I was reminded of a true Southern gentleman and possibly one of the South's finest entertainers the other night.  I turned on the TV and there before my eyes was Lee Epting and his son Ashley sharing tales from behind the scenes of their renowned parties.  The show - Black Tie & Barbecue - is highly entertaining and you'll immediately understand why the Epting name is synonymous with Southern hospitality. I had the pleasure of meeting Lee and his crew years ago at The Southern Coterie's - The Southern C...

Tis the Season for Shotgun Shells & Mistletoe Pecan farmers hear the word mistletoe and they think anything but holiday charm. For us, mistletoe is a parasitic plant that robs the trees in our beautiful orchards of their nutrients. We’ve tried for years to rid the orchards of it, but there is no way to kill the mistletoe without compromising our trees and pecans. So that’s where our shotguns come into play! Before shotgun shells became so expensive, you’d often find us harvesting our holiday mistletoe stocks with a shotgun, but today we...


A Taste of Our Private Stock Friends flock to our holiday cocktail parties because we’re always roasting and salting our favorite variety of pecan – the Elliott.  It’s not that we’re holding back on selling them, it’s just that the Elliott variety only produces yields every other year making them hard to keep stocked. Well, that and the fact that their robust sweet flavor and signature crunch makes them downright addictive.  Try our Rosemary Pecan Cocktail Mix recipe and you'll have the perfect homemade host/hostess gift for the upcoming holiday...


It's No Mystery Why This Pie is a Keeper It should come as no surprise to you that we've tried all sorts of pecan pies throughout the years.  We've tried them with chocolate, maple syrup versus corn syrup, in a pie plate or a cast iron skillet, with caramel and with bourbon (definitely on my top ten list).  We keep coming back to our recipe for Mystery Pecan Pie because the added cream cheese just makes it a touch more decadent.  It's a distinctly different take on pecan pie that...


Fall is here and it's our favorite time of year.  Harvest is a magical time that delivers cool mornings, soft light and more moving parts than a Swiss watch. This year, we've got more than just a fine crop to celebrate! Many thanks to Southern Living and Taste of the South Magazine for featuring our family's pecans and pecan oil in their November issues.  To celebrate, we're sharing two recipes that are Fall staples for us!  Rosemary Pecans and our Squash Casserole.    


In the South, it is prime season for post-hunting picnics, tailgating, and Fall cocktail parties.  One of our favorite appetizers to bring along is the Tomato Pecan Cheese Log from our Schermer family cookbook.  Creamy cheeses mixed with herbs, garlic and tomatoes and then rolled in fresh chopped pecans (or you can roast them for an even nuttier flavor) make a quick and easy appetizer. Click on the image and we'll share with you a recipe that will soon become an entertaining staple in your home as well.


Why Buy Schermer Pecans in Bulk Every Fall? While you may hear that the case for buying pecans and other nuts in bulk is rooted in savings, the real value with pecans extends beyond dollars and cents to quality.  Contrary to popular belief and grocery store placement, pecans don’t belong on shelves. If you’ve ever tasted a fresh pecan it has an addictive crunch and signature sweetness – attributes that those in the store lack. Why? Because pecans should be kept in the freezer. Buying in bulk at peak freshness...


We’re fifth generation growers and third generation owners here at Schermer Pecans. We get lots of questions about how the Schermer and Wetherbee families became synonymous with Georgia pecans. Here’s a look at our history and as you can see – it’s one nutty family affair.  - Putt Wetherbee ‘A Native Nut’ - The pecan is undoubtedly the most important nut tree native to North America. For North American Indian tribes in the South-Central region of the United States, especially in the Mississippi Valley, the seedling pecan served as a...
