The Bluffton United Methodist Men’s club, affectionately called the BUMM’S, has fund raisers each year to earn money for local charities. The BUMMS most popular event is the sale of several kinds and sizes of Fresh PECANS grown in the old south in SC, GA, AL, and Mississippi. Next, these succulent fresh nuts are shipped to the Golden Kernel Pecan Company in Camden, SC. Golden Kernel receives the nuts in their plant where they are processed including grading, sorting, splitting, coating and packaging ready for cooking, eating parties or gift giving. These delicious nuts are shipped fresh to you from the family owned, 80-year-old Golden Kernel Pecan Company, right in central South Carolina. You are not only getting fresh delicious nuts, but you are also employing your fellow South Carolinians and giving to local charities. Awesome!
The pecans we sell come in various flavors. All pecans are shelled and packaged in individual one-pound bags except as noted: Fancy Jumbo Halves, Fancy Large Pieces, Butter Roasted – 14 oz bags, Honey Roasted Halves – 14 oz bags, Chocolate Covered Halves, Dark Chocolate Covered Halves, Sugar Free Chocolate Covered Halves, Praline Pecan Halves -14 oz, and for the first-time homemade Pecan Pies. The pies will be available the week before Thanksgiving, but the rest of the pecans should be available earlier depending on the weather.
ALL of the money raised by the BUMM’S goes back into Southern Beaufort County Charitable institutions. Over the years, the Men’s Club has donated Thousands of dollars in support to: Bluffton Meals on Wheels, Council on Aging, Bluffton Boys and Girls Club, Bluffton Self Help, Hospice of the Lowcountry and other local charities. In addition, a College Scholarship Grant is made to a deserving BUMC youth.
