Georgia Peaches and Pecans | Pearson Farm
When you think of your Valentine, you might be thinking of these 3 words that define them:
To have a Valentine means that you have already made an emotional commitment. Everyone also knows that patience is a necessary ingredient in any relationship and love is the glue that hold it all together.
So, what does Pearson Farm have in common with commitment, patience and love?
As for patience, we live in a world of instant gratification. Fast access to information and same day delivery means that people don’t have to wait for much. But the Pearson’s need patience to produce their quality products. Imagine looking at an empty field and thinking, “At this time in 3 years, we can start to pick our first fruit from trees that haven’t been planted yet.” That also reinforces their commitment to the Pearson Farm purpose.
Commitment, patience and love are just some of what it takes to have a great relationship and to grow quality Georgia Grown products for our family and you and yours, year after year.
If you want to see our commitment in action go to www.PearsonFarm.com
If you want to see how our commitment to quality tastes in person, check out several selections here. We are confident that you will love them as much as we do. And don’t worry, if you can’t wait to try them, we’ll rush them right over to you.

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.
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:
- 1 (16 oz) can whole cranberry sauce
- 1 (15 oz) can sliced pears, drained & chopped
- 1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
- 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled & chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ cup dried fruit mix
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ cup chopped Pearson Farm pecans
Combine all ingredients except pecans in a saucepan. Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat 45 minutes or until thickened, stirring often. Remove sauce from heat. Cover & chill. Add pecans right before serving.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
Yes. And the winner is… Pecans!

Sunday June 19 is the day when we take some time to think about our fathers, to thank them and place them in the center of our thoughts for the day.
At Pearson Farm, we have five generations of fathers to thank. More than 130 years ago, in 1885, Moses Winlock “Lockie” Pearson and his wife, Cornelia Emory “Emma”, planted the first peach trees for the Pearson family.
I wonder if they could have imagined that those first trees were the start of the Pearson Family Legacy that we are so proud of today.
Here is a picture that was taken recently on Pearson Farm. Father Al Pearson, son Lawton and Lawton’s 2 sons. 3 generations of Pearson’s in a single image.
So to all of you fathers out there, we would like to say that we appreciate everything that you do for the family. Who knows what legacy you are creating?
Happy Father’s Day from Pearson Farm.
