Schermer Pecans

by Anne Paddock

Some of the best tasting pecans in the world are grown in the south central orchards of North America where the hot and humid climate allows pecan trees to grow and bear the rich, buttery nut meats year after year. At Schermer Pecans in Glennville, Georgia (60 miles west of Savannah), the pecans have been grown and harvested by five generations of the Schermer and Wetherbee families since 1946.

Schermer Pecans are what some people would call a fully vertically integrated company: they plant, tend, harvest, shell, package, and distribute their own pecan products, which allows the customer to receive a fresh, high quality product directly from a Georgian orchard.

Elliott Pecans: A very high-quality pecan known for its robust sweet flavor and crunchy texture. Available in limited quantities of fresh shelled halves or roasted and salted halves.The top of the line and the ones you want to hide from your kids so you don’t have to share.
