Who We Are
In the summer of 1960, a small group of pecan growers from Baldwin and Mobile Counties met and formed the Southwest Alabama Pecan Association.
In 1963, the annual meeting date was set for the third Thursday in September, and a large crowd of at least 100 growers came from around the Southeast.
In 1980, the association changed its name to Alabama Pecan Growers Association, to be recognized as a state association.
