Al Pearson is the 4th generation owner of Pearson Farm, the oldest continually family owned peach farm in Georgia.  At a young age, Al learned to navigate the farm. His father told him, “Son, if you're ever going to make any money, you're going to make it off of a tree.” The pruning of peaches and the shaking of pecan trees quickly became not only a job but a passion. Al has spent his life working peach and pecan trees, along with the next generation - his son Lawton.  They pay very close attention to details to insure the consistent, repeatable, recognizable quality of their fruit and nuts.  Al enjoys sharing what they do with others because they deliver something immensely personal….something that their customers eat and feed their family and friends.
