The Young Plantations legacy dates back to the early 1920s by when a local farmer named T.B. Young first began growing, consolidating, and distributing in-shell pecans from the Pee Dee region of South Carolina. Due to the rich soil and favorable climate of the Pee Dee, Young's pecans were coveted for their size and quality.
T.B's son, James Givens Young continued his father's legacy by opening a pecan shelling operation in 1945 called Young Pecan. The company provided pecans to the grocery market and grew to become the largest pecan shelling operation in the world. In 1963, Young Pecan opened a consumer division, Young Plantations, to sell their highest-quality pecans directly to individual consumers in the Pee Dee.
Today, Young Plantations continues to offer the highest-quality pecans and gourmet snacks through our catalog, website, and retail store in Florence SC. Our passionate team is dedicated to providing our customers with exceptional quality and customer service.
