out of the oven.)  We have some pretty exciting treats being created in our Test Kitchen these days, but there's always room for more.  Everything we grow, harvest, and cook is for our customers, so we’d love to hear from you. What would you like to see Pearson Farm add to our delicious peach and pecan menu?  Post your comments, and perhaps your idea will make its way to our test kitchen or maybe into next year’s catalog as a new item!  We can't wait to hear from you....

     

  • Pearson Farm Snickerdoodle Decorating Contest

    A staggering  number of boxes filled with roasted pecans, homemade cakes, decadent chocolates, and sweet jellies have made their way out the doors of Pearson Farm this week.  That doesn't happen without long hours, tired backs, fatigued minds, a testy attitude or two, and maybe even a temper tantrum, so.... Just for fun, and because we had nothing better to do (yeah, right!), we had a cookie decorating contest in our Mail Order Department yesterday.  We pulled out a couple dozen of our delicious Pecan Snickerdoodle Cookies, brought in icing, sprinkles, candies, and Maple Pecan Crumbles, and transformed the cookies into Holiday masterpieces.  We even invited Mr. Al to choose the winning cookie..... here are a few of the entries

    What's that saying, "All work and no play make Jack a dull boy"?  Here's what we have to say about that....Yesterday, Pearson Farm had a record season shipping day.  We fulfilled all our orders and had them on the Brown truck 30 minutes before closing time.... AND found time to decorate cookies......  Nobody can ever call Pearson's a dull Farm!!

    Please help us congratulate Ana, who was chosen the Pearson Farm Snickerdoodle Decorating Champion!  She piped icing all over her cookie to create the cutest green face, red hat and scarf.  She delicately placed the candies for his mouth and hat decorations.  Mr. Al was very impressed with her cookie decorating skills,  but I really think it was the eyelashes that got him ;)

    If cookie decorating happens to make your Holiday to-do list, don't forget to order some of our Pearson Farm Snickerdoodle cookies.  They are the perfect size and shape, not to mention, they are DELICIOUS!! We hope you will take our lead and plan a fun activity  with your family during the holidays.  After all, the best days are always spent with the ones you love.... 

     

  • Thanksgiving Came A Little Early To Pearson Farm

    Whether you're preparing a simple meal for a few or a feast for many, we are certain that the Thanksgiving menu is at the top of your To Do list.  Recently, we were discussing our Thanksgiving traditions during lunch and it got us to thinking..... how could we use pecans in more ways on our Thanksgiving tables? As you know, we LOVE pecans around here, and we try to use them as much as possible, so we were surprised to find that other than desserts, nuts (especially) pecans are an underused ingredient in most Thanksgiving eats.

    We made the decision right then and there that Pearson Farm needed to change that fact. Quickly, this simple idea turned into a challenge for our Mail Order team.  We shared family recipes and favorite dishes. We checked out cooking websites and shared special traditions.  Our break room turned into a perpetual Thanksgiving test kitchen as we experimented with sweet potatoes, cornbread, and LOTS of green beans. Our goal was to create traditional, Thanksgiving-inspired dishes that contained our crunchy, buttery Pearson Farm pecans.

    After 2 months, the menu is finally complete.  Along with a few already found on our website, we have created a THANKSGIVING RECIPE Section that highlights 12 of these delicious, inspired, and in some cases, clever holiday recipes that will be savored by all your holiday guests.  We have truly enjoyed every minute of searching, inventing, cooking and especially eating these dishes, but our favorite part of the whole experience was spending time together, sharing delicious food, making wonderful memories, and creating new ones to talk about for years to come.  Our little challenge turned into an early Thanksgiving celebration at Pearson Farm.  We invite you to try these wonderful dishes, and if you do, please make sure to send us a picture and leave us a comment here or on our Facebook page.  We hope you and yours have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

     

  • from Mr. Al and Annie of Nova Scotia

    Please enjoy this guest post from Mr. Al
    Mary and I just returned from a trip to Nova Scotia, where her grandmother was raised in a convent. We searched libraries, cemeteries and family ties. We really gained an appreciation for Mary’s ancestry, the history of her family, and the land of Nova Scotia. We also missed being involved in the wrath of Hurricane Irma, be we came home to her devastation- many downed trees and broken limbs. It will be a big job cleaning the orchards before Harvest.

    While in Nova Scotia, we visited a few wineries and at Blomidon Estate Winery I mentioned to Annie, the host, that I grew peaches and pecans. She exploded with a recipe that I want to share with you. Annie was a delight and with some coaxing agreed to give the recipe again for the camera in English with her French accent and bubbly enthusiasm. Since I haven’t tried the recipe myself, I can only enjoy it in theory but I recommend you try it and try Nova Scotia in September and Blomidon Estate Winery, and ask for Annie!

  • Thanksgiving Is Almost Here and I Cranberry Stand It

    After turkey, there are 2 foods that simply define Thanksgiving; cranberry sauce and pecans. Here is a bit of holiday history.

    Cranberry sauce, or relish as some refer, was first sold in 1912 and became a mass market item during the 1940’s. Cranberries, are one of the only fruits actually native to North America.

    Pecans, have their roots (I couldn’t resist) in central and eastern North America and the river valleys of Mexico. Pecans have been consumed as far back as the pre-colonials, who began the Thanksgiving traditions that we still follow today.

    Cranberry Pecan Relish Cranberry Pecan Relish

    Pearson Farm has been growing Pecans in Georgia since 1885. Our 5th generation farm has been a family tradition just like Thanksgiving has been yours. So, this year we wanted to give you a recipe to bring this all together.

    We would like to elevate the humble canned cranberry sauce recipe with our own take, adding our award-winning Georgia Pecans. This recipe is sure to please everyone at your Thanksgiving feast. To watch the recipe click on the link below:
