The Tip is 'Watch What You Eat'
While in the grocery store recently I noticed that the apples were from South America. Next to South American apples were a bin of apples labeled Made in USA. I decided to go with the Made in America apples since they were US grown.
Always remember the Big Secret- buying more American made products helps put Americans back to work. It will guide you to food you will want to eat that is grown with US labor. If you just take a moment to look and think before you buy, it is likely you will find what you are looking for.
Also, be careful because sometimes labels are not what they seem. Some companies use the letters USA to fool you into thinking they are American products. Trust only those products that literally claim their country of origin. Look for labeling like: Product of USA, Made in USA, Grown in USA, or other definitive markings.
And last, when you begin the journey of purposely identifying American products keep in mind that it may take a little time but the more you look the easier it becomes. You will start to remember which brands are made in the USA and which aren't. This knowledge makes it easy and will accumulate over time. Some food items are not grown in the USA and you will learn that too. The Big Secret tells us we don't need to purchase everything from USA manufacturers just a little more than we are accustom to. If you can average $200 a month more on domestic purchases than you otherwise would it adds up fast. $2,400 a year is equivalent to 7 MILLION new American jobs. We believe that is a good thing.

Farm Fresh Pecans
Harvested from Georgia orchards that have been in our family for over 65 years, our pecans are always hand selected and fresh shelled.
Whether you choose the simplicity of our raw pecans or indulge in one of our signature candied varieties, you'll taste the Schermer family difference.
From our farm to your front door, we take pride in our pecans from start to finish. We're fifth generation growers and third generation owners here at Schermer Pecans. We get lots of questions about how the Schermer and Wetherbee families became synonymous with Georgia pecans and simply put it's because our orchards date back to the first commercial plantings in America.
A lot of pride goes into the care of our trees. Our orchards are considered some of the finest, with our trees bearing yields in a class with the most expensive pecans grown in the world.
