Meet America's PB Farmers

Since the early 1900s, farmers in the southeastern United States have been growing peanuts. Today, there are approximately 5,500 farmers growing more than 1.15 million acres of peanuts in this region. In fact, 65 percent of the total peanut crop comes from this part of the country. This is because peanuts flourish in states such as Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi due to the warmer climate, little rainfall and rich, sandy soil.

While peanuts can be used to make a variety of products, more than half of the peanuts produced are used in creating peanut butter. You may be wonder who produces the peanuts used in one of our favorite snacks? Meet a handful of America’s PB Farmers – hear their stories, make their recipes and learn why they love the industry.
