Sunflowers at Oliver Farm, Pitts

Don’t be surprised to see fields full of sunflowers if you’re driving near Pitts in the summertime. Clay Oliver, of Oliver Farm, has grown a new industry in Wilcox County with his highly awarded pecan, sunflower and other cold pressed oils. He’s recently added peanut, sesame, and pumpkin oils and flours to his product line. My personal favorite, which I can’t do without, is the pecan oil, but I also use the sunflower oil. You can order from his website, but many of his products are available in specialty food stores throughout the Southeast, with new locations being added regularly.

    Brian, I like your photo of the Sunflowers. I just got back from North Dakota where they grow that crop in great fields of a thousand acres or more. Also, the Canola plants with their yellow mustard like blossoms blanket the plains there like gold plate. Yet, there is nothing like the forest of the Southeast and the tall pines of South Georgia.

  4. Try the pecan oil in brownies. You won’t be disappointed! The flavor is amazing and gives them another whole dimension.
