"It's been huge for our business because people look for the Georgia Grown log," said Goodson Pecans owner David Goodson. "There's a level of pride in people knowing that their products come from Georgia Grown. So locally, in Leesburg, we have people that love to buy from us locally. But even statewide, as we go to festivals and shows, there's just a pride in having a product, like pecans that are grown in Georgia."

You can find more Goodson Pecans at the Pecan Butter Store at 227 E Walnut Avenue in Leesburg.
