Well it has been a while since we’ve posted an update and I can’t think of a better reason to get back to it than a visit to the James Beard House in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City.

There’s just something about Spring that makes me nostalgic: lacey white frocks, pretty pastels, crisp white linen tablecloths, big platters of ice cold deviled eggs, freshly waxed lemon scented dining room tables with big pitchers of sticky sweet ice tea… Ahhh….welcome back Springtime, you darlin’ thing you!

My passion for all things culinary happened by accident, as do many good things. Working professionally in both the restaurant and catering industries gave me the background but I was the people person; customer relations was my forte. It wasn’t until I began cooking in my own kitchen, free to experiment, taste and create that I fell in love with the art of cooking. I think cooking is a lot like creating art, you can’t be afraid to fail and often will. However, the few successes that come along the way are oh so worth it. Plus you get to share these victories with your family and friends! On that note, here is a summer recipe I think you will love! Continue reading Summer Recipe- Mandarin Pecan Slaw

I recently traveled to China with US Pecans, an industry effort to market pecans grown in the United States. The trip was broken into two parts, the SIAL Food Show in Shanghai followed by a visit to several pecan roasters in Lin’an in Zhejiang province. The experience was memorable both professionally as well as personally in a number of ways and I thought it would be great to share the highlights. Continue reading A Trip to China With US Pecans
Want to take just a minute to say Thank You to all the nice folks who made our recent stay in New York so special. Alex and I represented Sunnyland at our first trip to the International Restaurant and Food Service Show.
We had a great time sharing our excellent Sunnyland Pecans with visitors to the show, many who were trying Pecans for the first time. An unexpected treat were the folks who stopped by the booth who already knew us. We enjoyed the opportunity to meet some of our customers in person. Continue reading
How cool is this machine! This is a Hedger trimming the limbs and tops of some of the older, larger trees in the Willson Farming Co. orchard. The trees you see here were planted in 1984 and have grown virtually untamed since then. While they make for a beautiful canopy they also hog the natural sunlight that other trees need to grow and bear fruit.
Finally a chance to pause for a moment and reflect on this past year. Many of you already know, but if you did not… The holiday season is the busiest time of the year for us; and, this year was no exception. For that we owe our sincere thanks and appreciation to each of you our valued friends/family/customers.
Throughout my career here at Sunnyland Farms, I have heard the story numerous times of Mr. Willson holding Mrs. Willson up so that she could squeeze one more package on the UPS trailer before the driver was allowed to pull off. As the Shipping Manager, I understand the significance of that moment. Personally, at the end of the day, there is/was no greater feeling than when you know you have done absolutely everything within your power to get every package on its way. It’s a great feeling when at the end of the day you know the job was well done. Continue reading “I Love Shipping”
