Christmas With Pecans Giveaway - Sunnyland Farms Pecans

My parents were part of the Great Migration. The Great Migration is when African Americans moved away from the south of the United States. 

"The Great Migration was the movement of six million African-Americans out of the rural Southern United States to the urban Northeast, Midwest, and West that occurred between 1916 and 1970. Until 1910, more than 90 percent of the African-American population lived in the American South." Wikipedia  Read more about the Great Migration.

My sisters and brother's holiday centered around a Southern Christmas tradition. Poinsettias filled our home, fruits like oranges, tangerines, and mandarins were in abundance and of course pecans in the shell were always included.

When my parents want a true taste of home they will buy from the source. They will not buy pecans from the grocery store but order them from Sunnyland Farms. 


Sunnyland Farms is a third generation family owned business located in Georgia. Their main product is pecans but they offer much more that. They also sell a variety of nuts, candies, cakes, and chocolates. Check out what they sell by going to their online store.


Pecans make for a tasty snack and they are good for the body. They are high in antioxidants and including vitamins A and E. Antioxidants fight and eliminate the free radicals which are responsible for causing cancers, chronic conditions such as heart disease, and premature skin aging,

I want to share with one reader a taste of my childhood during Christmas. One person will win a gift tin of raw mammoth pecans. The contest is open to anyone who lives in the United States. Good luck to all that enter and to remember to share the giveaway with friends.
