From the trunks of cars to a thriving year-round fundraiser! Pecans on Peachtree started in 1982 as a small volunteer operation when a member of the Shepherd Center Auxiliary had the idea to sell delicious holiday pecans to raise money for Shepherd Center. Year after year, the program has continued to grow, and now we sell tens of thousands of pounds of pecans around the world every year! 100% of the net proceeds of all Pecans on Peachtree sales directly benefit the patients and families at Shepherd Center.


Shepherd Center, located in Atlanta, Georgia, is a private, not-for-profit hospital specializing in medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, spine and chronic pain, and other neuromuscular conditions. Patients at Shepherd Center get more than just medical care: They get an experience that brings healing and hope. Shepherd’s team of highly specialized, experienced clinicians are dedicated to helping their patients rebuild their lives with hope, independence, and dignity, advocating for their full inclusion in all aspects of community life while promoting safety and injury prevention.


Pearson Farm is honored to partner with the Shepherd Center as the exclusive provider for Pecans on Peachtree. For more than 135 years, the land known as Pearson Farm has supported the growth of authentic Georgia-grown pecans and peaches as well as the growth of the five generations of family that pioneered it. The core elements remain the same today - good soil, hard work, honest dealings, family and faith. The hope and heart from the very beginning is to share the bounty the farm provided - peaches, pecans, and wonderful things made in the kitchen - and that remains the passion today.
