Planting
       
     
Planting

We begin planting peanuts in early to mid-May each year.

Cracking
       
     
Cracking

Once the peanut seed germinates, the new plants “crack” the earth and begin growing.

Twin Rows
       
     
Twin Rows

Our peanuts are planted in “twin rows.”

Irrigation
       
     
Irrigation

Peanuts require approximately 23 inches of water during the growing season. We supplement rainfall with irrigation to ensure optimal growth.

Digging
       
     
Digging

When the peanuts reach maturity, we invert them with a “digger-shaker” (or inverter) to prepare for harvest.

Drying
       
     
Drying

After being inverted, the peanuts dry out in the sun for 3-5 days prior to harvest.

Harvest
       
     
Harvest

We harvest our peanuts with 4 and 6-row peanut pickers.

Buying Point
       
     
Buying Point

Once harvested, our peanuts are transported to the “buying point” where we’ve sold them. From there, they are graded and transported to peanut shellers.
