Peanut tour attendees were able to relax and enjoy some southern hospitality after a full day of peanut education. This year, tour attendees were treated to the traditional low-country boil and friendly fellowship the Georgia Peanut Tour has to offer at Pebble Hill Plantation in Thomasville, Georgia. Pebble Hill Plantation originated when Melville Hanna acquired the property in 1896. In 1901, the plantation was given by Melville to his daughter, Kate. This is where Pebble Hill Plantation’s story begins.
With its relaxed order and sense of timelessness, Pebble Hill puts everyone immediately at ease and invites a closer inspection of the plantation and its former occupants. Gracious and vital with the South’s rich traditions, Pebble Hill is a home rich in both art and history. The overall impression one receives from this remarkable plantation is more felt than defined.
This low country boil tradition is sponsored by Dow AgroSciences. Marvin Stewart, regional sales rep. with Dow AgroSciences, has attended all 29 peanut tours and sponsored the low-country boil every year. Supper was finished up with a variety of peanut butter flavored ice-cream. This year the tour boasted more than 180 attendees from 14 states and 2 countries including Canada and Africa.
