|After World War II Mr. Alton Schermer saw the need for quality pecan nuts that could be sold by church groups, schools, and civic organizations to raise funds for their projects. In 1946, Mr. Schermer and his wife Lula created Schermer Pecan Company with the primary focus of supplying shelled pecans of superior quality. Alton Schermer would select the very best pecans available and get them shelled. His wife Lula handled the packaging, received the orders and saw to it that the orders were shipped on time. Because of their personal attention to quality and timely shipments the business grew at a steady pace. As they became older and the work load more demanding, they wanted to find a way to continue to supply their customers with the same superior quality pecans they were accustomed to receiving. In 1977, Schermer Pecan Company was purchased by Mr. Frank Wetherbee, a pioneer in growing pecans in Georgia. With a focus on quality from the orchard all the way to shipment to its customers, Mr. and Mrs. Schermer's dream is still growing after 58 years!|
While Schermer Pecan Company continues to supply quality pecan nuts to their fund raising customers such as church groups, schools and other organizations, they have decided to make their products available to the entire public.
