ABOUT THE SHEPHERD CENTER PEACH PROJECT
Welcome to the inaugural year of the Shepherd Center Peach Project. After celebrating years of successful fundraising with fresh Georgia pecans, this year we have added a sweet twist – peaches! Order delicious Georgia peaches delivered directly from the orchard at Pearson Farm in Fort Valley, Georgia. Great for family, friends, and business gifts. When you purchase peaches from the Peach Project, sales directly benefit the patients and families at Shepherd Center.

ABOUT PEARSON FARM
Pearson farm is honored to partner with Shepherd Center as the exclusive provider for the 2021 Peaches On Peachtree fundraiser. 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.
