The objective of the North Carolina Pecan Grower's Association is to encourage and promote research and education in all phases of the pecan industry, to interact with others in the interest of pecan growers throughout the region, and to promote pecans as a commercial crop in North Carolina. One of their prime opportunities is as a sponsor of the NC Pecan Harvest Festival. We invite you to browse the NCPGA web site at www.ncpecans.org
for additional information.
We encourage interested folks to come by the North Carolina Pecan Grower's Association Tent to learn more about growing pecans either commercially or just a few trees in the home yard. See Milton parker at the NCPGA tent for further details and assistance. The NCPGA tent will be located in front of Mann's Clothing Store on South Madison Street in downtown Whiteville. New crop pecans(green) will be available for sale in the shell as well as shelled. Come to the Pecan Festival and go NUTS!
