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.

My grandfather was born in the house and planted a magnolia tree in the front yard as a child. The tree has long since been taken down. My father and his brother were both born in the house and raised there. My sister and I were the 3rd generation in the house.
